Clintons Buy Second Chappaqua Home
Don't worry, they still have the first one, and it's right next door

While on the campaign trail in hopes of re-occupying the White House come January, Hillary and Bill Clinton have more than doubled the size of their Chappaqua sprawl with the recent $1.16 million purchase of a home adjacent to their current 15 Old House Lane compound.
The 1.51-acre, three-bedroom, four-bath, ranch-style property at 33 Old House Lane shares the end of a cul-de-sac with the couple's original 1.1-acre spread, which they acquired for $1.7 million back in 1999 (and which recently housed the Democratic presidential nominee during her much-discussed bout with pneumonia).
Coincidentally or not, the New Castle Town Board has since designated the stretch of road leading up to said cul-de-sac a local-traffic-only street, according to Statesman Journal. Shortly after, the Clintons’ secret service reportedly barricaded the street and began screening cars, though town administrator Jill Shapiro stated that the police chief had received a request for security reasons.
The Douglas Elliman listing (which is, naturally, now closed) boasted of the address's “open floor plan, pecan wood floors throughout, [and] modern chef's kitchen,” which “opens to an eating area with fireplace and the family room all with built-in cabinetry.”
And Hillary and Bill, if you (or whomever the location is intentioned for) are considering a housewarming party, might we recommend these useful fall entertaining tips?
