Christie Brinkley is getting rid of not one, but two stunning Hamptons mansions—and combined, the price totals to nearly $50 million.
First up? A 4.44-acre property in Sag Harbor. Brinkley—who purchased the estate back in 2004—is asking for $20 million for the beachfront home. Overlooking the harbor and bay, the mansion has 327 feet of sandy beach, a pool, a waterfront fire pit, and sprawling green lawns that make it the perfect spot for enjoying the summer outdoors.
The three-story, colonial style residence dates back to 1843, and is full of original touches, such as wide plank floors, an oak banister, and fireplaces scattered throughout the house. According to Enzo Morabito, the listing agent for the property, Brinkley added several contemporary updates—including a soapstone sink and marble counters in the kitchen—to preserve the old school feel, while still giving the home a modern (and more personalized) refresh.
“Everything you see here is a touch of Christie,” Morabito told CNBC. “It’s a mix of the old and the new.”
The mix of old and new is also evident in Brinkley’s second property, a Bridgehampton compound called “Tower Hill” that’s on the market for $29.5 million.
This equally historic estate dates back to 1891, and the eclectic decor definitely gives off an antique vibe. (We’re not sure how we feel about tiger-striped armchairs, but props to Brinkley for not being afraid to go big or go home.) Wide plank hardwood floors, stone fireplaces, and various forms of wooden walls throughout the home add to its vintage charm.
Tower Hill is named for the 50-foot observation tower that casually exists on the property. It spans about 20 acres, and features both a five-bedroom main house and four-bedroom guesthouse. A greenhouse conservatory, a barn/artist studio, a private pond, a tennis court, and a 75-foot swimming pool are all also on the lot. In other words, the future residents of Tower Hill will have almost no reason to leave.
Inside, a bright and cheery country-style kitchen offers ample space for entertaining (there’s even a fireplace), along with stainless steel appliances.
Other highlights include a double-height great room, multiple sitting rooms, and plenty of natural light streaming in through the tall windows.
“This house is the epitome of what the Hamptons is about,” continued Morabito, who is also the listing agent for the Bridgehampton property. “The choices of what type of property [Brinkley] has bought is brilliant. It was all about the land.”
Judging from the stunning outdoor space, we’d be inclined to agree.
