Former Trump White House Communications Director Scaramucci Buys In Water Mill

Add another name to the list of former Trump campaign and administration officials who have chosen to make the Hamptons their home. And what a name it is: the Mooch. Anthony Scaramucci and his wife, Deidre Ball, are newly minted residents of Water Mill with the purchase of 30 Lawrence Court. Though the final sales price has not been reported, according to the New York Post the ask on the Farrell Building Company new construction was $7,495,000.

The man who was oh so briefly the White House communications director joins former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, former national security official K.T. McFarland, and Wilbur Ross (who still has his job as commerce secretary) as homeowners on eastern Long Island. Mr. Scaramucci may be looking for a less volatile life after a tumultuous 2017. President Donald Trump had appointed the New Yorker as his communications director, but within a few weeks he was banished. To add insult to injury, in July, his wife, who was nine months pregnant, filed for divorce. However, she and the Mooch made up, and their second-chance gift to themselves is the Water Mill manse.

The 8,300-square-foot, 8-bedroom house on a 0.92-acre waterfront parcel includes such amenities as a gym, sauna, media room, pool, and a great room with fireplace. It overlooks a reserve and also the Water Mill property of the actor and author Alan Alda, which could be politically awkward because of the conservative-liberal dynamic.
