Greek newspaper Proto Thema is claiming that American Billionaire Warren Buffet has partnered with Italian businessman and billionaire Alessandro Proto to buy the island dog Agios Thomas, in the Saronic Gulf, near Aegina.
The newspaper said that the two businessmen issued a “joint statement” that they intended to develop the island as an investment property, however, we found no such joint statement anywhere online.
Although intended for development and investment, it is highly unlike Buffet to make such a high-profile acquisition like this.
Buffett, who famously still lives in the modest Omaha house he bought for $31,500 in 1958 and drives a Cadillac he bought “about 6 or 7” years ago, said his idea of a perfect day involves being alone with no interruptions so he can read and think.
If a Greek island is his latest purchase, add that to his only other luxury— a time-saving private jet, “the only thing that I do that costs a lot of money,” he said in a CNBC interview.
We will stay on top of Proto Thema’s claim and report updates as we find them.
