Ruth Madoff is finally living in style again — sharing a $3.8 million, waterfront mansion in Connecticut with a former daughter-in-law’s family, The Post has learned.
Just hours after the prison death of her widely reviled husband — infamous fraudster Bernie Madoff — Ruth declined to come to the door at the sprawling, four-bedroom house in the swank Lucas Point section of Old Greenwich.
”She is here, but she’s not available,” said a young woman with long, dark hair who held back a large dog.
Publicly available records suggest that Ruth, 79, moved into the house in September.
Before that, she was living in virtual exile in a rented, 989-square-foot townhouse on the other side of the tracks in Old Greenwich, The Post revealed in 2017.
Ruth, who dropped any claim to about $80 million in assets held by her and Bernie in exchange for $2.5 million in cash, moved there in 2012 to be closer to her grandchildren after briefly living in a condo in Boca Raton, Fla.
The Lucas Point house was built in 2005 and boasts nearly 4,000 feet of living space, including a double-height entry gallery, two fireplaces, a private dock and floor-to-ceiling windows with views of Greenwich Cove, according to the Zillow real-estate website.
Records show it’s owned by Susan Elkin, 56, the first wife of Ruth and Bernie’s elder son Mark, with whom she had two kids, Daniel Madoff, 29, and Kate Madoff, 26.
Mark committed suicide in 2010 by hanging himself on the second anniversary of his father’s blockbuster arrest for his record-setting, $65 million Ponzi scheme.
“Bernie, now you know how you have destroyed the lives of your sons by your life of deceit. F–-k you,” wrote Mark, 48.
In 2012, Elkin was sued for $2.4 million by the bankruptcy trustee who clawed back Bernie Madoff’s ill-gotten gains for distribution to his victims.
