Hollywood mogul Robert “Bob” Weinstein, brother of disgraced filmmaker Harvey Weinstein, recently sold his Greenwich, Connecticut, mansion for $17 million, three years after listing it, according to PropertyShark records.
Mr. Weinstein, 63, the executive producer of classic films such as “Good Will Hunting,” “The King’s Speech,” “The Lord of the Rings,” and “Pulp Fiction,” listed his Greenwich home in 2015 for $19.75 million, but settled for the near 15% price cut. A limited liability company in the name of “Glenmere 2” purchased the home on June 1.

The 13,000-square-foot home, located on Byram Shore Road, is situated over three acres of land and is comprised of six bedrooms and eight-and-a-half baths, according to the listing. The property boasts impressive water frontage along the Long Island Sound, a tidal estuary of the Atlantic.
The home backs into a 100-foot-long stone pier and sandy beach, giving way to panoramic views and boating and water sports.
The European-style home was built in 1916, but recently underwent “museum quality” renovations, according to the brokerage involved in the sale, Coldwell Banker.
Mr. Weinstein is unloading real estate left and right. Last month his 14-room duplex at The Beresford—a tony Upper West Side, Manhattan, co-op—entered contract, according to listing records.
The apartment, on the 16th and 17th floors, has six-and-a-half bathrooms, a staff room, wood-burning fireplaces and views of the park, according to the listing with Corcoran brokers Deborah Grubman, David M. Adler and Paul Albano, who did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Mr. Weinstein paid $20 million for the pad in 2004, property records show. His last asking price was $26.5 million, but it's unknown for how much the property will change hands.
Back in December, he sold a townhouse, also on the Upper West Side, for $15 million, the same amount he paid for the 6,608-square-foot house in 2009, property records show.
Mr. Weinstein’s brother, Harvey, was ostracized by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences last year amid multiple rape and sexual assault allegations. This June, he pleaded not guilty in New York to one count of first-degree rape, one count of third-degree rape, and one count of first-degree criminal sexual act.
A representative of the Weinstein Co. declined comment.
Variety first reported the Connecticut sale.
