 Rush Limbaugh’s Home Just Sold For An Amazing Record  Amount…

According to a report, the late conservative radio icon Rush Limbaugh’s oceanfront home sold for $155 million, a record for real estate in Palm Beach, Florida.

Limbaugh’s widow, Kathryn Adams Limbaugh, listed the property last year, and an anonymous buyer purchased it through an LLC, according to the New York Post on Thursday.

Limbaugh lived and worked on the property until his death from lung cancer in February 2021.

The 2.6-acre compound, which includes one mansion and two smaller single-family homes, was purchased by the talk-radio legend in June 1998.

He paid $3.9 million for 1495 North Ocean Boulevard, 1501 North Ocean Boulevard, and 108 Mediterranean Road.

The main house has 12 and a half bathrooms and seven bedrooms, according to the listing. It covers an area of 22,630 square feet.

The other houses are 2,900 and 2,200 square feet in size.

The property features stunning beach views, a swimming pool, and a putting green.

In addition, the new owner has the infrastructure for 24-hour security and four additional guest houses.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Kathryn Limbaugh’s $155 million sale of the home set a record for the Palm Beach area.

The previous high for a barrier island real estate sale occurred in 2013. That year, hedge fund manager Ken Griffin paid $129.6 million for four parcels of land in Palm Beach.

Gay Hart Gaines, a Palm Beach resident, remembered Limbaugh as a generous neighbor and a good friend when he died two years ago.

“Rush was the kindest, most genuinely generous man I have ever met. He gave me my first iPhone in 2007 and everyone I have owned since,” Gaines told the Palm Beach Post.

“He was deeply patriotic and the most sincere patriot I have ever known,” she said. “He hugely influenced America for years and will be not only missed terribly, but is irreplaceable, period!”

On Twitter, a number of former Limbaugh listeners reacted to the sale of his home by remembering him for the influence he had on their lives.

 

The new occupant of Limbaugh’s estate will be on the hook for serious property taxes. Realtor.com estimates taxes that were paid on the estate in 2021 totaled $499,482.
