The Wall Street Journal’s Private Properties column reports the “Today” show’s Matt Lauer has bought a home in The Hamptons “for its full asking price of $2.15 million.”
The 1,500-square-foot Cape Cod was on the market for about three months before Mr. Lauer made his offer. Set on about 0.7 acres, the home has three bedrooms, two baths, a country kitchen and wraparound deck overlooking the lawn and a large pond connected to Little Peconic Bay. The property, which also features a boat dock, includes 85 feet of pond frontage.
Also in the column, news that the widow of the late “60 Minutes” correspondent Ed Bradley has sold her Manhattan apartment “for close to its $6.995 million asking price.” Bradley bought the apartment in the 1970s. The Journal reports Patricia Blanchet-Bradley is moving to another apartment in the same Central Park West building.
