playground of St. Bart’s.Now, it’s the latest home of Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, a person close to the deal has told the Journal. With its nearly $90 million sale price, the property is one of the most expensive private homes ever sold, but for the oligarch it will be just one of many spectacular possessions, which also include the world’s largest privately owned yacht, a Snowmass, Colorado ski estate, England’s Chelsea soccer team and a contemporary art collection valued at more than $100 million.
