Mr. Kupersmith, last heard from on these pages back in March, 2012 when his Martha’s Vineyard development was foreclosed on, has now lost his Conyers Farm residence at 2 Cowdray/ 11 Hurlingham Drive. The latter is scheduled to be sold at auction on August 25th, suggested bid $4.6 million, which is not a bad-looking price for 11 acres, 11,000 square feet of house in need of repair, horse stalls, pool, tennis court etc., This last sold in 1999 for $8,900,000 and was listed as recently as November, 2011, at $16,250,000. The fact that there are no interior shots in that 2011 listing suggests that the house needs a lot of work, but hey, it’s got Parkway and Central as its schools, so what else do you want for $4.6?
The auction description is here. It does a have a few pictures of the interior but they aren’t particularly enlightening. I’d go with the assumption that the place was built 27 years ago and in the past decade or so the owners have gone through divorce, economic disaster, bankruptcy, and endless litigation, so maintenance of this property was probably er, “deferred”. Bring your checkbook and your builder.
UPDATE: If you’re curious, the marriage notice for the unfortunate Mr. Kupersmith, 1991, is here.
