Academy Award-winning actress Julianne Moore has taken her Montauk home off the market.
Moore listed the modest but lovely, 1,000-square-foot cottage for just shy of $3.5 million with Town & Country Real Estate broker Theresa Eurell last September, but she has apparently decided not to sell. When pressed for details about her change of heart, Town & Country reps had none to offer.
Facing Fort Pond on .69 acres, Moore’s waterfront cottage has three bedrooms and just one bath. The home has a screened-in porch, well manicured but rustic landscaping, and a gunite pool with pool cabana and outdoor shower. Inside, 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—clearly a must-have feature for the Still Alice Oscar winner.
While it’s impossible to know what led Moore to keep her Montauk home, for now, perhaps she’s keeping the getaway in the face of Donald Trump possibly being elected President of the United States. The 55-year-old actress has been an outspoken opponent of Trump and supporter of his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton. She shared her misgivings with The Huffington Post following the Republican National Convention on Wednesday. “I don’t know that any society has moved forward by being exclusive and nationalistic and that’s what I’m seeing Donald Trump doing,”Moore said, also pointing out that she heard a lot about why Clinton is bad, but little about why people should vote for Trump. “I think it’s very negative and incredibly detrimental to us as a society.”
If Trump should take the White House, what could be better than escaping to the quiet of Montauk in the fall? Fort Pond is a wonderful spot for quiet kayak and SUP excursions—perfect for taking one’s mind off political nightmares come true.
