Matt Lauer Buys Richard Gere’s Hamptons Estate for $36.5 Million

The front façade of Strongheart Manor.Matt Lauer’s most recent addition to his Hamptons real estate repertoire (he already owns an equestrian facility called Bright Side Farm in Water Mill) is Strongheart Manor, a 6.3 acre spread in North Haven.  The property was first listed by former owner Richard Gere in 2013 for $65 million, but was picked up by Matt Lauer for $36.5 million last month, reports The New York Post.

Nestled on a tranquil waterfront property in North Haven, just minutes from the vibrant village of Sag Harbor, Strongheart Manor’s 6+ acres include two guesthouses, an island-style tea house, a private dock, tennis court and 300 ft of private waterfront.

The 14,000-square-foot main residence has been recently updated and now boasts energy-efficient upgrades along with plenty of entertaining space, a library, exercise room, finished basement and 12 bedrooms and bathrooms.  A full-length screened in porch completes the Lauers’ new Hamptons getaway.
