LAUER SELLING HAMPTONS ESTATE – AGAIN

Matt Lauer is once again trying to sell his massive Hamptons mansion – according to the New York Post.

The disgraced former “Today” anchor has relisted Strongheart Manor, as the sprawling compound is known, for $43.99 million.

Last year, as Lauer finalized his divorce from Annette Roque, he put it on the market for almost the same price: about $44 million.

He bought the storied North Haven house from actor Richard Gere for $36.5 million in June 2016.

Appropriately for Gere, the 6.3-acre gated property is located on Actors Colony Road in an enclave north of Sag Harbor and across the Peconic River from Shelter Island.

The main mansion dates to 1902 but has been completely renovated. In sum, including two guesthouses, there are 12 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms and over 14,000 square feet.

“It’s the perfect COVID compound,” quipped one real estate insider.
