Late Designer Vince Camuto’s Hamptons Estate Fetches $49 Million

Tuesday 07:01 GMT

The 20,000-square-foot mansion, known as Villa Maria, was owned by the late fashion designer Vince Camuto, who died in 2015, and Louise, his wife and business partner.

The whole estate was recently listed for $72 million, according to Harald Grant of Sotheby’s International Realty, the agent who represented the buyer in the $36 million deal. “The luxury market in the Hamptons had gone through this two- or three-year period where sellers priced at numbers that had no relationship to reality,” said appraiser Jonathan Miller, who tracks sales in the area.
