Ryan Murphy Is The Unseen Buyer Of Richard Gere’s Westchester Residence

Gimme Shelter can confirm that the real owner of Richard Gere’s Westchester residence is film director Ryan Murphy, formerly known as “the king of TV” and the most influential person in television. Gere’s Pound Ridge residence was listed for $28 million.

Murphy, who did not return calls at the time of publishing, paid $24.15 million for the residence. Ginnel Real Estate, the agents for the buyer and seller, declined to comment.

Murphy, a Tony and Emmy Award winner, is the producer of “Glee,” “Nip/Tuck,” “The Politician,” and a series about Gianni Versace’s murder. “Eat Pray Love” is one of his films.

The details include a library, a sunroom, a breakfast room, a chef’s country kitchen, and a balcony that looks out over a small lake with a beachfront and an island to sail to.

The estate also has guest houses, barns, and various hills for horseback riding, in addition to a secret sports field, a bathing area, and a pool area.

Gere purchased the first part of the ensemble in 1986 for $1.51 million. Even though the property is only 50 miles from New York City, it offers the finest tranquility and is surrounded by more than 4,300 acres of wilderness that have been conserved.

Murphy’s acquisition is another example of how this horseback riding area in Bedford, New York, operates.

The neighborhood, which has long been home to people like George Soros, Ralph Lauren, Martha Stewart, and Donald Trump, is beginning to resemble Hollywood East. Gimme recently disclosed that adjoining properties had just been bought by John Krasinski, Blake Lively, Matt Damon, Ryan Reynolds, and Emily Blunt.

Gere, the iconic “American Gigolo” and “Pretty Woman” star, paid $10.8 million for the Connecticut estate that belonged to Paul Simon and Edie Brickell. In 2002, Simon and Brickell invested $16.5 million in the property. Therefore, this is a big drop.
