No coffee for Alec Baldwin quite yet, as the actor still can’t close on his Hamptons house and has cut its asking price for a second time.
The actor shaved the listing price of the home at 335 Town Lane in Amagansett down to $22.5 million, the New York Post reported. It marks a reduction of $2.4 million from only two months ago. Baldwin first listed the estate in September for $29 million.
The Amityville native purchased the property in 1996 for $1.7 million and it has remained of use to him, serving as his primary residence during the pandemic. The 10,000-square-foot home has four bedrooms and seven bathrooms. The estate spans 10 acres and overlooks a preserve.
The two-story house has a movie theater — so the kids can watch “Boss Baby” on an infinite loop — a wood–paneled library and a wine tasting room. Outside, there’s a pavilion with a fireplace, a pool and a fenced vegetable garden. A buyer also has the ability and space to build a horse stable.
Saunders & Associates’ Scott Bradley and Michael Cinque share the listing.
Baldwin has been itching to sneak away from the bright lights of his native New York, quietly shopping his penthouse in Greenwich Village on East 10th Street. Last year, Baldwin and his wife, Hilaria, sold their lake house upstate for $530,000.
The simple life may be in the future for the couple, who bought a 55-acre farm in Arlington, Vermont, for $1.7 million. The rural setting could be a departure from the lifestyle expected from a famous 64-year-old actor who’s starred in numerous TV shows and films, including his iconic role as Blake, a real estate sales trainer in 1992’s “Glengarry Glen Ross.”
But Baldwin has been under scrutiny for the fatal 2021 shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of “Rust.” He settled a wrongful death lawsuit from Hutchins’ family but is still facing criminal charges, although last month the involuntary manslaughter charges were downgraded.
The film is still looking to resume production.
