The beloved eccentric first visited the area in the 1960’s with her close friends Andy Warhol and The Velvet Underground.
The Long Island East End abode offers 1.6 acres of lush landscape within walking distance to the beach—and the hip downtown neighborhood.
In addition four bedrooms and 3-and-a-half baths, the cottage includes a wood-burning fireplace, two-car garage, and a natural light-filled sunroom for lounging indoors.
There’s also a full gourmet kitchen—complete with vaulted ceilings and French doors—as well as a spacious dining area.
Despite having a traditional open floor layout, the quirky fashionista has put her signature stamp of bold patterns and bright colors throughout the space.
The manicured backyard boasts a heated swimming pool surrounded by a scenic stone terrace, making the $1.75 million price tag seem surprisingly more affordable.
