The home of Jordan Belfort, the convicted stockbroker who inspired The Wolf of Wall Street, is up for sale again.
The two-acre mansion on Long Island is being marketed for $2.89 million (£2.24 million) after its price was slashed to try to lure a buyer, according to The New York Post.
Located at 5 Pin Oak Court in Glen Head, the property was previously put on the market for $3.4 million in March 2017, meaning a prospective buyer can look forward to a $510,000, or 15%, reduction.
“I think this is a great price for the house,” said Dana Forbes, of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty, who is marketing the listing. She said the property now offers great bang for the buck.
The home has had one owner since being sold off by the feds in 2001 as part of the $110 million restitution Belfort owed his nearly 1,500 fraud victims.
The sprawling mansion contains five bedrooms and eight bathrooms across 8,706 square feet.
It has a two-story foyer, a billiards room with a coffered ceiling, a large kitchen, a gym and a racquetball court. There are also four fireplaces and an outdoor pool.
In The Wolf of Wall Street 2013 film, which was based on Belfort’s 2007 memoir of the same name, the house (played by another, nearby property) is represented in the scene where Belfort, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, lands a helicopter while drunk and high. In another scene, Belfort arrives at the home nearly paralysed by the recreational drug Quaalude.
Belfort pleaded guilty in 1999 to fraud and other charges relating to penny-stock scams and market manipulation. He is now a motivational speaker.
