Not So Happily At Home In the Hamptons: Buyers of Dolly Lenz’s Spread Sue

lenzhouse Not So Happily At Home In the Hamptons: Buyers of Dolly Lenzs Spread Sue

What’s wrong with it?

Doesn’t a 6,459-square-foot Hamptons manse with seven bedrooms, an outdoor pool, tennis court, carriage house and four-car garage sound like the perfect place to spend the holiday weekend?

But alas, apparently the former home of power broker Dolly Lenz is not perfect, as the new buyers are suing Ms. Lenz and her broker for breach of contract, reports The Real Deal.

Ms. Lenz, who engaged the services of Corcoran Senior Vice President Tim Davis and the group’s Southampton office to help her sell the Water Mill, Long Island property, closed the deal with Upper East Siders Henry C.K. Liu and his wife Judy for $5.47 million in April.

Brokers, especially real estate superstar, most successful Prudential Douglas Elliman of-all-time brokers certainly know how to show a home to its best advantage. So maybe the place just looked better than it should have when Mr. Davis showed it, much like a date in the dim light of a bar? Or could it be a pest of sorts? A rodent infestation, raccoons in the attic, a neighbor who loves nude sunbathing?

For now, at least, the problem will remain a mystery, reports The Real Deal, as the couple only filed a one-page summons suing Ms. Lenz, her husband Aaron, Mr. Davis and the Corcoran Southampton for breach of contract and negligent misrepresentation. And they don’t feel like commenting.

But it can’t be anything too horrible, as the couple is only suing for $20,700.
