The Cody House estate actually comprises four separate lots, with the most predominant being a  7, 500-square-foot house, which comes with seven bedrooms, two fireplaces, a fitness room, library, and a home office. Also included in the deal is  a separate a three-bedroom guest house, and two and two other lots which are currently vacant.

On a quiet evening in the East Hamptons, Geffen can even take a quiet stroll down to one of his near  neighbors Steven Spielberg, who just happens to be his partner in DreamWorks SKG, which they founded together in 1994 with Jeffrey Katzenberg.

As well as his East Hamptons property, Geffen currently owns what was until recently New York  city’s most expensive co-op,  a penthouse triplex on 5th Avenue valued at around $54 million.
