Still, you know what they say: The rich get richer!
Bloomberg’s mom Susan bought the four-bed, three-bath crib on the edge of a natural pond for $448,000 in 2001. She then quick-deeded the house to Georgina in 2003, and it became Georgina’s main house.

Georgina first put the sparingly-furnished Stroller Way place up for sale in May 2010 for $825,000, according to records.
The sale, meanwhile, doesn’t mean that hottie Bloomberg, a professional-grade equestrian, is abandoning the village.
“She’s been spending more time at her dad’s house,” says equestrian sports commentator Mason Phelps. “Her dad’s property has a barn where she can train. Her little house has zero lot line.”
