Anderson Cooper Buys First Real Family Home

June 23, 2014 by Billionaire Addresses

CNN Newsman Anderson Cooper finally has a “real” family house he can call his own. After years of visiting many different “family” homes owned by his famous relatives and family, the Vanderbilt’s, Anderson finally has a house he can truly call his own family home.
According to records, Anderson and his partner, Benjamin Maisani,
bought the 10,127-square-foot Tudor revival stone mansion, called Rye House, for somewhere in the mid-to-high seven figures. The mansion was built in 1908 for heiress Isabella Douglas Curtis and was designed by Wilson Eyre, a founder of House & Garden magazine. The 9 bedroom, 9 bath, home includes an Olympic-sized swimming pool and tennis court, and is on the National Register of Historic Places. The sellers, Karen and Marc Shaw, bought the house 15 years ago and carefully restored it to its original glory.
The Vanderbilt fortune has been a staple of talk as far back as the gilded age (1870’s to around 1900) which was an era of rapid economic growth. Anderson’s mother, Gloria Vanderbilt, was the only daughter of Reginald Claypoole Vanderbilt, a Vanderbilt heir. The Vanderbilts were known for their riches stemming from the shipping and railroad empires of Cornelius Vanderbilt. Cornelius Vanderbilt’s descendants went on to build grand mansions on Fifth Avenue in New York City, luxurious “summer cottages” – really just huge mansions – in Newport, RI – the Breakers Mansion being one of them, the palatial  Biltmore House in North Carolina, and various other opulent homes.

Anderson Cooper’s normal New York City residence is a 8,240-square-foot Greenwich Village firehouse bought in 2010 for $4.3 million. He also has 2 waterfront investment properties in Quogue, NY. one of which is currently for sale.
Anderson, who makes around $11 million a year at CNN, recently told Howard Stern, “My mom’s made clear to me that there’s no trust fund.”
Looks like the Vanderbilt fortune has finally been dispersed, but still leave a legacy with all the Vanderbilt homes still standing.
