The 2,000-square-foot beach house in Water Mill that Mel Brooks once called his Hamptons house is now on the market for $11,995,000, reports Behind the Hedges. Brooks and his late wife, Anne Bancroft, purchased the home together in 2000 for $3 million. He then sold the estate in 2010 for $5.3 million before it sold again just four years later for $9 million.
Now, it’s available for an even higher price under Brown Harris Stevens agent, Mary Ann Cinelli.
On a full acre of oceanfront land with views of both the Atlantic Ocean and Mecox Bay, the three-bedroom, three-bathroom home has hardwood floors, beamed cathedral ceilings, and sliding glass doors throughout the home that lead to the exterior decking. From the deck, one can easily access their private ocean beach via a walkway.
The listing suggests:
Live in the house while you design your ideal oceanfront home. The large building envelope will allow you to create a major house and pool.
Located at 1131 Flying Point Road, the 1968 home has gotten some renovations from previous owners. We love the beamed ceilings and brick fireplace, but it seems likely that the existing cottage will be torn down to make room for a new home.
