EAST HAMPTON, LONG ISLAND — The mansion in East Hampton where wealthy financier Ted Ammon was murdered in 2001 has reportedly sold for over $8 million.
Twins Greg and Alexa Ammon were children when Ammon, their adoptive father, was bludgeoned to death in the home by his estranged wife Generosa’s lover Danny Pelosi.
The property was originally put on the market a year ago for $12.7 million. The price was dropped to $10,995,000 — and then eventually sold for somewhere “in the mid 8s,” listing agent Judi Desiderio told the Wall Street Journal. “Fifty percent of people would rule it out because of the history,” she said.
Pelosi denied having anything to do with the murder. He and Generosa married a year after Ammon’s death, and she died of cancer in 2003.
Pelosi was convicted of Ammon’s murder, and is currently serving 25 years to life. He appealed his conviction in 2015 but, according to court documents, the conviction was affirmed.
Since Ammon’s grisly death, the twins had mainly rented out the house in the summer. It reportedly recently fetched $250,000 for the season.
Desiderio said that the new owners, who have not been named, have not decided whether to renovate the home or tear it down and rebuild.
