Three-time Sports Illustrated cover girl Christie Brinkley is selling her Bridgehampton family home, “Tower Hill” (named for the 1891 observation tower that was built as part of the main house). Yep, Brinkley and her family have called the wooded 20-acre estate home sweet home for 15 years, and now they’re moving on to something a bit smaller.
And rightly so. The 11,000-square-feet, three-story house (observation tower, and guest house) comes complete with nine bedrooms, seven baths, and four half-baths. A celebrity status estate comes with a celebrity status price tag, too: $29.5 million.
A cheery entry is just the start. Get ready for more whimsical charm and step inside:
With sizable windows, natural materials, and a neutral color scheme, the double-height great room draws from its wooded surroundings and invites the outdoors in.
Brinkley’s oversized, country-style kitchen is bit more colorful. Note the wide double doors that open up to a stone terrace and a cozy keeping room beyond the oblong island: an entertainer’s dream space.
Pass through in to the light-filled sunroom to see Christie’s whimsy style at its prime. With green and blue views from every angle (and access to another stone terrace), it’s the perfect spot for a leisurely afternoon.
That wisteria-covered pergola overlooking the heated gunite pool isn’t even the best of it. Wind around the property’s walking paths to find rolling hillsides with views of the Atlantic and Connecticut Shore, a private pond, tennis court, and gated entry.
