An oceanfront estate in East Hampton Village quietly sold last month for $59.5 million in an off-market deal.

According to The Real Estate Report Inc., 70 Further Lane sold on February 5. However, there is no listing to be found for the 3-acre property, which includes a large shingled home, an oceanside pool, a tennis court and a basketball court, and no agency has stepped forward to take credit for the sale.

The owner was Jim Chanos, a hedge fund manager who has had great success in short sales. He is the president and founder of Kynikos Associates, and known for predicting the fall of Enron in 2001. Just last year, he successfully shorted troubled companies Luckin Coffee and Wirecard AG.

At 70 Further Lane, Mr. Chanos hosted annual parties to enjoy Fourth of July fireworks and also fundraisers. A July 2010 invitation states that Mr. Chanos and his then-wife, Amy Chanos, hosted a political fundraiser there for Andrew Cuomo’s first bid for governor. They also hosted at least one charitable fundraiser there for Miracle House.

At nearly $60 million, 70 Further Lane is the biggest Hamptons real estate transaction of 2021 to date.

The buyer’s identity is shielded by a limited liability company.

New State Law Protects Homeowners From Squatters

Legislation aimed at weakening so-called squatters’ rights was enacted as part of the New York State budget in April and became effective immediately. The legislation identifies the term “squatter” as one who enters onto a property or building without title, right, or permission, and therefore is not subject to the same rights and protections of lawful tenants, occupants or owners. This also makes it clear that squatters do not get any rights or protections after 30 days of occupancy. It has been designed to make it easier in some cases for police to intervene when someone enters a home without ... 23 May 2024 by Joseph Finora
