Bernard Madoff's Montauk beach house on New York's Long Island has been sold to an unidentified buyer in an all cash deal "over the asking price," realtors Joan and Raymond Hegner of the Corcoran Group told ABCNews.com.
"We have a fully signed contract," said Joan Hegner, who added that interest in the convicted conman's beachfront property was "fast and furious."
Hegner said several buyers submitted sealed, final offers, and the U.S. Marshals Service selected the winner. She declined to reveal the name of the buyer or the amount of the winning offer.
"We cannot reveal any of the price details until after it closes," Hegner said.
There was great interest in the Madoff home after U.S. Marshals put in on the market and conducted a video tour for news cameras.
"As soon as you walk into it, there is an understated elegance you don't see from the outside," said U.S. Marshal Roland Ubaldo as he walked reporters through the 3,000 square foot home.
Ubaldo confirmed to ABCNews.com's The Blotter that the contract has been signed on the property, but said he could not comment further on the details of the sale at this time.
Madoff bought the property and built the home in the 1980's. It was seized by the government in July and proceeds from the sale will go to the victims of Madoff's Ponzi scheme. His neighbors along the beach include Robert DeNiro and Ralph Lauren.
"People recognized the value of the property, the home, the incomparable views and nice, easy access to the beach," said Hegner.
