The most expensive single-family home sale in the Hamptons — and one of the largest in the US, for that matter — is underway, The Post has learned exclusively.
The massive, 42-acre compound at 90 Jule Pond in Southampton is now in contract — with an asking price of $145 million.
The property was originally asking $175 million, back in 2017.
This is “the most expensive sale in the history of the Hamptons,” Bespoke, a brokerage firm that shares the listing with Sotheby’s, announced on social media.
A combination of multiple adjacent properties had previously sold for $147 million. But Bespoke’s owners Zach and Cody Vichinsky told The Post that this is the largest payout for a single home.
They added that the buyer is from an “American real estate family” that is not based in New York.
“It was a relatively quick deal,” Zach Vichinsky said. “This was a passion driven purchase for a trophy property. The buyer has an appreciation of the unique nature of the property. The entire recipe was something that resonated with them.”
The seller is Brenda Earl, a former partner at Zweig-Dimenna, who paid around $22 million for it in 2002, as The Post originally reported.
The previous record was set by activist investor Barry Rosenstein, who paid $147 million for adjacent properties spread across 18 acres on Further Lane back in 2014, as we revealed exclusively.
The Jule Pond mansion comes with a sweeping staircase and a 48-foot-long living room with French parquet floors. Details include high-molded ceilings and Italian marble fireplaces.
The manor dates to 1957 and was built by Henry Ford’s grandson, and known as Fordune. It also features a 12-bedroom main house, a pool and tennis and basketball courts.
“It claims to be oceanfront but it is really set back from the water,” a top broker told The Post.
The deal dwarfs the top pandemic-era trades in the hot Hamptons real estate market, where hedge fund manager Ken Griffin bought Calvin Klein’s Southampton oceanfront castle estate, at 650 Meadow Lane, for $84.4 million.
