Talent agent Sandy Gallin's sprawling 14-acre Bridgehampton estate, known as "Serenity," just closed for $17.5 million, confirms Bill Williams, vice president of Sotheby's International Realty. The buyers, Matt Coffin, who made millions from lowerymybills.com, and wife, Natasha Esch, a former president of Wilhelmina Models, were brought in by Sotheby's broker Rylan Jacka.
Curbed Hamptons first broke the news.
On the market since 2009 and originally listed for $32 million, the 6,500-square-foot, seven-bedroom, eight-bath home was last listed for $19.995 million in a co-exclusive deal with Linda Haugevik of Saunders & Associates and Susan and Matthew Breitenbach of The Corcoran Group.
The estate is made up of three lots Gallin bought in 2001 for less than $6 million. According to published reports, he had the home on the market for $21 million in 2004.
Coffin and Esch will have to share their new digs with the property's existing residents: The wildlife on the sprawling homestead includes a family of swans.
