Howard Stern, legendary radio broadcaster, has reportedly purchased a mansion in Florida. The property sold for over $52 million.
The mansion, which is nestled in South Florida, was last owned by Martin Trust and his wife, Diana. Trust, who is a textile mogul from New Hampshire, has yet to comment on the business transaction.
Real estate sources in Palm Beach County, where the property is located, claim that Stern and his wife, Beth Ostrosky, are the proud new owners.
And, they should be proud. The home is amazing.

Sitting on over 3.25 waterfront acres, the home was custom built in 1992. Located on the north end of Palm Beach, the property consists of over 39,000 square feet of living space.
That includes the main house which features five bedrooms, 11 bathrooms and nearly 19,000 square feet. The estate, which features both a spa and swimming pool, is known for its amazingly well-manicured landscaping.
Back in March, Howard and his lovely wife viewed several mansions across the great state of Florida. In April, Beth returned by herself.
She was given a private tour of the house before it was even on the market. This, apparently, sealed the deal. Less than two months later, the shock jock bought the home.
How did he pay for the property--he bought it straight out. Filings indicate that the home was purchased with cash and has no associated mortgage.
While Stern has always been a loyal New Yorker, he has always been vocal about how much he hates the winter there. Still, he insists that he would never leave NYC, calling it the greatest city on Earth.
