Clintons Buy the House Next Door in Chappaqua

shutterstock_329730752Hillary Clinton has her eye on the White House, but she’s also thinking about her Chappaqua home. She and her little-known husband, Bill, just paid $1.16 million for the house next door, effectively creating a Kennedy-esque, albeit not waterfront, compound in the lush environs of upstate New York.

The 3,631-square-foot home, which formerly belonged to architect Charles Chepigin, has 3 bedrooms and 4 baths – just enough space for daughter Chelsea and her growing family to enjoy when they visit.

Set on 1.5 acres next to the 1889 farmhouse that the Clintons bought near the end of Bill’s presidency, the renovated ranch home features an open floor plan with pecan hardwood floors. There’s a chef’s kitchen with an eating area that’s reminiscent of the White House kitchen table that was the center of the Clintons’ family life in the 1990s.

The master suite boasts a renovated bathroom, two spacious walk-in closets and French doors that open onto gracious grounds with a swimming pool surrounded by low stone walls. Across the expansive yard and behind mature trees that are just turning color stands a tall white fence that surrounds the couple’s original property.

The Clintons also own a home near the British Embassy in Washington, D.C.

The listing for their newest home was held by Douglas Elliman.
