A stunning compound with an artistic history has become available for sale in the Georgica section of East Hampton for $11.8 million under Brown Harris Stevens agent, Martha Gundersen. The two-home compound is sited on more than three acres of land in the famed south-of-the-highway neighborhood that Beyoncé and Grey Gardens call home.

One of the properties previously belonged to world renowned art collector, Richard Eckstract. The second property was at one time the home of Phyllis Newman, a Tony Award-winning stage actress, and her husband Adolph Green, who co-wrote the iconic Singin’ in the Rain.

Both homes were designed by Alexander Gorlin, who is one of Architecture Digest’s Top 100 Architects.


Let’s start first with looking at 34 Darby Lane, which was once the property of Richard Eckstract.

Built in 1990, this home stands 4,871 square feet with four bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms on over two acres. Interior features include an elevator that services the second-level master suite, a fireplace, a veranda entrance, foyer, eat-in kitchen, and French doors off two of the upstairs bedrooms that overlook the grounds.

Outside, there’s a two-car detached garage and a heated pool with grotto.

Available on its own, this property would cost you $6.9 million.

The home at 59 Georgica Road—built in 2006—stands on the site that was once home to musical couple Phyllis Newman and Adolph Green. This home is slightly smaller with 4,277 square feet, three bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, and one wood-burning fireplace on just over an acre of land.

The exterior of this estate has an incredible courtyard and flower garden, while interiors include beamed ceilings in the living room, an artist studio, two elevators, a tower, and rooftop deck. There’s also a detached garage and a greenhouse.

By itself, this property would cost you $4.9 million.
