An 11.2-acre East Hampton Village estate on Georgica Pond—already subdivided into 7.5- and 3.7-acre parcels—has gone on the market for a mind-blowing $140 million.
No, $140 million is not record-breaking—the title is held by 60 Further Lane, an 18-acre East Hampton estate sold earlier this year to hedge fund manager Barry Rosenstein for $147 million.
This property is owned by Chris Whittle, best known for being the founder of Channel One and former publisher of Esquire.
Known as Briar Patch, the Georgica Pond estate is located on namesake Briar Patch Road and has 1,156 feet of water frontage, with southwest views over the pond and out to the ocean.
The main residence is 10,300 square feet with six bedrooms. Known at the Shepard Krech House, this Georgian Revival was built circa 1931 by architect Arthur C. Jackson, then renovated in 1990 by Peter Marino, who also designed the second residence that year.
Features of the main house include a three-story living room, sunken library, gourmet kitchen and third-story gym,
The secondary residence includes four bedrooms, a living room and a kitchen.
The grounds have mature sycamore and linden trees, trails and a private pond. The 60-foot pool and hot tub are accompanied by a sundeck and changing cabana. Additional amenities include a tennis court and four-car garage.
The estate is listed with Peter M. Turino, the president and principal broker of Brown Harris Stevens of the Hamptons.
