Former Real Housewives of New York City cast member Kelly Bensimon has sold her East Hampton home – but the sale came with a gigantic price cut.

Originally listed for $12 million, the two-story mansion, which includes five bedrooms, three fireplaces, a heated pool and an artist’s studio, sold last week for $5.76 million, the New York Daily News reports.

Bensimon, 44, bought the house in the 1980s.

“She wasn’t sure she really wanted to sell the house, so we put it on [sale] for an absurd amount of money. We rented it for great prices two summers in a row. She just felt now was the right time to sell . . . it’s time to move on,” Enzo Morabito, who represented Bensimon in the sale, told the Daily News.

The rustic property spans 1.2 acres, with interior space totaling some 5,800 square feet.

Other highlights include a pond, “oversized” bonus guest room, powder room, a master suite with a fireplace and private terrace and ample entertaining space.

Bensimon, who was on The Real Housewives of New York City from Seasons 2 to 4, released a lifestyle book, I Can Make You Hot, earlier this year.
