Vince Camuto, who co-founded Nine West, purchased the estate with his wife for $35 million in 2005, according to WWD.


They undertook a five-year renovation.

The couple previously listed it for $100 million in 2008.

The house was originally built in 1887 and previously served as a convent for the Sisters of St. Dominic of Amityville.

The main house is 20,000 square feet.


The entrance hall, shown here, has two massive bronze doors and sconces that date back to 1890.

"It’s one of the most iconic properties, not only in the Hamptons but probably in the country if not in the world," Vichinsky said.
