The Real Deal New York

‘The Mooch’ relists his Water Mill mansion for $9.75M

Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci, fresh off his cameo on CBS’ “Celebrity Big Brother,” is again trying to sell his Water Mill home for $9.75 million, the New York Post reported. “The Mooch,” as the former Harvard Law School graduate-turned-hedge fund executive calls himself, put the then-unfinished home on the market in May 2018, just nine months after he bought the property for $7.49 million. Built by noted Hamptons homebuilder Joe Farrell, the 8,300-square-foot home at 30 Lawrence Court has three floors, eight bedrooms, eight-and-a-half bathrooms, a theater, gym, pool and pool house. It will come fully furnished. Mark Baron and Jane Babcook of Brown Harris Stevens have the listing. Scaramucci also tried to sell a beach home in Southampton last year for $3.99 million. The Post speculated that shedding the larger Water Mill home and keeping the one in Southampton may be a way for Scaramucci to appease his wife, who filed for divorce in 2017 when he took a top White House job without consulting her. (The couple later reconciled.) Scaramucci served as a member of the Trump administration for 10 days in July 2017 before he was fired following a series of gaffes. Scaramucci’s hedge fund, SkyBridge Capital, partnered this week with Westport Capital Partners for a $3 billion Opportunity Zone fund. [New York Post]
