The credit card company received a cease-and-desist last week when they learned of a Jennifer Fisher jewelry sale to be hosted at the residence. Hosting such an event at the property directly violates a zoning code which states that residential districts cannot be used for commercial purposes.
So it seems like the company renting the property is A-OK—it’s just the events that are going to give them some problems.
Designed in 1897 by Joseph Greenleaf Thorpe, the 6,652-square-foot home sits on almost 2 acres of land, and is equipped with nine bedrooms, seven-and a-half bathrooms, a swimming pool, a tennis court, and apparently a lot of ghosts.
It is located at 3 West End Road in East Hampton, near Georgica beach. The estate is currently owned by Sally Quinn.
