Kiri’s old pad is for sale on Long Island. 

Sales blurb:

Here is a rare opportunity to purchase a unique property, tucked away at the end of a cul de sac, located on almost 4 acres in one of the most desirable areas of Oyster Bay Cove in the Syosset school district. This house boasts a long history as it is believed that Theodore Roosevelt socialized here. The previous owner was the soprano Kiri Te Kanawa, who lived here in the 1980s. Full of warmth and character, this special home integrates sophistication with country elegance.

    Only $2.2 million? In my old neighborhood in the suburbs of Seattle, a house like that (and more importantly the land) would go for $3-4 million these days.

    It must be a fixer upper.

  • Christy says:

    So, if I’m understanding, it’s not “Kiri’s house,” or hasn’t been since the 1980s? Is this correct?
