59 Middle Lane serves as both the title of a 2012 documentary and the address of the East Hampton home at which the documentary takes place. In this case, the address is up for sale, asking $12.7 million with Judi Desiderio of Town & Country Real Estate.
The documentary tells the story of twins Greg and Alexa Ammon—their millionaire father, Ted Ammon, was murdered (and found in the upstairs bedroom of the East Hampton home). Fingers were pointed at his wife and the man she was having an affair with in the middle of their divorce.
The twins were 10 years old at the time, adopted from Ukraine. Shortly after the murder of Ted, their mother Generosa died of cancer, and the two are left without parents.
In 2011, the siblings decide to reconcile their past. They visit the East Hampton home at 59 Middle Lane where the events took place, and they go to Ukraine together to visit the orphanage where they were adopted and the street where their birth mother lived.
The home—which was featured in Variety before it was on the market to sell and was only available to rent—was built in 1995 and stands 7,000-square-feet on 2.2 acres of land. There are six bedrooms, six-and-a-half bathrooms, a solarium, library, gourmet kitchen, library and gym.
Outside, there’s gated access, gardens, a pond, heated pool, pool house, and three-car garage.
Though the tabloid murder history aspect might make this home hard to sell, the location is worth mention. Though it’s not directly on the ocean, the property is south of the highway and only a 15-minute walk to Two Mile Hollow. It’s also close to the Maidstone Club and about a five-minute drive from the village.
