Hodge Podge Thursday: Matt Drudge

The Miami Herald reported this week that famously reclusive pork pie hat wearing conservative-minded pundit and news media power player Matt Drudge—creator and operator of the influential, controversial and sometimes polarizing news portal the Drudge Report—paid $700,000 in cold hard cash for a decidedly unpretentious 4.7 acre spread about 35 miles south (and a bit west) of South Beach (FL).

Listing details Your Mama teased up out of the internets shows the a long electric gated protected driveway leads deep into the property where there’s a 4,605 square foot residence divided into a three bedroom and three bathroom front house and separate, self-contained in-law quarters at the back with living room, kitchen, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The property has a (raggedly looking) tennis court, what appears to be a long row of (icky looking) dog kennels, an organic garden and fruit orchard and plenty of room of an Olympic sized swimming pool

The property happens to sit right up next door to the 6,460 square foot house on 4.7 acres that Mister Drudge acquired in July 2011 for $1,450,000. That gives the internet mini-mogul a total of 9.4 acres and just over ten thousand square feet of living space out in the semi-rural suburban outskirts of Miami.

Property records also show Mister Drudge also owns a 3 bedroom and 2 bathroom home on Miami Beach’s upscale Venetian Islands chain—due west of South Beach’s Lincoln Road—that he scooped up in October 2003 for $1.4 million.
