Matt Lauer buys Richard Gere’s $36M Hamptons compound
Sources told us the “Today” anchor scooped up the North Haven estate, dubbed Strongheart Manor, for $36.5 million.
The 6.2-acre property includes a waterfront pool, basketball court, 12 bedrooms and bathrooms, a waterfront pond with a bridge and an “island inspired tea house.”
Lauer will be selling off a Sag Harbor home and a Hamptons cottage, said a source, but will be keeping his 40-acre Bright Side Farm in Water Mill, where he recently gained town approval to plant shrubs after neighbors tried to block the move.
Gere’s home was listed in 2013 with an original asking price of $65 million.
