It could just be a coincidence, but we doubt it.
Just days after Taylor Swift toured a mammoth oceanfront estate in Watch Hill, R.I., the mansion, which is known to locals as Harkness House, has been sold for $17.75 million.
And the new owner, identified only as Harbor Land Revocable Trust, paid cash for the property, according to a deed filed at Town Hall in Westerly. The 11,000-square-foot “cottage” was sold by Marlene and James Benson, the former CEO of John Hancock Life Insurance, who once described living in the house as “like being on a large ocean liner, only it doesn’t go anywhere.”
If the superstar country singer is, in fact, the new owner, nobody is saying so.
