Madoff’s Beach House Sells

It doesn’t come with furniture, but the new homeowner should check the floorboards: Bernard Madoff’s Montauk, New York, beach house has sold to an unidentified buyer. Interest in the property was “fast and furious,” according to the real-estate agent, who would not specify the exact price except that it was more than the $8.75 million asking price. Madoff bought the 3,000-square-foot home in the 1980s, and it was seized by the government in July. Neighbors along the beach include Robert DeNiro and Ralph Lauren.
