Tim Davis of The Corcoran Group confirms that Burch purchased six acres of land and the 25-room Georgian Revival mansion once owned by the late attorney Howard Gittis. Davis says that another neighbor has paid $16.5 million for the remaining 7.3 acres of land on the former estate.

A carriage house on the estate is now also in contract for $6 million. That sale will close in a few weeks, Davis says.
