Sandy Gallin and his “Serenity” estate

Talent manager Sandy Gallin has unloaded his 14-acre Bridgehampton estate for $17.5 million, or 45 percent off of its original, $32 million asking price in September 2009, according to Curbed. Gallin, whose celebrity client roster has included Michael Jackson and Barbara Streisand over the course of his career, had dubbed the property — the combination of three lots, including a pond, pool and 6,500-square-foot house — “Serenity.” Madonna was at one point rumored to be the buyer, but Bill Williams, vice president at Sotheby’s, now confirms that it was actually Matt Coffin, of lowermybills.com fame and fortune, and his wife, Los Angeles designer and one-time Wilhelmina Models president Natasha Esch, who were brought in by Sotheby’s broker Rylan Jacka and triumphed in a “bidding war.” The sprawling estate was last asking $19.995 million and was listed with Linda Haugevik of Saunders & Associates and Susan and Matthew Breitenbach of the Corcoran Group.
