Former NBC anchor Matt Lauer seems to be having trouble selling his “spare” Sag Harbor house–one of three Hamptons homes he owns with his likely soon-to-be ex-wife Annette Roque–which the disgraced ex-“Today Show” co-host is currently listing at $12.75 million, according to the Observer. Lauer first listed the 25-acre estate at 2301 Deerfield Road for $18 million in July of 2016. The asking price was shaved by $1 million that September, and then again in June 2017 to $14.9 million. The 8,000-square-foot, six-bedroom shingle-style house comes with a huge gunite pool and pool house, tennis court and gorgeous landscaped grounds and was designed by architect Daniel Romualdez with interiors by Muriel Brandolini; but the answer still seems to be no, thanks.
Not that Lauer has taken that for an answer before, so he’s trying again at the lower price. The house was designed to resemble a New England shingled cape, with six bedrooms and six-and-a-half baths. Though there might not be much “serenity in Sag Harbor” (as the listing says) at the moment, a picture-perfect, stylish renovation makes for a stunning presentation.
Brandolini infused the space with bold colors and patterns and classic mid-century furniture. Special touches include hand-painted wallpaper in the dining room, barn beams in the great room, a myriad of unique lighting fixtures, and at least four grand fireplaces.
The lawns and gardens were designed by Miranda Brooks. The outdoor terraces and patios are perfect for entertaining delusions.
Even if he manages to move the Sag Harbor property, he’ll still have the house in North Haven that he and his wife purchased from Richard Gere for $36 million in 2016. The fallen anchor listed a Southampton beach cottage for $4 million back in 2016, and also owns a 40-acre Water Mill horse farm known as Bright Side Farm.
