    [h=1] Shock Jock Howard Stern to Buy Palm Beach Mansion! [/h] Posted by Jose Lambiet , May 14, 2013 Print
    [​IMG]Shock jock Howard Stern has a contract to buy this house on North County Road in Palm Beach (Special to Gossip Extra)

    [​IMG]Palm Beach, say hello to your new neighbor — shock jock Howard Stern!
    While Stern told brokers he didn’t want to buy in Palm Beach when he and wife Beth Ostrosky started looking for South Florida real estate in March, sources tell me the hairy celebrity had a change of heart and found his dream house on the most expensive stretch of the Town of Palm Beach’s north side.
    Only it’s going to cost him a lot more than the $20 million-cribs he looked at in Jupiter and Palm Beach Gardens!
    Stern, I’m told, has a contract on 601 North County Road — an oceanfront house that was not listed for sale and is owned by New Hampshire textile mogul Martin Trust and his socialite wife Diane.

    It’s appraised by the Palm Beach County Property Appraiser’s office at $40.8 million, and the yearly property-tax bill is in the $500,000-range.

    The Trusts, noted philanthropists, bought the place in 1986 for $4.6 million, according to property records.
    Martin Trust did not reply to a request for comment left with his assistant, and Stern’s agent has not returned calls.

    Stern, who’s also a judge on NBC’s America’s Got Talent, signed off on the contract to buy the property after former model Ostrosky came to Palm Beach solo and in near secret to look at several mansions.
    She eventually pushed for the Trusts’ place.

    It’s big, 19,800 square feet under AC. And while records do not show the number of bedrooms, it’s got 12 and a half bathrooms over two floors.
    And the 59-year-old Stern won’t even have to go up the stairs: The home is equipped with an elevator.
    And a perfectly manicured croquet lawn!
    The house, meanwhile, is on a part of North County Road that’s turning out to be one of the most expensive in the world. It has traditionally been home to stuffy corporate tycoons, and is known as “Raiders’ Row.â€
    Stern’s new place is two doors north from the property that Russian fertilizer king Dmitry Rybolovlev bought from Donald Trump for $95 million in 2008.
    It’s directly north of billionaire Nelson Peltz‘ house, which is believed to be worth in the $120 million-range.
    Ironically, Peltz once created controversy by advertising his Snapple fruity drinks on Stern’s show.
    Now, Stern is believed to be worth $500 million!
    In April, Stern confirmed on his show he was looking for a place in Florida but denied it was to escape New York’s high income taxes

    But he just told KOAB that he wasn't worth $400 mil? This will give him about $100 mil just in houses and apartments.

    His property taxes will be approximately $638,000 per year.

    If FL becomes his homestead, he will easily pay for his house just in Income tax Savings alone.

    A very smart Money move.

    So now the progressive elitist so concerned with the environment has a 16,000 sq ft house in the Hamptons, a 7500 sq ft apartment in NYC and a nearly 20,000 sq ft house in Florida. All for two people and four cats. Nice carbon footprint.

    Beth came to Florida "solo and near secret". Everywhere Beth goes by herself is near secret. No one knows who she is or even cares.
