Matt Lauer Unloading Southampton Beach Cottage for $4M

On Monday, 6sqft reported that “Today” anchor Matt Lauer had scooped upRichard Gere‘s Hamptons estate for an impressive $36 million. He’s wasted no time trying to unload his other properties on the island, as the Post reveals today that his Southampton beach cottage has hit the market for $4 million. Located at 67 Scotts Landing Road, the charming waterfront home sits on .75 acres within a community “where houses are generally passed on to the next generation,” according to the listing. This exclusive neighborhood offers tennis courts and access to a bay beach with a pavilion that puts on events.

The cottage is much simpler than Lauer’s new digs; it has three bedrooms and spans just 1,800 square feet. There’s beamed cathedral ceilings and a fireplace in the living room, which has an opening to the country kitchen. Off the kitchen is the dining room that features a lovely bay window.

The enclosed porch has glass doors that lead outside to a deck and down to the yard and 85 feet of bulkhead waterfront.

There also a charming detached garage that’s adjacent to the stone pathway that leads to the front door.

As 6sqft previously noted, “Lauer, who’s notorious for taking a private helicopter back and forth from the city to the Hamptons, also owns a 40-acre farm in Water Mill (where he recently had some beef with his neighbors).”
