Top 5 Stories of the Week: Calvin Klein Sells Yet Another $85 Million Hamptons Estate

Klein Property
The $85 million sale of Calvin Klein’s property in East Hampton Village gave another boost to the Community Preservation Fund in an already big year.

Calvin Klein has quietly sold an East Hampton Village oceanfront estate he has long owned for a combined $85 million.

Two separate parcels near Georgica Pond traded—the 6.8-acre parcel with the residence sold for $75 million while the vacant adjacent 1.63-acre property went for $10 million, according to Suffolk County deed transfers.
