Ed Victor—a notable literary agent who represented celebrities like Eric Clapton and Tina Brown—owned the Water Mill home made of two 17th-century English barns with his wife, Carol Ryan, before he passed away last year.

It went on the market in July of 2017 for $3,495,000 under Brown Harris Stevens real estate agent Korine Konzet, and received a price cut that brought it down to $2,995,000 a few months later.

After less than a year on the market, Two Barns is now in contract under its most recent asking price. The two barns that comprise the home are from the 17th century, but the home was constructed in the early ’80s, inspired by British architect Edwin Lutyens and the time that Carol Ryan spent renting a converted barn in Bridgehampton.

In 3,000 square feet, there are five bedrooms, three bathrooms, and four wood-burning fireplaces. The first barn is host to the 25-foot high great room with white stucco walls and hand-hewn black oak beams. Beyond that, the second of the two barns is the entire master suite, which has a fireplace, sitting area, dressing area, and master bathroom with a fireplace.

Exterior features include a tennis court with viewing pavilion, a putting green, a pergola-covered dining area, a full outdoor kitchen, and a heated pool and spa.
