Pity Lloyd Blankfein, CEO and Chairman of Goldman Sachs, who has had to drop the asking price of one of the houses he owns on the Hamptons by $4 million, The Real Deal reports, from $17 million to $13 million.
He’s also switched brokers, from Sotheby’s International Realty to the Corcoran Group. Blankfein built the 6,500 square foot Sagaponack home at 121 Parsonage Lane in 2000, but has been trying to get rid of it since he and his wife Laura bought an even larger, $32.5 million property in Bridgehampton. (The couple mostly live in their $25.7 million Manhattan penthouse, at 15 Central Park West.)
Last spring, a contractor doing construction work on Blankfein’s new house sued the investment banker after he was knocked off a scaffolding, the New York Daily News reported. The next hearing in that case is set for March 9.
