Harvey Weinstein isn’t the only one who’s offloading some sizable real estate. Bob Weinstein, Harvey’s brother and former producing partner, recently sold his Greenwich, Connecticut, home for $17 million. But the house had been on the market for five years, according to the New York Post, long before his brother Harvey’s troubles ever become public knowledge. The nearly 13,000-square-foot Mediterranean villa sits on more than 3.25 acres, with just about 450 feet of shoreline off the Long Island Sound.
The home, which he first purchased back in 2000 for $16.4 million, features six bedrooms and seven full and three half bathrooms, with a stately driveway leading from a wrought-iron gate up to its front entrance, for maximum privacy. The interior of the home itself is elegant, with a combination living and entertaining space lined on one side by three sets of French doors with arched windows, which provide plenty of natural light in addition to breathtaking views of the Long Island Sound. The formal dining room similarly boasts two sets of French doors that open out onto the same stone terrace, which runs the full width of the mansion, with a fireplace at one end of the room. Elsewhere in the sprawling home, a slightly smaller family room provides a cozy nook for casual hangouts, and the kitchen is inviting, with an oversize marble-topped center island with rose-and-white cabinetry. A sizable breakfast nook sits just adjacent to the kitchen, with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the water.
On the second floor, a number of the spacious bedrooms feature their own fireplaces, as well as ample room for a little sitting area. Hardwood floors and French doors give the rooms an air of breezy luxury. Out back, the estate features impeccably maintained grassy grounds shaded by mature specimen trees, a tennis court, and a pergola, as well as a stone pier and a private beach.
It’s been a long time coming for the property to finally be purchased: Bob Weinstein initially listed the extravagant home for $32 million back in 2013, lowering it substantially with each passing year, until he had the asking price listed at $19.75 million by the fall of 2017. The younger brother of disgraced media mogul Harvey Weinstein previously put his Upper West Side townhouse up for sale last year for $29.5 million; he lowered that price to $26.5 million at the beginning of 2018, and it is currently in contract to be sold to an unnamed buyer for an unknown price. He also sold another Upper West Side townhouse last fall, for $17.9 million. His brother, meanwhile, has liquidated nearly all his property assets, including a house in the Hamptons, a bungalow in West Hollywood, two side-by-side Connecticut homes, and his West Village townhouse.
