Christie Brinkley Puts Hamptons Homes Back on the Market at $20M and $29.5M

Actress, visual artist, and businesswoman Christie Brinkley recently relisted two properties on Long Island. One of them has seen a more aggressive price reduction than the other. Brinkley isn’t quite as keen to let go of ‘Tower Hill’ in Bridgehampton as she is to see her home in North Haven off into the sunset. The former’s original listing price—set some eight years ago—hasn’t diminished more than 2%, while the latter has seen a price cut of $5 million from its listing price of 2016.

All of which seems right on the money. ‘Tower Hill’ is an almost impossibly idyllic Hamptons estate. The shingle-style home—which dates to the last decade of the 19th century—is possessed of such nook-and-cranny asymmetrical eccentricity it might be considered a working definition of the style; the effect is so unselfconsciously disarming that the 50-foot medieval tower embellishment that soars over the roofline looks entirely a matter of course.

The landscaping that frames the house is edge-of-wild, giving the exterior of the home a storybook feel that is fairly dazzling. A greenhouse/solarium, private pond, guest home, artist’s studio, separate pool and spa, hills, dales, and gardens fill out the twenty acres. If you’ve got a novel or a latent gift for watercolors in you, you’re in luck: the $29.5 million purchase price includes all the creative inspiration you can handle.

The second property—now priced at $20 million—is a little more strident in design. It boasts as intoxicating a sense of history, if not the same complexity of poetic sensibility. A Georgian dating to the early 1840’s, the home features five bedrooms, a terrific layout, spectacular water views, 327 feet of beach frontage, harbor access, and 4.5 acres of equally pleasant bucolic Long Island land.

Brinkley was an art student before she became a model, actress, and businesswoman.
