The Hamptons retreat of actor Alec Baldwin appeared on the greater New York City open market this winter. The relisting finds the bucolic and private estate tagged at $24.9 million; the current ask represents a $4 million reduction over the listing price set in September of last year when the property initially appeared for sale by Baldwin.
The farmhouse property is located in Amagansett; its ten acres of deeded land is bordered by a substantial border of preserve land. The location choice substitutes privacy for waterfront exclusivity, and the property’s neighbors are working farms. The house itself is a historical presence, dating to the late 1700s; it has been updated, but sensitively, by Baldwin and co.
The estate’s acreage has been left generally uncluttered since Baldwin acquired the property in the mid-1990s. A pool and companion spa, both surrounded by rusticated stone, a covered fireplace patio and a solar panel array are the only substantive interruptions in the long, variegated, freshet-running carpet of tree-dotted lawn and meadow that surrounds the home.
Baldwin, currently at the center of a huge controversy over issues of gun safety and proper appraisal of individual responsibility following a production tragedy, purchased a historic farm in Vermont in February of last year. It, too, dates from the 18th century.
Baldwin’s upcoming projects include Supercell; the film features Anne Heche in her final film role. He also stars in Atrabilious, with Whoopi Goldberg, 97 Minutes, with Jonathan Rhys Meyers, and Kid Santa with his brother William.
