Ryan Murphy bought Richard Gere’s New York estate for $24 million

Filmmaker Ryan Murphy — once dubbed the most powerful man on television and known as “the king of TV” — is the secret buyer of Richard Gere’s Westchester estate, Gimme Shelter can exclusively reveal.

Gere’s Pound Ridge compound first hit the market last year for $28 million.

Murphy, who did not call back at press time, paid $24.15 million for the property.

Ginnel Real Estate, which represented the buyer and seller, declined to comment.

Emmy and Tony Award winner Murphy has made shows such as ‘Glee’, ‘Nip/Tuck’ and ‘The Politician’, as well as a series about the murder of Gianni Versace. His films include ‘Eat Pray Love’.

The 49-acre estate is anchored by a three-story, 11,658-square-foot colonial mansion with eight bedrooms and 10 bathrooms.

Details include a library, conservatory, breakfast room, a chef’s country kitchen, and a formal living room with a floor-to-ceiling fireplace – along with a deck that overlooks a private lake with a sandy beach and island to root. until.

The property also features guest houses, stables and plenty of hills for horse riding, along with a hidden football pitch, swimming pool and pool house.

Gere bought the first lot in the assembly in 1986 for $1.51 million. Just 80 miles from New York City, the property is buffered by over 4,300 acres of protected land for extreme privacy.

The Murphy purchase is another example of how this horse country around Bedford, New York — long home to Donald Trump, Martha Stewart, Ralph Lauren and George Soros — is becoming a sort of Hollywood East. Matt Damon recently bought into the area, as Gimme exclusively reported, as well as Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, and Emily Blunt and John Krasinski.

Gere, who was the original star of “American Gigolo” and “Pretty Woman,” has since purchased Paul Simon and Edie Brickell’s Connecticut estate for $10.8 million. (That’s much less what Simon and Brickell paid for the property — $16.5 million — in 2002.)
