Socialite, Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested Thursday, by the FBI for allegedly grooming and enticing underage girls for late pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
The mansion where she was arrested is located at rural New Hampshire, is a 156-acre property that was paid for in cash through a limited liability company, according to federal prosecutors.
The 4,300-square-foot timber frame house sits at the top of a half-mile driveway, making it an ideal location for someone looking to stay out of view.
The crib was purchased last year for $1 million in a deal shrouded in secrecy, with most of the locals not knowing who was living there according to reports.
The previous owner did not know the identity of the buyer, and neither did the previous owner’s agent, according to people familiar with the transaction.
“The buyer was anonymous,” a person familiar with the deal told NBC News.
“It was always this mystery woman,” the person added. “I was like, ‘Is she an actress?’’
The whereabouts of Maxwell, a British socialite who went into hiding after the disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein was charged with sex trafficking last year, had remained a mystery until her Thursday July 2, arrest in the tiny rural town of about 1,600 people.
Maxwell has been charged with recruiting and grooming underage girls for Epstein, who died by suicide in 2019 while awaiting trial.
