Felix Sater, a real estate developer with ties to President Donald Trump, has sold his home in Sands Point, NY. Initially listed in 2017 for just under $2.5 million, the Long Island home closed for $2.03 million earlier this month, according to property records.
Built in 1950, the ranch house with a pool on almost 2 bucolic acres was purchased in 2004 for $1.75 million.
The four-bedroom, 3.5-bath home features an enclosed backyard with everything you need to spend the summer outside: bluestone patio, fire pit, gardens, a gazebo, and grassy lawns.
The updated 3,600-square-foot interior includes a large eat-in kitchen, spacious living room that looks out to the patio, a formal dining room, a master suite with walk-in closet, and an office. Other perks include smart home technology and high-tech security.
If you’ve been following special counsel Robert Mueller‘s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, you’ll know that Sater and former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen reportedly teamed up to work on a Trump Tower Moscow deal.
The “international man of mystery,” who was born in Russia and grew up in Brooklyn, previously worked on Trump Soho as well as other real estate projects with Trump. The 52-year-old is also known for having links to organized crime and providing intelligence to help track down Osama Bin Laden.
