The Lattingtown property once owned by Soong Mei-ling, the wife of Chinese Nationalist leader Chiang Kai-shek, has sold for $9.9 million.
Jason Friedman of Laffey Fine Homes, who co-listed the 12.8-acre property with his mother, Rudi Friedman, confirmed that the sale recently closed. The Friedmans also represented the buyers, who are from China and paid cash.
Friedman says he's not sure if Madame Chiang's once owning the property is the main reason they purchased it.
"I think they just really liked the house," Friedman says.
The property was originally listed in July for $11.8 million. The land was once part of Madame Chiang's 37-acre estate, which her family purchased in 1949. In 1998, the estate was purchased and subdivided by the Stillman Organization.
The property has a nine-bedroom home that was built in 2002, as well as some structures from when Madame Chiang lived at the estate starting in 1975. She died in 2003 in Manhattan at the age of 105.
The Friedmans also listed the six-acre property next door, which was also part of Madame Chiang's estate, for $4.9 million. It is currently in contract.
