Bridgehampton is always a force to reckon with in the Cup, yet has never won. This year’s Bridge news included a $40M sale near Sagg Pond, the opening of the new bar and restaurant Zigmund’s in what had been Fresh, and Christie Brinkley putting her lovely Tower Hill estate back on the market for $30M. The Gateway development proposal, after fierce opposition, was canned. And next year will see the premiere of the documentary Killer Bees about the local champion basketball team. Can Bridge unite everyone for a Cup win this year?
The Northwest Woods has plenty to offer too: there are plenty of great parks, bay beaches, and of course woods. Peace and quiet abounds in this corner of East Hampton, which is still relatively uncrowded, and offers reasonably priced properties. It's easy to get to Sag Harbor or East Hampton village shops and restaurants, too. In real estate news, an original Gwathmey sold in July and Sean “Diddy” Combs offered his home for rent for the first time.
