Technology entrepreneur buys $2.1 million home in Boston hills | Business Local

Four months after the company he co-founded was acquired by a global insurance technology firm, a technology entrepreneur and seed stage investor paid $2.1 million on a 14-acre estate in the Town of Boston – only the sixth time in recent memory that a home sale topped the $2 million benchmark in Western New York.

Andrew Worral, who co-founded insurance software company Utilant Inc., and his wife, Amber, purchased a gated stone-and-wood mansion on secluded Woodlee Court, overlooking Chestnut Ridge.

The sellers were Neil E. Lipke, a onetime Gibraltar Industries executive, and Shannon Lipke.

The purchase involved six parcels in the towns of Boston and Orchard Park, and was completed in two transactions by two separate limited-liability companies.

The Worrals paid $1.4 million for the nine-year-old house, a barn with seven horse stalls and a vacant lot, and another $700,000 for additional vacant land.
