Once the home of late artist Hedda Sterne, this 1.36-acre compound in the Springs neighborhood of East Hampton has recently found a buyer and is currently pending a sale.

The property, which consists of two barns and a 1,000-square-foot cottage, came on the market in September of 2018 for $1,425,000 and hasn’t had any changes in price since. Features of the one-bedroom, one-bath house include a wide open floorplan, a sunroom, a funky midcentury style gas fireplace, and a wall of windows that allows views of the surrounding landscape indoors. The larger of the two barns was once used as a firehouse back in the 1900s, but became Sterne’s artist studio when she lived at the Springs residence.

Sterne built the compact cottage back in 1967. The abstract expressionist and surrealist artist lived to be 100 years old before she passed away in 2011. She was a member of the New York School of painters and has had work on display in multiple museums.

PropertyShark records indicate that 212 Hog Creek Road was last purchased in 2005 for $1,277,000.

The new property owner will be about 4.5 miles from the Amagansett LIRR station, and about 6 miles north of the ocean at Indian Wells Beach.

Sotheby’s International Realty agent Rebekah Baker represents the sellers in the transaction.
