The gavel-wielding pint-size powerhouse’s take-no-prisoners approach on the bench can also be seen in her equally-impressive market prowess from Connecticut to Florida. But don’t judge this little lady by her cover… she’s got some B-I-G taste.
Judith Sheindlin and her judge hubby Jerry Sheindlin splashed out over $13 million on a Greenwich, Conn. manor house in 2007 with 9 bedrooms, 8.5 baths and nearly 12,000 square feet on 12.5 acres with meadows, woodlands, vintage stone walls, picturesque pond, pool and pool house, according to property records.
But for the feisty attorney, bigger is better, so in 2008 she built a mega-mansion with everything the queen of the silver screen could want and more — guesthouse; pool house; four-car garage; staff quarters; 5 acres of gardens with fountains, statues, benches, urns and a pond; 13 bathrooms with gold-plated fixtures; 3 floors, 24,000 square feet, 8 bedrooms, 10 hand-carved marble fireplaces, 50-seat theatre, playroom and pool.
But before that pricey overhaul, they splashed out even more millions on a grand 14,000 square foot estate just minutes away in the same tony town, complete with music room, wine cellar, theatre, gym, indoor and outdoor pools, tennis court and a whopping 19-camera security system.
Rolling in the dough also means having destination digs perfect for a summer escape, so the leading lady of television has a sprawling Naples, Florida penthouse that the Sheindlins bought in 2005 for nearly $7 million. The 8,550 square foot oceanfront high-rise home comes with a multi-million view and the 70-year-old’s old-fashioned decor charm.
And because having so many palatial places to live it’s hard to keep up, everyone’s favorite no-BS judge unloaded her NYC pied-a-terre at The Sherry-Netherland hotel for $8.5 million in June, complete with floral upholstery, wood paneling, Central Park views, and a separate home office.
