Robert Holmes, the co-founder and former president of video game maker Acclaim Entertainment, has again cut the price of his waterfront mansion in Northport to $5.75 million, according to a listing from Cold Spring Harbor-based Lucky to Live Here Realty. The home at 205 Asharoken Avenue had hit the market in 2017 with a nearly $8 million ask, according to a story at the time from Long Island Business News. The listing price was subsequently cut to $6.5 million, Patch reported earlier this year. The 1,300-square-foot home, built in 1998, has six bedrooms, seven-and-a-half bathrooms, six fireplaces, a sauna and an indoor pool. The 4.2-acre property on Northport Bay also includes an outdoor pool, tennis court and a boat house. Elena D.Agostino and Joyce Mennella of Lucky to Live Here Realty have the listing. Holmes and Greg Fischbach founded Acclaim, known for producing iconic video games like “Mortal Kombat,” “NBA Jam” and others, in an Oyster Bay storefront in 1987. The company’s annual revenues climbed to $500 million per year before it closed its doors in 2004[Lucky to Live Here Realty]
