Mafia kngpin’s hilltop mansion sells for $6.9million

A home built by one of America’s most infamous mobsters has been sold.

The 6,529-square-foot hilltop mansion in Fort Lee, New Jersey that once belonged to Albert Anastasia – the head of Murder Inc – was sold by auction house Guernsey’s for $6.9million.

Anastasia, a founder of both the American Mafia and the mob’s enforcement arm, was the boss of what would become the modern Gambino crime family.

In a report, authorities estimated that Anastasia was part of, in person or by direction, close to 30 assassinations by ice pick, strangling rope or gun. He was killed in October 1957 while making his daily visit to the barbershop at the Park Sheraton hotel in New York City.

Anastasia lived with his family behind a steel fence with two guard dogs at the 25-room mansion from 1947 until his death.

The seven bedroom, seven-and-a-half bath home sits on 1.2 acres on Bluff Road, on the Palisades Cliffs overlooking the Hudson River and the Manhattan skyline.

It’s been rumored that the mansion came with a slaughter room – a tiled room with a drain in the floor since converted into a Jacuzzi room.

Amenities of the Italianate-style home include a butler’s pantry; a spa with a sauna and hot tub; an in-ground swimming pool with a cabana and pool house; a two-car garage; and a master bedroom suite complete his/her dressing rooms, sitting room, large closets and a sizable bathroom.

The current owner bought the home for $5million, just days before it was to be sold at auction in June 2016.

Previous owners of the home include former co-owner of the New York Yankees Del Webb and comedian Buddy Hackett.
