Less than a year after buying a house in Pound Ridge, the Connecticut-born musician and disc jockey known as Moby has sold the property to raise money for charity, Mansion Global reported. The two-bedroom home, which was built in 1956 and designed by David Henken, a “disciple” of famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright, took a slight price chop. Moby, whose given name is Richard Melville Hall, bought it for $1.24 million in March and listed the home for $1.3 million in July. He ended up flipping the property for $1.1 million, according to various news reports. In an Instagram post over the summer, Moby said he was selling the house at 280 Salem Road because he was “rarely there,” adding that he would put the money toward causes he believes in, such as “progressive political candidates” and animal rights. It was not immediately clear who purchased the 2,562-square-foot home. Muffin Dowdle of Ginnel Real Estate had the listing. [Mansion Global]
