Ron Perelman
East Hampton
Billionaire Revlon magnate Perelman purchased this estate, called “The Creeks,” on Georgica Pond in 1990 for the bargain price of $12.5 million. The house was originally built in the late 1890’s by affluent artists Albert and Adele Herter. If Perelman was to sell the 57-acres now, it is estimated that he could claim more than $70 million, according to Forbes.com.

Located on Georgica Pond, Spielberg’s estate, purchased in 1983, includes a main house, guesthouse, a studio-complete with screening room, editing bay, and offices-horse stables, and staff quarters. Spielberg also bought acres across the pond in order to preserve his view and privacy. Local brokers estimate the value of the property to be $64 million. Designer Calvin Klein also lives in the neighborhood.

Seinfeld reportedly fell in love with this property on first sight, buying the 12-acre oceanfront estate from Billy Joel for a record-setting $32 million. The property includes a large manor house, a guesthouse, a pool, and a barn, and is nearby to Spielberg’s sprawling estate, as well as to boxer Mike Tyson’s home.
