The move comes as the disgraced former television host finalizes his divorce with Annette Roque, the New York Post reported. The former couple picked up the 12-bedroom, 12-bathroom home known as Strongheart Manor three years ago after Gere, who was going through his own divorce at the time, cut the price of the property from its initial $65 million ask in 2013.

An anonymous East End broker told the Post that drones have been circling the mansion at 26 Actors Colony Road in North Haven and photographers have been taking its picture in preparation for it hitting the market. The home is expected to list for about $44 million, according to the Post.

Built in 1902 and fully renovated, Strongheart Manor has 300 feet of frontage on Peconic Bay and includes a waterfront pool, deepwater private dock, basketball court, gym, tea house and a pair of guest houses. After Lauer and Roque purchased the estate, they unloaded an 1,800-square-foot home in Southampton for $3.5 million.

Lauer’s split with Roque comes after his termination from NBC in late 2017 amid accusations of sexual misconduct. The allegations led Lauer to run into trouble in New Zealand, where local authorities eventually allowed him to retain ownership of a farm known as Hunter Valley Station.

Last year Lauer sold an Upper East Side co-op for a little more than $7 million and slashed the price of another Sag Harbor property at 2301 Deerfield Road to $12.75 million. The latter home, located on a 25-acre estate that Lauer and his ex-wife put on the market for $18 million in 2016, no longer appears to be on the market.
