Adebayo Ogunlesi, a Nigerian finance executive, is buying venture capitalist John Pickett?s beach mansion on Great Plains Road in Southampton for $24 million ? far less than its $38 million asking price.
Pickett, the former owner of the NHL?s New York Islanders, renovated the 17,000-square-foot mansion with architect Francis Fleetwood. Pickett bought the home, which comes with 200-year-old beech trees, for $5.5 million in 2001.
Corcoran Group listing broker Tim Davis declined to comment.
Meanwhile, Pickett is downsizing on the East End. He just bought a $3 million home on Cobblefield Lane in Southampton. That home was owned by Denis P. Coleman, a former executive at Bear Stearns.
Ogunlesi, former chief client officer at Credit Suisse First Boston, once clerked for Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall.
