A gorgeous wood-shingled, East Hampton home has just hit the market through Sotheby’s International Realty. While the 3.25 million dollar house is worth every penny from its updated rustic aesthetic to the unbeatable oceanfront view, the property’s former owner is perhaps its best selling point. Famous for her role as Samantha Jones in Sex and the City, Kim Cattrall bought the home in 1998, the same year the show first aired.
The 17,424 square foot home exudes sophistication and simplicity, highlighting the laid back waterfront lifestyle for which East Hampton, NY is historically renowned. The location is breathtakingly peaceful with plenty of space to relax, do yoga, or even go on a run; and with the ocean just a few feet from the house, swimming is always an option! It’s understandable why during her time on the emmy-winning show, Cattrall was known to visit the home to de-stress from the hustle and bustle of Sex and the City life.
Tucked behind a gate for utmost privacy, the estate is located on the illustrious Gerard Drive stretching all the way to Gardiner’s Bay. The breathtaking views of Montauk and Shelter Island also come with private access to the beautiful blue East Hampton sea. A newly refurbished outdoor shower, fire pit, and waterside hot tub make this home the perfect place to relax and soak up the sun.
Inside the main house is an L-shaped open living / dining area with large windows that frame the sea view and a wood burning fireplace. In true Hollywood style, the living space doubles as a screening room with a 59 x 80 inch motorized screen that descends from the ceiling at the click of a button. Imagine inviting all your friends over for movie night and never worrying about running out of space! The main house also boasts hardwood flooring, a luxury kitchen, two bedrooms, and 2.5 half baths.
Perhaps one of the most special features of this East Hampton home is its detached, oversized studio apartment that is perfect for friends or extended family. The studio has its own half bathroom, storage space, and private deck while a spacious, grassy lawn, mahogany decks, and bluestone walkways gracefully frame the main house and spacious studio. This laid back, quintessential beach home is the perfect spot to sip cosmos and admire the best views New York has to offer.
