From Curbed Hamptons we have this aerial shot of where once stood the $43.5 million home of "billionaire hedge-funder David Tepper." Why tear down a perfectly good beach palace? Because he couldn't see the ocean from every room, they report. Has anyone ever built a house entirely out of smudge-proof glass? That would be awesome! Views inside views inside views. I bet Donald Trump has one of those. [Curbed, photo credit: Cully/EEFAS via Patch.com]
Hedge fund manager David Tepper is a rare breed. Not only did he earn $2.5 billion in 2009 while many of his peers just struggled to keep their heads above water, he still lives in the same New Jersey home he and his wife have occupied since 1990, he's yet to buy a vacation home, and he still sends his kids to public school.
