Actress Lorraine Bracco reportedly has pulled her 5,000-square-foot Bridgehampton, N.Y. house off the market after it was listed for $3.5 million, and she still is trying to sell her three-bedroom house on the Hudson River in Snedens Landing, N.Y. for $3.2 million.
The “Soprano’s” actress, 52, is selling the house at 40 Lawrence Lane in Snedens Landing, which is an exclusive, two-square-mile enclave in Palisades, N.Y. that is loaded with stars like Bill Murray, Al Pacino and Bjork. Bracco has owned the house since buying it in 1990 with actor and then-husband Harvey Keitel from fellow actress Ellen Burstyn for $1.2 million. She first put it up for sale in 2004 for $4.4 million. Bracco’s three-bedroom house in Palisades sits on two acres and has a private deck and terraced garden, according to news accounts. The house was originally built in the 1950s as a guest cottage for an adjacent property, and is accessed via a private road. The estate has the Hudson River on one side and a nature preserve surrounding a waterfall on the other, according to news accounts. The two-story house also has three fireplaces and terraces on both floors that are connected by a stone spiral staircase. Bracco cut the asking price for the house to $3.9 million last year, and now has reduced it further, to $3.2 million. See the house’s listing sheet here.
Over the years, Bracco has called herself a “big real estate nut” in the press. She has said of the Snedens Landing listing, “It’s really beautiful” and “I hope I don’t regret this,” referring to selling the Snedens Landing house. “I love any window overlooking the Hudson, and the way that everyday the view is different,” the actress told the Westchester Journal-News in 2004. “In an ice storm or a thunderstorm, or when lightning hits the river or it’s frozen…it’s unbelievable.”
As for her Bridgehampton house, Bracco bought it in 2004 for $1.6 million from publishing heiress Anne Hearst. Built in 1996, the five-bedroom, 4,500-square-foot postmodern house on close to 1 acre at 460 Butter Lane in Bridgehampton has four and a half baths, a media room, a high-end kitchen, a 50-foot heated pool, and an outdoor Jacuzzi, according to news accounts. It also overlooks an 11-acre reserve. The New York Post is reporting today that that house has been taken off the market, but its listing sheet remains on Prudential Douglas Elliman’s website—at least for now.

Bracco also reportedly keeps a small pied-a-terre in New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood.
