It took about 15 months and $700K worth of pricechops, but the four-bedroom home belonging to Barbara W. Hearst (yes, that Barbara Hearst) has moved into contract. Other than some bad juju?we're assuming this is one of the nine homes that was up for grabs in the extremely messy divorce between her and the late John Randolph "Bunky" Hearst Jr.*?the 3500 sq. ft. residence offers a professional kitchen with stainless steel appliances, a geothermal heating and cooling system, a master suite on the first floor, and five and a half bathrooms. A screened porch/sun deck overlooks the one acre property which includes a heated pool, bocce court and deep water dock.
Anyone want to take a shot at guessing the eventual closing price? It was last listed at $3.295M.
* Coincidentally, the estate of the late the late John R. Hearst Jr. recently came on the market.
