Director Robert Benton Lists in The Georgica Association for $29.9M

New, 2 comments

Very little compares to the private enclave of estate homes in the Georgica Association in Wainscott. And for that reason, director and screenwriter Robert Benton evidently has no problem slapping a $29.9 million price tag onto his 2.5-acre pondfront spread in the tony community. The Kramer v. Kramer cottage features an eye-catching "40-foot-wide great room," which was "designed by the architect Charles Gwathmey" and "decorated with 16th-century beams recovered from a house in England." Other aquatic amenities include ocean access, "a large coastal lagoon," and 724' of pond-frontage. Listing agent Peter Turino, president of BHS of the Hamptons, adds that the 5,000-square-foot house offers a three-car garage and four bedrooms. According to the WSJ, Benton was a victim of the recent Kenneth I. Starr financial fraud. But don't feel too bad! "A broker familiar with the listing said that the Starr fraud allegation wasn't a factor in the sale."
