The oceanfront home that Hillary and Bill Clinton rented in 2011 and 2012 has sold for $29 million under listing agent Rebekah Baker of Sotheby’s International Realty, reports the Wall Street Journal.
Since December of 2015, the home has been in contract—meaning that the contract was signed nearly two years ago, after having come on the market just five months earlier in July for $32.5 million. It had previously been listed for sale in 2008 for $31 million, but was soon after taken off the market.
The $29 million purchase price marks the highest 2017 sale in East Hampton to date.
Property developer Elie Hirschfeld, son of late real estate developer Abe Hirschfeld, purchased the home in 1996 for $3.2 million and made renovations to the home in 2002. The kitchen was renovated in in 2015.
Situated directly on Georgica Beach and located close to Lily Pond, the 10,000-square-foot home has eight bedrooms, nine full bathrooms, and two half-bathrooms on 1.02 acres with about 200 feet of direct ocean frontage.
Built in 1920 by John Custis Lawrence, the home features ocean views from almost every room, two powder rooms, a sun room, a library, a gourmet kitchen, six fireplaces, a heated gunite pool, and a private path to the beach.
