The East Hampton home of Louisa Chase, a renowned neo-expressionist painter and printmaker, has found an owner, reports 27east. The home is located on Spring Close Highway and sold for $975,000.
Chase died in May of last year at the age of 65 in East Hampton. She grew up in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and taught at the Rhode Island School of Design. Her work is in many collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Library of Congress, the Corcoran Gallery, and the Denver Art Museum, just to name a few.
The 2,000-square-foot home was built in the 1930s on a 0.83-acre lot. The property includes a separate artist’s studio (appropriately), and is located close to the village and beaches.
At three bedrooms and two-and a-half bathrooms, the house is a decent size for a family or a summer home. Though the home isn’t as modernized as one might expect from an artist’s East Hampton home, the structure clearly has a lot of charm to it.
- Unfortunately there aren’t very many available photos of the interior, but the ones provided show hardwood floors and seems spacious. The Douglas Elliman listing offers the possibility of demolishing and rebuilding, but at this point that’s up to the new owner.
