If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. At least, that’s Matt Lauer’s plan for selling his massive Hamptons estate on the Peconic River.

The disgraced former “Today” show host has attempted to unload his home in North Haven on and off for years. He has now put it back on the market with a price of $44 million, according to the New York Post.

The home covers almost 14,000 square feet and sits on 6.3 acres. Strongheart Manor, the nickname of the main home, was built in 1902 and has been brought up to date.

Features of the gated property include fireplaces, a screened-in porch, two guest houses and a built-in tea house. There is also a waterfront pool, a gym and a basketball court.

Lauer has made several attempts to sell the 12-bedroom, 12-bathroom estate. He first listed it in June 2019 for $44.8 million, and tried again the fall of that year at $44 million.

After pulling the home from the market, Lauer surfaced it again in September 2020, but again failed to find a buyer despite the East End market being as hot as it has ever been.

The estate does have a history of needing price adjustments. Richard Gere, the owner before Lauer, asked $65 million when he decided to sell the place. Property records show that Lauer ultimately paid $36.5 million.
