Former von Bulow mansion in Newport sold for $13M
NEWPORT, R.I.—The Newport mansion once owned by Claus and Sunny von Bulow has been sold for $13.1 million.
Clarendon Court is the place where Sunny von Bulow slipped into her first coma in 1979.
Real estate broker Paul Leys announced the sale Friday. He wouldn't disclose the buyer.
The international media descended on Rhode Island as financier Claus von Bulow was convicted of trying to murder his wife. He won a new trial and was acquitted. The story was depicted in the movie "Reversal of Fortune."
Art dealer Glenn Randall and his wife, Patricia, bought the estate in 1988 from a committee managing Sunny von Bulow's affairs. She died in 2008, never having awakened from a second coma she slipped into in 1980.
The 21-room mansion sits on seven acres next to Newport's Cliff Walk.
