Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, one of the world’s richest people, has reportedly bought a new home (pictured) at Palm Beach County in Florida for US$8.7 million (S$11 million).

He previously rented the Mediterranean-style home when his daughter competed in an equestrian festival in January last year, but finally decided to buy it recently. 

Built in 2010, the luxurious 7,234 sq ft property has four bedrooms and four bathrooms. It also has equestrian-friendly amenities like a 1.78-acre riding field, 20-stall barn and a show-jumping arena.  

But the residence is still smaller in comparison to Gates’ five-acre residential compound in Lake Washington, reports said.
