The estate of the late Vince Camuto, co-founder of Nine West, is putting the 20,000-square-foot mansion in Southampton on the market once again, this time for $72 million.

Camuto bought the 15-acre property, a former convent called “Villa Maria,” for $35 million in 2005 from the Sisters of the Order of St. Dominic of Amityville, which had owned it since 1931. The shoe mogul and his wife Louise spent five years renovating the manse in Water Mill, N.Y.

The main house has 11 bedrooms, 12.5 bathrooms and a three-story spiraling staircase with a iron and bronze balustrade forged in Austria, Forbes reported. There is also a 2,400-square-foot, two-story, separate gatehouse that has two bedrooms and three baths. The estate also features a wine cellar, tennis court, heated outdoor pool and a solarium, according to Forbes.

Villa Maria was first listed for $100 million in 2008. Then, only the 7.6 acres was listed for $49.5 million five years later. Last fall, it hit the market for $85 million before getting the price chopped to $67 million, Forbes reported.

The listing also has new brokers, the brothers Cody and Zach Vichinsky of Bespoke Real Estate.

Camuto died in January 2015. The shoe mogul had other properties in the Hamptons and was known for working with Tory Burch and Jessica Simpson. [Forbes]Dusica Sue Malesevic
