Big sale in Conyers

16 Hurlingham Drive

16 Hurlingham Drive

16 Hurlingham Drive, $11.9 million. Once owned by Mets (? – Yankee?) pitcher David Cone, it was pretty bedraggled when I last saw it, but still sold for $12.4 million in 2007. I assume the buyer died or did some complicated estate planning because after being listed for $12.950 million it was pulled for a year, then reappeared as owned by Bard College, and this sale resulted. Fantastic lake front property, but I’d scrape the house itself.

    It looks pretty damn awesome from the outside…..

    Btw, Cuban agents are running Venezuela – inflicting terror.

    The Castro Brothers run the darkest, most repressive regime in the Americas…. I’m sure our high school band program’s hard cash will be put to good use.

    Wasn’t the most recent owner Soros’s ex wife?

    Was owned by David Cone, then a guy that worked for Eddy Lampert and moved out to Chicago, then Soros’ ex. It is a mess of a house (although it does look really good on the outside.) Really bad indoor pool, very poor access to the rear property/ lake, etc etc.

    • Agreed – scrape it, Danno

        Dude –
        David Cone was a GREAT pitcher, who played for both the Mets and the Yankees, amongst other teams. While with the Yankees he pitched a perfect game!! He is also the only player to win 20 games for both the Mets and the Yankees. He once struck out 19 batters in one game, and struck out the side on nine pitches!!

        But. BUT!! Best of all he was a WILD MAN!! He once, allegedly, lured three girls near the Mets bullpen to watch him stroke his baseball bat!! WHILE THE GAME WAS GOING ON!! No shit. You can look it up!!

        I never knew he lived in Greenwich. I would have liked to pal out with him one night.
        Your Pal,
        Walt

        • I think his wife designed the house. If her skills as a wife equalled her abilities as an architect, they’re probably divorced.
          UPDATE: Nope, still married, at least as of 2011.

    When I lived in Manhattan, David and his wife lived in our building. I would often see him eating cheeseburgers and a coke at the corner diner. I was trapped in the elevator one time with his wife. She was busy on the phone rescheduling a Botox injection while we were stuck.
