Located in North Haven on almost a full acre of waterfront land, the shingled home of late fashion icon China Machado has just seen another cut in asking price. Originally listed for $9.8 million when it came on the market nearly a year ago, the former model’s unique and artistic house is now available for $7.85 million.
Machado—a Portuguese-American model who was born in China—was the first non-white person to grace the cover of a major magazine in the U.S. when she was featured in Harper’s Bazaar in 1959. Over the course of her career, she modeled for names like Givenchy and Balenciaga, was at one time the highest-paid runway model in Europe, and was considered Richard Avedon’s muse. She passed away in 2016.
In 3,300 square feet, there are four bedrooms, four bathrooms, an open floorplan, master suites on the first and second levels, and water views throughout. The 0.94-acre property boasts 150 feet of beachfront on Noyack Bay, a bocce court, and room for a pool.
The property is represented by Rima Mardoyan Smyth and Ryan Struble from Douglas Elliman, Mala Sander from Corcoran, and Beate Moore from Sotheby’s International Realty.
