Trophy real estate purchases seem to come in pairs in New York – one in the city, another in the Hamptons.

After buying a $27 million penthouse at 56 Leonard Street earlier this year, Leon Shaulov, a hedge fund manager and former trader at the disgraced Galleon Group, has plunked down $32 million for a beachfront Southampton pad, The Real Deal has learned.

The four-bedroom, 7,200-square-foot home at 134 Murray Lane was listed for $35 million and sits on two acres of land in the Murray-McDonnell compound. The property comes with 200 feet of private beach, a pool, a tennis court, and the potential to build up to 13,000 additional square feet.

Shaulov’s new neighbors include Howard Stern and Heather Mnuchin.

Shaulov now runs Maplelane Capital, a hedge fund which he founded in 2010. As of May 2017, the company had $1.95 billion in assets under management, according to an SEC filing. He was previously a senior trader with the Galleon Group, which closed in 2009 amid an insider trading scandal that resulted in prison time for CEO Raj Rajaratnam.

Shaulov recently married his partner, Irina Krupnik, who is also listed on the deed for the penthouse.

Shaulov did not respond to requests for comment, nor did the seller, Susan Smith.
