YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Yesterday afternoon Your Mama received a call from Marlene Dietrich, one of our friends deep inside the financial world, who was breathless with excitement to tell us that Lloyd Blankfein put his Sagaponack mansion on the market for nearly $14,000,000.
Now, all the children will recognize Mister Blankfein's name as the CEO of Goldman Sachs that raked in $53,000,000 in earnings last year and has recently been on a real estate shopping spree. First he paid $27,000,000 for a gargantuan apartment on the Upper West Side.
Then he went shopping for a new summer house in the Hamptons where he has recently gone to contract to purchase the tremendous Southampton estate "Old Trees" for the dizzying sum of $41,000,000. Lawhd babies, Your Mama has to sit down just to consider that much money. Please keep in mind, this 20,000 square foot, 13 bedroom shingled "cottage" on 10.6 acres will likely only be used weekends for 3-5 months of the year.
So now that the purchase of "Old Trees" is going to go through**, Mister Blankfein and his missy Laura have put their Parsonage Lane house on the market. As of this morning, the listing agents at Corcoran, uber agent Susan Brietenbach and her sonny boy Matthew, have only provided a couple crappy photos. But when they get up something nice of the interior, we'll be sure to holler at the children.
The couple purchased the lot on Parsonage Lane in 1995 and built the house in 2001. It may have nearly 7,000 square feet and a pool and sunken tennis court, but it's a pretty run of the mill house in the Hamptons. But it is in easy breezy quasi rural Sagaponack, which has the distinction of being one of the most expensive zip codes in the country. The property also happens to be very near one of Your Mama and the Dr. Cooters' favorite beaches in the Hamptons, a little used stretch of sand not far from Ira Rennert's freakishly large and obscene 100,000 square foot ocean front summer house called "Fair Field" with it's 29 bedrooms, 39 bathrooms and 91 foot long dining room. Please, that's just unnecessary.
Anyhoo, we can't comment much on Mister Blankfein's Sagaponack set up until we see more photos. So Ms. Breitenbach, be sure to give us a shout when you get that virtual tour up.
**As it turns out Mister and Missus Blankfein backed out of buying Old Trees, which was later bought by property mad hedge hog John Paulson.
