Former “Today Show” co-star Matt Lauer is once again trying to change channels at his Hamptons home. Its precinct in Sag Harbor, New York, has returned to the market at a price of $ 43,995,000.
The property had been listed in June 2019 for $ 44.8 million, following the divorce of Annette Roque’s ex-anchor. But that price failed to attract a buyer. The beachfront home returned to the market in the fall of 2019, with a slightly lower asking price of $ 43.99 million.
Lauer, who dropped out of the popular 2017 morning show after allegations of sexual misconduct came to light, is once again trying to unload his property without moving from the asking price. But with the hot Hamptons real estate market, perhaps buyers will now give a second look to the spacious space.
If the spread is sold for the sale price, the deal would leave Lauer with a small profit. In 2016, the then-married couple took over the property for $ 36.5 million from actor Richard Gere. The “Pretty Woman” star had amassed three quaint plots over the years and created an enviable estate.
Gere had initially asked for $ 65 million for the offer, but eventually lowered the price to attract a buyer, the New York Post reported.
Located on 6.3 acres, the oceanfront residence known as Strongheart Manor offers views of Peconic Bay and Mashomack Preserve, with a 300-foot direct bay facade, a 240-foot-long private deepwater pier, and a beach. of sand, a pond with a bridge, an island – inspired tea house and two rural houses.
Although it is a private, gated community, the location is minutes from downtown Sag Harbor.
With a total of 12 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms, the offer includes a 6,552-square-foot main house. Built in 1902, the house has been completely renovated and restored, while maintaining its original character and charm.
The floor includes six bedrooms, seven bathrooms and a sheltered porch that runs throughout the house.
Other highlights of the interior include numerous entertainment areas, formal lounges and dining rooms, and multiple fireplaces. A kitchen-dining room has a built-in banquet and opens onto an adjoining family room with a fireplace. Upstairs, the master suite opens to a balcony and the bathroom has a bathtub and double sinks.
Outside, the spacious grounds feature a 60-foot heated seafront pool, rolling lawns and flower gardens, tree specimens, an outdoor fireplace pavilion, a gym and a basketball court. Guests can extend to the two cottages on the property. Susan Breitenbach with the group Corcoran occupies the list.
