‘Real Housewives of New York’ Star Kelly Bensimon Sells Hamptons Home for Half the Asking Price: Take a Look Inside (PHOTOS)
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.
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.
