For the first time, fashion designer Elie Tahari’s oceanfront Sagaponack estate has been listed for sale under Sotheby’s International Realty agents Keith Green and Ann Ciardullo for a whopping $44,995,000—making it one of the most expensive properties for sale on the East End.
For almost $45 million, the home seems a bit small—built in 1998, it’s about 4,500 square feet with three bedrooms and three full bathrooms. Though, it’s worth mentioning that the land is a decent size, on 2.5 oceanfront acres, with 250 feet of direct ocean frontage.
Earlier this summer, Tahari rented out his estate for July and August to a hedge funder. Spending two months at the Hamptons pad cost the guy an incredible $800,000.
The home itself is a refurbished century-old barn, with a great room, hearth, chef’s kitchen, roll-up glass doors (think: garage-like doors) that lead out to the back yard with a lap pool and beach access. Upstairs, the master suite sits with a spa bath and water view from the private balcony.
The double-height great room has beamed cathedral ceilings, a full wall of windows that looks out to the ocean, and hardwood floors.
An addition by Stelle LoMont Rouhani Architects has been designed and approved by the village zoning board—meaning the oceanfront land can be built upon, even if the future homeowner chooses not to go through with the design that’s in place. In fact, the property can yield a 10,000-square-foot structure with eight bedrooms—which is what the architects have designed.
Unfortunately, there aren’t many photos available of the exterior, so it’s hard to tell if any updates need to be made.
