“Patience Pays,” well said. Here is a divisive mining mogul Robert Friedland and his wife Darlene who very well exemplify the long wait that this filthy rich couple had to do to unpack their belongings. According to the WSJ reports the Asia-based billionaires have inked contracts for acquiring this overgenerous estate at full price of biting $65,000,000 inclusive of furnishing and fittings. The manor is positioned in Golden Gate Avenue, Belvedere, CA. In 1995, the Friedlands bought this Golden Gate Avenue property for $5,500,000 and stayed there for long nine-years. During their stay there, they spent $32-35,000,000 for its renovation, restoration and reconstructing the 1.2 acre estate that was initially erected in 1895 and offers 360 degree panorama from its southern tip of marvelous brag Belvedere Island in the San Francisco Bay.
A small calculation reveals even if the duo have invested $45,000,000 into the property, still they manage to save $15,000,000 despite their long stay. Isn’t it a great deal? Spread over 11,000 square feet, this three story manor features 6 bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms, accessible both by a private pulley and a snaking staircase with a figurine balustrade and mahogany fence.
The chief floor features a swathe around covered porch with teak hitting a mahogany clad library, a pewter colored living room, dining room with glimpse of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge. The third floor is devoted to the master suite featuring a sitting room, bathroom, big ass walk in closets, contemporary electrical devices. Its background setting is set to earn more than $8,000,000. Bottom line is the feature-packed estate justifies its bulky cost of $65,000,000.
