If You've Got $65 Million And A Robber Barron Itch To Scratch, This Midtown Mansion's Got Your Name Written All Over It

Sleep Where Erin Callan Hath Slept
If Joe Gregory's Lloyd Harbor manse isn't your style, or the $22 million asking price seems excessive for a place with only 8.5 baths, take a moment to consider the former Lehman Brothers CFO's East Hamptons pad. Callan is asking $3.95 million for the place, where she holed up following the financial crisis and where love blossomed with firefighter Anthony Montella, who she married last January. For you're money you'll get 7 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, 5,000 square feet, 2 acres, a heated gunite pool, a barn, garden vineyards, "majestic trees," and a little piece of history.

Sleep Where Dan Loeb Hath Slept
The Third Point founder is reportedly looking for a buyer for his 10,674-square-foot penthouse at 15 Central Park West. If that sounds like something you'd be interested in, people hear that Loeb "wants $100 million," which would represent a 122.22% return (DL and his wife bought the place for $45 million in 2008). While perhaps a tad pricey, consider that back in November, Sandy Weill was able to get $88 million for his 15CPW apartment, a relative dump at 6,744-square-feet.* As for the Loebs, they are apparently "in search of something larger," if you've got any leads. It seems pretty obvious that a fellow hedge fund manager with a 20,000 square foot UES mansion** and a liquidity problem might want to get in touch but we'll let him come to that in his own time.
