Newmark Knight Frank principal and CEO Barry Gosin bought the Westchester County estate of Eastern Consolidated founders Peter Hauspurg and Daun Paris Hauspurg, for $9.4 million.
Gosin and his wife Jacqueline closed on the purchase of the 26-acre parcel that includes several residences at 617 Croton Lake Road in Bedford Corners April 8, records filed with Westchester County yesterday show.
Hauspurg said he and Paris, who are married, no longer need all the space.
“It is a magnificent property,” Hauspurg said, but too large for them now that their children have moved out. “We are rattling around [in it].”
The parcel includes three residential buildings, a pool and a two-story pool house as well as a tennis court, Hauspurg said. In addition, the property has a real estate pedigree.
According to Hauspurg, Maurice Brill of the Brill Brothers, who developed a chain of clothing stores as well as the Brill Building at 1619 Broadway at 49th Street, built the pool, pool house and tennis court in the 1920s.
In 1946, Ralph Straus of the family that created R.H. Macy & Company bought the property.
Paris told The Real Deal in 2009 that they put their home, which is 40 miles north of Manhattan, up for sale in 2007 but pulled it off the market quickly.
They are now looking to buy a smaller home nearby as well as an apartment in Manhattan. They will be moving temporarily into the Grand Tier on the Upper West Side at 1930 Broadway.
Gosin declined to comment.
The property was listed in February for $9.85 million, according to PropertyShark.com.
Hauspurg and Paris bought the Bedford Corners home in 2000 for $4.25 million, Hauspurg said.
