The Ammon house at 59 Middle Lane—which was the subject of a 2012 documentary by the name of the home’s address, profiling twins Greg and Alexa Ammon—just sold for over $8 million, reports the Wall Street Journal.
The home listed for sale about six months ago for $12.7 million with Town & Country Real Estate agent and CEO, Judi Desiderio. According to the original report, Brown Harris Stevens represented the buyer.
After just a couple of months on the market, the home went down to $11.7 million, and then in mid-September the price was cut to $10,995,000, which is the most recent asking price on the home.
The documentary, 59 Middle Lane, tells the story of the now adult twins Greg and Alexa Ammon. Their millionaire father, Ted Ammon, was murdered and found in the upstairs bedroom of the East Hampton home. Fingers were pointed at his wife and the man she was having an affair with in the middle of their divorce. At the time, the siblings were just 10 years old.
In 2011, they decide to reconcile their past. They visit the East Hampton home where the events took place, and they go to Ukraine together to visit the orphanage where they were adopted and the street where their birth mother lived.
The 7,000-square-foot English Manor style home has six bedrooms, six and a half bathrooms, a solarium, and a library. On the 2.2 acres of land there is a three-car garage, heated pool, and manicured gardens.
