The Fall Of The House(s) Of Harvey Weinstein

Yesterday, Harvey Weinstein went down to Manhattan Criminal Court, and was arrested on sexual assault charges.

Soon, several of his former Westport homes will go down too.

Applications to demolish the properties at 26 and 28 Beachside Avenue — adjacent to Burying Hill Beach — have been filed with the town.

The 8,896-square foot home, and 2 other houses, were sold in February to Andrew Bentley, for $16 million. He already owns several other properties on Beachside.

In 2012, Weinstein’s main house was the site of a fundraiser for the re-election of President Obama. Among the guests joining the president at the $38,500-per-person event: Anne Hathaway, Aaron Sorkin, Anna Wintour, Joanne Woodward, Jerry Springer and Governor Malloy.

Bentley told “06880”: “We have engaged the Westport-based, world-class architectural firm of Roger Ferris + Partners to design a house for the property. With their local roots and global vision, we are confident they will produce something that is right for the location.”

    It should be noted that all of the celebrities mentioned in the article knew what a pig and serial abuser of Women he wa, but money outweighed morality!

  2. That was the place where SMOKE rehearsed in the late 1960’s, thanks to Mark Sollin (our intrepid drummer) and his patient parents!!!

    Is the main house set to be demolished or just the 2 run down houses down the driveway on the left before you get to the main house? Also. Wonder why a condition of his release was to be able to stay in Connecticut when he sold all his properties.

    I wonder what Bentley is up to… looks like he owns nearly $40m of property already in the area… this new purchase is not next to the existing though.
