BRIDGEHAMPTON NORTH, NEW YORK (approximate)
Christie Brinkley is an American model and actress. Brinkley gained worldwide fame beginning in the late 1970s with three consecutive Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue covers through 1981. She spent twenty five years as the face of CoverGirl (the longest running cosmetics contract of any model in history), has appeared on over 500 magazine covers, and has signed contracts with major brands—both fashion and non-fashion.
Brinkley has been known to list some large estates in the past, the most recent being a span of acreage in the Hamptons for a cool $10 million. Now this summer she is listing this stunning estate nearby for $29 million.
The compound features two vast homes – the first having a 50-foot observation tower, plus a guest house with a greenhouse conservatory.
Built in 1891 the property has been named “Tower Hill”, and spans more than 9,000 square feet.
Brinkley has lived in this gorgeous estate for the last 18 years, but has listed the property to retreat to “one of her other properties in Sag Harbor on the water,” according to a release from listing agent Enzo Morabito of Douglas Elliman Real Estate.
From the listing agent: “On 3 single and separate lots, totaling 20+/- acres, and views spanning to the Atlantic Ocean and Connecticut Shore, resides “Tower Hill”, a family compound estate like no other in the Hamptons. Dreamed up by local nobility, Dr. John Gardiner in 1891, and restored with meticulous care by a well-known celebrity and her family, the property offers a 4-bedroom, 5-bath main house sitting on a base of 475 tons of local rock, with an astonishing 50′ observation tower. Add to this a 4-bedroom, 2.5-bath guest house with a greenhouse conservatory, and a separate barn/artist studio with living quarters and a 4-car heated garage. Luxury highlights include an oversized country kitchen, a double-height great room, living and family rooms, 3 fireplaces, gym, office, wisteria covered pergola, multi-level stone terraces, and gated entry. All this is enveloped by park-like land, meandering lawns, beautiful old specimen trees, winding walking paths, hills for winter sledding, a surprising private pond, a hidden tennis court, and of course an oversized heated Gunite pool with spa. Please inquire for a tour of this secluded estate.”
