Famed Composer's Hilltop Home Comes With a Surprise Buddha

New, 2 comments

Formerly home to late Oscar, Grammy, Emmy, Tony, and Pulitzer Prize-winning (whew) composer Marvin Hamlisch, this hilltop property in Bedford, N.Y., just hit the market for $7.95M. Hamlisch—the man behind such shower stall classics as "The Way We Were" and "What I Did for Love"—bought the four-bedroom, 4,686-square-foot estate in 2011 with his wife, apparently drawn to the staggering views that stretch from Connecticut to New Jersey. Inside, the colonial manse offers a master bedroom suite on the first floor, along with a sunken music room, a formal dining room, and an octogonal breakfast nook that looks directly over the Hudson River. And though the place was originally built in 1968, it underwent a major renovation effort four years ago, leaving behind pretty, neutral-hued decor and exactly one massive, totally unexpected buddha mural. Take a look:
