The last time we took a look at this John Laffey-designed eight-bedroom it was rumored that American Idol judge and former resident of the block Jennifer Lopez was in talks to buy it. It was then reported that?not so fast!?she was still checking out other properties in the area (notably this Peter Cook number in East Hampton). Now, about six months after all the initial hullabaloo, the 14,000 sq. ft. megamanse is listed as "In Contract" on HREO. Does this mean the former fly girl has decided to finally go ahead with the purchase? We really can't say at this point, but we'll keep digging. In the meantime, if you've got any intel you feel like sharing about the soon-to-be-owner, shoot us an Email. Anonymity is guaranteed.
