Harvey Weinstein’s Amagansett Home Sold at Deep Discount
Despite reports that he had taken his Amagansett property off the market, it seems that defrocked producer Harvey Weinstein has sold it for much under ask. We reported back in the relatively halcyon days of September – before the Hollywood legend’s undoing – that he and his wife (Remember her?) had reduced the price from $13.5 M to $12.4 M. At the time they had also switched agencies from Corcoran to Sotheby’s.
Did we mention that the couple originally listed it for $17.5 M? Ah, the good old days. We then heard that he alone, no wife mentioned, had pulled the listing. Now news has surfaced that Weinstein has sold the 9,000-square-foot manse for $10 M. Talk about a fire sale. This is one burned seller.
We’re not sure why the purchaser of record – Taisho Holdings Inc., which may have a relationship with the international corporate giant Taisho Pharmaceutical Co., according to 27East – has a use for a home theater with a 20-foot-wide 3-D viewing screen and a wood-burning fireplace. But we’re sure that time will tell.
