CHAPPAQUA N Y The Clin­tons have more than dou­bled the size of their Chappaqua em­pire at a cost of just more than $1 mil­lion.

Ac­cord­ing to land records, Hil­lary and Bill Clin­ton spent $1.16 mil­lion Aug. 11 to buy the 3,631-square-foot, ranch-style house next door to their cur­rent home at the end of the cul-de-sac on Old House Lane. The ad­join­ing 1.51-acre prop­erty was pre­vi­ously owned by Charles Chep­i­gin.

“Neigh­bors are 100% happy,” said Roni Ja­cob­son, who has lived on Old House Lane since 1984. “It’s a per­fect house for Chelsea. Per­fect mother-daugh­ter sit­u­a­tion. Neigh­bors are de­lighted.”

Ac­cord­ing to the real es­tate list­ing, the home con­sists of three bed­rooms and four baths “with an open floor plan, pecan wood floors through­out, mod­ern chef’s kitchen with Viking, Subzero and Asko ap­pli­ances (that) opens to an eat­ing area with a fire­place and the fam­ily room, all with built-in cab­i­netry.” The mas­ter suite has a re­cently re­done bath­room with two walk-in clos­ets.

The Clin­tons bought their cur­rent five-bed­room, full-bath home at 15 Old House Lane for $1.7 mil­lion in 1999, ac­cord­ing to land records. The 5,232-square­foot home sits on 1.1 acres.

Ja­cob­son said the Clin­tons have been “per­fect neigh­bors” since they moved in in 1999.

“We think they’re won­der­ful neigh­bors,” she said, adding there haven’t been any is­sues since the road was closed in Au­gust to ev­ery­one ex­cept lo­cals. “The po­lice and the Se­cret Ser­vice have it in per­fect con­trol.”
