Amid Mounting Legal Woes, Alec Baldwin Cuts Price on His Longtime Hamptons Home

The actor, who is now facing involuntary manslaughter charges over the fatal shooting on a movie set, just trimmed the price to $24.9 million

Actor Alec Baldwin dropped the price of his Hamptons estate by more than $4 million last week, just days before it was announced that he will be charged with involuntary manslaughter for the fatal shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of the movie “Rust.”

On Thursday, prosecutors in New Mexico announced that Mr. Baldwin, a producer and lead actor in the Western film, will be charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter. He was handling the gun that discharged, killing Hutchins and wounding the movie’s director, Joel Souza, on Oct. 21, 2021.

Mr. Baldwin’s multi-acre compound in Amagansett first hit the market in November with a $29 million sticker price. Last week, the ask was trimmed to $24.9 million.

At the centre of the estate is a more than 10,000-square-foot modern farmhouse. “Every detail of this impeccable two-story cedar shingle retreat has been curated to maximise indoor/outdoor space and utilise natural light throughout the year,” said the listing with Scott Bradley of Saunders & Associates.

The four-bedroom home boasts features including an eat-in kitchen, a movie theatre, a wine tasting room and a wood-panelled library. Plus there’s covered porches and two balconies that overlook the surrounding nature reserve.

Outside, a custom pavilion with a fieldstone fireplace is joined by a gunite pool and spa, as well as a fenced vegetable garden.

“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own an iconic 10-acre Amagansett estate,” Mr. Bradley told Mansion Global over email. And for potential buyers in need of a little more space, they “have the right to build another home, creating an uncompromising multi-home compound which is unheard of anywhere in the Hamptons today.”

Mr. Baldwin, 64, has called the pastoral spread home since 1996, when he purchased it for $1.75 million, listing records show.

In addition to charges against Mr. Baldwin, Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, the film’s armorer, will also be charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter. Like Mr. Baldwin, she denies any wrongdoing in the incident.

Dave Halls, the assistant director who handed Mr. Baldwin the gun, signed a plea agreement “for the charge of negligent use of a deadly weapon,” the district attorney’s office said Thursday.

“This decision distorts Halyna Hutchins’s tragic death and represents a terrible miscarriage of justice. Mr. Baldwin had no reason to believe there was a live bullet in the gun—or anywhere on the movie set,” Luke Nikas, a lawyer for Mr. Baldwin, said in a statement. “He relied on the professionals with whom he worked, who assured him the gun did not have live rounds. We will fight these charges, and we will win.”

The Emmy award-winning Mr. Baldwin, who couldn’t immediately be reached for comment, is best known for his role in films like “The Hunt for Red October” and “The Departed.” His TV resume includes a starring role in the sitcom “30 Rock” and most recently he regularly portrayed Donald Trump on “Saturday Night Live.”

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have officially put their massive Los Angeles mansion on the market for $68 million.

The lavish Beverly Hills property hit listing sites on Thursday, months after rumours began that the couple, who are reportedly estranged , were shopping the home around only a year after buying it for nearly $61 million.

The roughly 5-acre property—which is in a gated community and spans a massive 38,000 square feet—includes an indoor sports court with an adjacent gym and games room, according to the listing with Santiago Arana of the Agency. The firm declined to comment.

Lopez and Affleck paid $60.8 million for the compound in 2023.

Built in 2000, the house has 12 bedrooms and a whopping 24 bathrooms. The resort-sized property has the amenities to match, including a V-shaped pool with views over the surrounding hills, a detached two-bedroom guardhouse and a 5,000-square-foot guest penthouse, according to the listing.

Listing images of the house show that Lopez and Affleck have spent the past year warming up what were fairly white-washed interiors when they purchased the home. There’s now a rich, green-painted dining room, hardwood floors and carpeted over cold, polished-stone flooring.

The couple, who got married in 2022 after reuniting some 20 years after they called off their engagement in the early 2000s, purchased the megamansion following a house hunt that went on for several months, The Wall Street Journal reported at the time.

Representatives for Lopez, 54, and Affleck, 51, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
