Springsteen-approved stables in Hamptons asking $35M

Springsteen’s barn to run

Champion equestrians Jessica Springsteen (28-year-old daughter of rocker Bruce Springsteen) and Jennifer Gates (23-year-old daughter of billionaire Bill Gates) have both ridden at Campbell Stables in Bridgehampton, according to brokers. Now the luxe equestrian facility — named for late owner Bob Campbell, a fashion legend in the shoe industry — is on the market for $35 million, slashed from its original 2017 ask of $40 million. Perhaps Jessica, a 2020 Olympics hopeful, will snag it for herself? (Jennifer already has her own $16 million New York horse farm, as we previously reported.) The stables sit on 17.8 acres (south of the highway, on West Pond Drive) and come with an adjacent 2.6 acre agricultural reserve. The compound boasts 27 stalls, 14 paddocks, three outdoor rings with viewing stands, and a 15,000-square-foot indoor ring with a second-floor viewing lounge, along with staff quarters. The sale includes approved plans for a 12,000-square-foot home on the site, with a pool and tennis courts — not to mention enough space to host your own polo matches. The listing brokers are Sara Burack and James Giugliano of Nest Seekers International.

Broadway king’s new UWS stage

Tony-winning Broadway producer Andrew Martin Weber (who is reviving “Caroline, or Change”) just bought a penthouse at 480 Park Ave. so that he can walk across Central Park to the Met Opera, spies tell Gimme. The four-bedroom unit, in an Emery Roth-designed prewar building, was last asking $6.7 million — down from its 2018 ask of $7.8 million.The duplex comes with a terrace, a wood-burning fireplace, a chef’s kitchen and a library. The listing brokers were Clayton Orrigo, Kirsten Jordan, Bobby O. Larrea and Stephen Ferrara of Compass. Michael Bolla, of Sotheby’s International Realty, repped Weber. Meanwhile, Weber’s two-bedroom loft at 15 Union Square West — the former headquarters of Tiffany & Co. — is on the market for $3.85 million with Bolla. It was previously asking $6.9 million with a different broker in 2015. Amenities in the 12-story building, which dates to 1929, include a gym, a spa and a 50-foot lap pool. Weber might even throw in some orchestra seats as soon as Broadway’s back in business.

Fashion fotog ditches Village digs

Shutterbug François Halard, 59, has photographed the world’s most beautiful women — including Christy Turlington and Shalom Harlow — as well as the historic homes of design legends Coco Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent. Now he’s selling his own home, a one-bedroom, one-bathroom, charming co-op in Greenwich Village, for $1.45 million. Halard (who’s shot ad campaigns for Giorgio Armani, Ralph Lauren and Burberry, and whose work appears in glossy mags as well as in his own books) divides his time between Manhattan and the South of France. His third-floor unit at the Mayfield (listed with Maryellen Cashman of Compass) overlooks the neighborhood’s leafy streets. It dates to 1910, with original details like crown moldings, high ceilings and hardwood floors — and a mere $1,400 monthly maintenance fee. Snap!

We hear…

That comedian Seth Rogen, 37, tore up the Upper East Side recently in a panel discussion at the 92nd Street Y with actress Jane Krakowski, 51, design diva Martha Stewart, 78, and neuroscientist Dr. Heather Berlin on brain wellness — benefitting his Hilarity for Charity nonprofit, which raises awareness and aims to accelerate progress in care for Alzheimer’s disease patients. The evening was hosted by Inspir Carnegie Hill, a new luxury senior residence on the Upper East Side. The panelists discussed the effects of comedy, music and food on brains. As Rogen quipped: “What a weird group!”
