A waterfront home designed by architect Norman Jaffe and once owned by tennis great John McEnroe’s former Swedish rival Björn Borg has listed for $8.999 million, Newsday reported. The home in Sands Point, the latest notable property in the area to hit the market, was built in 1979 and has seven bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, a theater, a pool on a stone patio and a great room with towering windows looking out over Hempstead Bay. The two-acre property at 34 Forest Drive also has beach rights. Jaffe, who died in 1993, distinguished himself with his modern style and the Sands Point property now for sale still adheres to that aesthetic. Borg apparently lived in the home during the early 1980s with his ex-wife, retired Romanian tennis player Mariana Simionescu. Borg and McEnroe dueled across tennis courts throughout the late 1970s and early 1980s, although it wasn’t immediately clear if Borg lived in Sands Point during his battles with McEnroe, a New York native who sold his Southampton estate for $11.25 million in 2017. Yvonne “Bonnie” Doran and Dana Forbes of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty have the listing for Borg’s former Sands Point home. Ironically enough, earlier this year both brokers had another Sands Point listing for Antonio Palafox, a former Mexican tennis player who once coached McEnroe. [Newsday]
