The East Hampton home of Eleanor Lynch—a cookbook author who wrote Reynolds Wrap Creative Cooking With Aluminum Foil back in 1967—has come on the market for $3.65 million. Since 1958, the home has been in Lynch’s family.

Lynch also served as the editor for The Ogilvie Cookbook which was released in 1957, and The Modern Hostess Cook Book: All American Issue in 1942.

Located in Louse Point, this East Hampton Springs beachfront home has 150 feet of water frontage on Gardiner’s Bay on nearly an acre of land. Inside the 3,700-square-foot structure, there are five bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Inside, there are beamed cathedral ceilings in the waterview living room, wood-paneled walls, hardwood floors, a brick fireplace, and a sizable kitchen. The interiors could definitely benefit from some updating—particularly in the kitchen—but we think that this beach house would be a great fixer-upper project with a fun history.

The property is represented by Denise Wilder and Christopher Stewart from Douglas Elliman.
