Matt Drudge Pays Cash for $1.45 Million Florida House

Matt Drudge, who runs the conservative news website The Drudge Report, just plopped down $1.45 million in cash to buy a second home in South Florida. The Miami Herald reports that his new home is a 6,400-square-foot ranch that's fit for a recluse -- which the 45-year-old Drudge is known to be.

Uber-private, the home in unincorporated Redland sits on about four jungle-like acres and has a world-class security system to thwart liberals and other miscreants from trespassing.

The home features marble and wood floors, a gourmet kitchen and a waterfall in the master bedroom suite. The outdoor entertainment area includes a pool and gazebo with a bar, where we are picturing the fedora-sporting Drudge serving up Mai Tais and political rhetoric.

Drudge owns another home in Florida that he bought for $1.4 million in 2003.
