Radio "shock jock" Howard Stern has reportedly bought himself a mansion in Palm Beach, according to Gossip Extra.
Someone purchased the lavish oceanfront home on 601 N. County Road for a whopping $52-million, according to sales records. And that someone is apparently Stern and his wife Beth Ostrosky.
It had been rumored that Stern, 59, was looking for a house in South Florida for sometime, but was reluctant to go through with it. Some reports said he was looking to get away from New York's high income taxes. That and, of course, the weather, is usually why rich folk move down to SoFla.
The home Stern and his wife settled on, valued at a reportedly $40.8 million, is owned by New Hampshire textile mogul Martin Trust and his wife Diane.
The Trusts had the home constructed in 1992 on a 3.25 acre lot, according to property records.
Stern's wife apparently visited Palm Beach on her own and fell in love with the Trust's mansion, reports Gossip Extra.
The mansion, which is located in the lavish North Side of Palm Beach, has a reported 39,094 square feet of living space, with the main house measuring at 18,673 square feet.
Stern, it would seem, has settled himself in one of the world's most exclusive neighborhoods, called "Raider's Row," where his new neighbors are Rush Limbaugh and corporate tycoon types.
