Corey Kupersmith’s former Cowdray Road auction coming up August 25th

Here’s how to bid – basically, you must place your bid before hand and the three highest bidders will be invited to duke it out on the 25th.

Cheytac 408-M200

Cheytac 408-M200

We’ve written about Kupersmith before, most recently just this past July. In response to that article I received this interesting email. Apparently there was – is- more to Mr. Kupersmith than just a rapacious, failed real estate developer.

Hi Chris:

I was one of Corey’s partners for about five years when I founded Cheytac * and my other partners voted him in as an additional partner.  He and his criminal gang of hangers on from NYC were interesting fellows.
From never paying their taxes to outright defrauding [or attempting to] their partners, they were the gang that couldn’t shoot straight, literally.
When the little prince got involved with  Cheytac he determined that we didn’t need process control on weapons manufacturing…..  We could discuss that for hours….  We have enough damaged clients out there from that.
He also tried out various fully automatic weapons in Arco, ID and once shot a School Bus, fortunately coming back empty, no kids…….  I guess there is a God some where.
Crocco died under suspicious circumstances [no mention of that in Keith Crocco’s obituary – it was a motorcycle accident- Keith C rear-ended an SUV – Ed] after Corey stated that he was going to send him to his grave as he didn’t trust him any more…..  Most of the Greenwich cops partied at his Cowdray mansion or the Jupiter FL mansion…..
Real Estate?  Chris, you have barely scratched the tip of the iceberg…..
Interesting about the GPD partying with the man, here in Greenwich and in Florida. Any readers want to contribute to that angle?
UPDATE: Googling around, I found this mention of Kupersmith’s involvement with Jamison International. “In 2003 Marc Jamison teamed with the owner of Greenwich Ballistics, Corey Kupersmith, who had recently acquired Cheyenne Tactical (CheyTac USA).”
Patent suit brought by Greenwich Ballistics against Jamison bankrupted Jamison (or it shut down as the result of the expenses of defending against the suit). Here’s the original complaint.

    A Greenwich, Conn., home is going to auction in August with a starting bid of $4.6 million.

    The 11,000-square-foot Colonial-style home has six bedrooms, seven full bathrooms and two half-baths. It includes a finished basement with a wine cellar, a rec room with a wet bar, four fireplaces, oak floors and a wood-paneled library. The 13-acre property has a swimming pool with a spa and cabana, a 20-stall barn with a four-apartment guesthouse, an outdoor riding arena, a tennis court and a three-car garage.

    The home is in Conyers Farm, a gated community with minimum lot sizes of 10 acres and where other homeowners have included Justin Timberlake, Ivan Lendl and Ron Howard. The community has riding paths, 24-hour security, a polo field and a 100-acre lake.

    The home’s current owner is People’s United Bank, which foreclosed on the property in December 2012. Developer Corey Kupersmith had purchased the home in 1999 for $8.9 million, according to Misha Haghani, principal of Paramount Realty U.S.A., which is running the auction. In October 2010 Mr. Kupersmith listed the property for $16.25 million and he removed the listing one year later.

    The auction will take place Aug. 25.

    It’s Cowdray (not cowdrey) Park Drive
    The estate is probably on the New York side judging by its lack of ability to sell. (Taxes on NY side typically swing north of 250k for 10+ acres up there)

    Ivan Lendl left Conyers years ago, Ron still lives across the lake on the NY side, and the rumor about JT being there was just that, a rumor.

    It’s too bad Peter Brant wasn’t a golfer, this would be a much nicer plot of land for Greenwich’s Nuevo Rich to tee it up…
    Besides, Stanwich needs some competition…
    Their new greens don’t last beyond the 3rd week of June, yet the members shit still doesn’t stink.

    BigMike: aside from the Brant sisters – I mean, siblings – there aren’t enough like-minded boys in the neighborhood for JT to play with. Also, it’s tough to “keep it on the DL” in a town this size.
