One of the most expensive homes in the Hamptons got a $30 million price cut last year — but it's still not selling. Take a look at the massive estate that's been on the market for almost 3 years.

The onetime most expensive home for sale in the Hamptons got a $US30 million price cut last year, but it still hasn’t sold.

First listed by its current owner for $US175 million in August 2017, the 42-acre Jule Pond estate in Southampton was the most expensive home for sale in the Hamptons at the time. Last spring, however, it got a $US30 million price chop.

Jule Pond, which was once part of a larger property called “Fordune,” was originally built for Henry Ford but has reportedly been owned by portfolio manager Brenda Earl since 2002.

Last year’s price cut means Jule Pond is no longer the most expensive home for sale in the Hamptons. Another Southampton property that’s listed for $US150 million now holds that title.

The current record for the most expensive home sold in the Hamptons was set by hedge funder Barry Rosenstein, who bought an East Hampton property for $US147 million in 2014.

At Jule Pond, the main house has 20,000 square feet of space, 12 bedrooms, and 12 bathrooms. The property also includes tennis and basketball courts as well as a greenhouse and about 1,286 linear feet of oceanfront. Cody and Zach Vichinsky of Bespoke Real Estate hold the listing.

Take a look inside the $US145 million estate.

Even after its $US30 million discount, the $US145 million price tag makes Jule Pond one of the most expensive homes for sale in the Hamptons, a community known for its multimillion-dollar homes.

While Jule Pond was once the most expensive home for sale in the Hamptons, the record for the most expensive home sold goes to another sprawling estate.
