Hamptons celebrity real estate is always in flux. It’s hard to keep track of who’s buying, who’s selling and who’s renting. Here’s what’s happening this week.
Late Grove Press publisher and controversial anti-censorship advocate Barney Rosset’s 5,250-square-foot home on 400 Hands Creek Road in East Hampton is on the market from Town & Country Real Estate for $6,495,000. The compound on 13.5 acres of open meadows and gardens includes a tennis court, swimming pool, pool house, wine cellar, rooftop hot tub and separate garage in a secluded park-like setting surrounded by reserves. Appointed with ash and cherry wood interiors and limestone floors, this is the home of the man who published D. L. Lawrence’s Lady Chatterly’s Lover and Henry Miller’s Tropic of Cancer, and who brought Samuel Beckett and Beat poet Allen Ginsberg to the masses!
Broadway and Hollywood producer Sandy Gallin, who managed the careers of Michael Jackson, Dolly Parton, Cher, Neil Diamond, Barbra Streisand, Mariah Carey and Whoopie Goldberg has listed his estate on East Hampton’s Further Lane for $22.5 million with Douglas Elliman. The home has 7 bedrooms, 9 baths, 2 half-baths and 6,500 square feet of living space on 2.11 acres. Including a main house and 4 outbuildings, the property features outdoor entertainment areas, stone installations, Gunite pool, separate spa and apple orchards in a unified compound. In true Hollywood style, it has a major screening room, as well as a gym, pool house and much more.
Former NBA point guard Jason “Jay” Williams has rented a 3,450-square-foot mid-century modern in East Hampton’s Northwest Woods for August. Listed by Saunders at $65,000 from August to Labor Day, the house has 5 en-suite bedrooms and 5.5 baths, including a master suite with large walk-in closet, master bath with walk-in shower and soaking tub, and doors facing the 16- x 44-foot Gunite pool outside. Also featured: a large eat-in kitchen with island, large media room/den, dining area facing out to a bluestone patio, and downstairs with children’s recreation area and 20- x 24-foot movie theater. Construction was completed on this house in December of 2014, and it’s “just seconds to the nearest bay beach.”
