The 7,200-square-foot main house.

For the first time since coming on the market in July of 2018, this six-structure compound on nearly 4 acres in Water Mill has just cut its asking price. Originally asking $25.9 million, the estate is now available for $19,995,000.

There are six structures on the property: a 7,200-square-foot main house, a fully renovated barn from the late 1800s, two guest cottages, a five-car garage, and a two-story pool house. In total, there’s over 21,000 square feet of living space, 11 bedrooms, 13 full bathrooms, and 5 half-bathrooms.

Inside the main house, one will find five bedrooms, seven and a half bathrooms, a double-height entry, three fireplaces, and French doors that lead to the pool, terraces, covered back porch, and gardens outside.

The restored barn offers a massive double-height living space with exposed beams and chestnut flooring, plus a kitchen and a beautiful dining room—making the space perfect for entertaining. Meanwhile, the two guest cottages both host two bedrooms and two bathrooms each.

Sited on nearly 4 acres of land designed by landscape architect Ed Hollander, the property includes an apple cider orchard, a tennis court, a pergola, and a pool off the main house. Technically, the property is waterfront on Burnett Creek (which leads into Mecox Bay), but residents will have to cross Flying Point Road in order to access the property’s direct water frontage and two docks.

The property currently belongs to high-end jewelry designer and philanthropist Joan Hornig and her husband, George. Bespoke Real Estate represents the listing.
