hristie Brinkley’s idyllic Sag Harbor home officially has a new owner. The sale closed this week for just under the final asking price of $17,990,000, though the precise amount has yet to be confirmed. The supermodel bought the five-bedroom residence in 2004 for $7,150,000 and first listed it back in 2010. As 6sqft previously reported, the 5,500-square-foot property sought its highest asking price in 2016—a cool $25,000,000 with Enzo Morabito of Douglas Elliman. The price tag was lowered incrementally until it hit $17,999,000 last summer, as Brinkley continued to search for the right buyer.
Built in 1843, the historic Hamptons home is remarkably intact, boasting a number of period details such as the majestic entryway flanked by columns, exposed wood and iron beams, wide-plank pine floors, and multiple fireplaces throughout. The Colonial-style home sits on 4.5 acres and offers panoramic harbor views. Best of all, the sprawling property includes 337 feet of private beach and there’s even a bayside Gunite pool.
Inside, the spacious residence comprises multiple living and dining areas—some formal, others more cozy—a study, and a mud room. The kitchen features classic soapstone and marble counters. Vintage signage throughout brings a whimsical character to the space. Virtually every room boasts impressive harbor views. There are five bedrooms and five-and-a-half bathrooms in total, including a stunning master suite with its own sitting room and terrace.
Brinkley has another historic Hamptons home on the market, also listed with Morabito. The expansive 20-acre compound known as Tower Hill has been on and off the market since 2002. According to the New York Post, Brinkley (who has been renting in Tribeca while her Hamptons mansions were on the market) once said she would “live in whichever one doesn’t sell first.”
