Miami Herald gossip columnist Jose Lambiet reports that reclusive, right-wing, millionaire blogger Matt Drudge has bought a $1.45 million home in a secluded area of Miami-Dade County known as the Redland. Miami New Times calls it a "safari home."

From the Herald:
It pays to be the water-carrier of the Right.

Matt Drudge, the owner of the popular conservative news website Drudge Report, just bought a new house in South Miami-Dade.

He snagged the ranch place in Redland, an unincorporated area, for $1.45 million — cash.

It’s the 45-year-old Drudge’s second big home purchase in the county. According to records at the Miami-Dade County Property Appraiser’s Office, Drudge also owns a $1.4 million crib off the Venetian Causeway in Miami Beach. He bought it in 2003.

His new property on Southwest 157th Avenue boasts almost five acres of lush forest and a five-bedroom, 6,400-square-foot ranch house. It was described in real estate websites as “a safari-like” tropical retreat with a world-class security camera system, large entertainment gazebo, soothing waterfall in the master bathroom and a large Jacuzzi.
Aerial images on Google and Bing show a home that's almost completely hidden by trees.

Random Pixels spoke with a Redland resident who says that Drudge is a "lucky guy."

"That area is one of the most beautiful sections of the Redland. It's in the middle of a hardwood hammock full of mahogany and oak trees. It's choice and it's pristine," said my source.

Here are few photos of the property.
