Sheindlin grabbed the mansion at a $3.5 million discount: The home, known as the Bird House Estate, named by former owner and late Campbell Soup heiress Dorrance Hill Hamilton, was going for $12.5 million last year, according to The Wall Street Journal.
It's the most expensive home sold in Rhode Island in 2018.
