Still Alice Oscar-winner Julianne Moore has put her modest-but-perfect, 1,000-square-foot Montauk cottage on the market for just shy of $3.5 million.
According to Town & Country Real Estate’s listing by broker Theresa Eurell, the waterfront property facing Fort Pond is .69 acres and the small home has three bedrooms and just one bath. But it’s certainly lovely—with a screened-in porch, well manicured but not over-landscaped lawn, gunite pool with pool cabana and outdoor shower, this is a classic, beautiful little Hamptons cottage. The house also features central air, a black painted brick fireplace, custom wood walls, wide plank floors, high ceilings with exposed wood support beams and lots of privacy, which is a must for celebrity homeowners, especially in busy Montauk.
Fort Pond is also directly accessible from the property for SUP excursions, swimming, kayaking or even fishing. Of course the ocean beaches and Montauk’s village shops and restaurants are close by as well.
And while it’s wonderful to see Moore chose not to buy a massive mcmansion or some tastelessly opulent palace for herself, it’s also possible this might be a little too humble an abode for such a major star. We’re hoping the sale doesn’t mean Moore is leaving the Hamptons, but is instead the first step in upgrading her situation here.
After all, Moore’s showing no signs of slowing down in her storied career. She reprises her role as President Alma Coin in the third Hunger Games installment, Mockingjay Part 2, in theaters this November. And in a more weighty turn, Moore stars alongside Ellen Page in Freeheld, a true story hitting theaters this month about police officer Laurel Hester’s efforts to the Ocean County, New Jersey Board of Chosen Freeholders to transfer her pension benefits to her domestic partner after she was diagnosed with terminal cancer.
