Goldman chief pays $32M for Bridgehampton estate
Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein just purchased an estate on Ocean Road in Bridgehampton that was listed for $32.5 million, the New York Post reported.
The estate, which sits on some 7.4 acres, is composed of a seven-bedroom, 8,000-square-foot main house, a pool, tennis court and a large parcel with plenty of room to add a second structure.
The estate does not feature direct ocean access. “This purchase is all about the property,” a source told the Post. “There is no water at all. But Lloyd isn’t really an oceanfront person. He wanted a big property.”
The sellers are Ellen Chesler, a senior fellow with the Roosevelt Institute, and retired lawyer Matt Mallow. [NYP, 2nd item] —Christopher Cameron
