59 Middle Lane

Talk about bad Feng Shui. A Hamptons home where a private equity bigwig was murdered in 2001 sold for more than $8 million — a steep discount from last year’s $12.7 million listing price.

“Fifty percent of people would rule it out because of the history,” listing agent Judi Desiderio of Town & Country Real Estate told the Wall Street Journal. Some “wouldn’t even go in,” she added.

R. Theodore Ammon, a partner at Kohlberg Kravis Roberts, was bludgeoned to death in the house at 59 Middle Lane in 2001. Daniel Pelosi, his estranged wife’s lover, was convicted of the murder in 2005 and was sentenced to 25 years to life.

The financier’s adoptive children, Greg and Alexa Ammon, most recently owned the property but rarely used it. The six-bedroom English Manor-style home comes with a swimming pool and pond. [WSJ]Konrad Putzier
