Pizza Prince Anthony Sbarro Unloads His Southampton Abode for $24M
Anthony Sbarro, heir to the Sbarro pizza empire, finally sold his 15,700 square-foot Southampton home after watching it languish on the market for over a year.
According to Curbed, the professional foodie purchased the property in 2014 for $10.26 million and built the stunning shingle-style abode from the ground up. The house was designed by renowned Hamptons architect Francis Fleetwood and was one of his last projects before passing away in May 2015, making this structure that much more special.
With the house offering to come fully furnished, all the lucky new owner has to do is get the keys. Bold designs catch your eye in every room with whimsical pops of color and stylish light fixtures. Achille Salvagni is the interior designer responsible for the home’s crisp and vibrant aesthetic.
Sbarro had planned to live in the customized nine-bedroom home, but a waterfront Hamptons spread caught his eye, leading him to list his 101 Pheasant Lane estate last year and make residence elsewhere.
The Murray Compound shingle palace was first listed in July 2016 for $32 million, but by July of this year the price dropped to $26.95 million. The new owner walked away with even more of a discount with the price most recently listed as $24 million.
Luxurious features welcome the buyer, including a 60-foot-by-30-foot heated gunite pool, sunken all-weather tennis court, wine cellar, home theater, dance studio and an elevator. Private beach access sweetens the deal even more.
