Rumor has it that Mayor Bloomberg will soon close on a $20 Million Southampton mansion and from these historic pictures of the trophy estate I am duly convinced that it's well worth every 2,000,000,000 penny! This circa 1910 Georgian House is approached by a private 1/2 mile drive and shares 35 lush acres with a pool, tennis court and stable. "Ballyshear" overlooks the Peconic Bay and borders one of the world's top ranking golf courses. The compound is definitely one of the most spectacular and important properties on Long Island and I congratulate His Honor on such impeccable taste. A most fitting tribute to a self made billionaire!
