Model and actress Christie Brinkley put her waterfront North Haven home up on the market in 2016 for $25 million. After just over two years, the 19th century house has found a buyer and is currently pending a sale.
The shingled cottage offers 1,650 square feet of living space, three bedrooms, and two and a half bathrooms. Features include hardwood floors in the communal spaces, a wide open eat-in kitchen with a stove, and beamed cathedral ceilings in the living room.
The handsome modern farmhouse-style home first came on the market in February of 2017 for $4.25M, but over the next almost two years the price steadily came down. When a contract was signed at the end of November 2018, the property was listed for $3.25M.
Arranged with an upside-down floorplan so the living and dining rooms are on the second floor and the bedrooms are on the ground level, water views are maximized throughout the home and can be found in every bedroom.
After purchasing the house in 2006, the current owners totally renovated the kitchen, installed the hardwood floors in the dining room to match the living room, and replaced the original sliders with French doors.
Sited on 1.2 acres of land, the 5,200-square-foot house has six bedrooms and seven and a half bathrooms. Interior features include a floating staircase with glass railings, hardwood floors, built-ins, and an open floorplan.
Sited on a quarter acre, there are two buildings on the property, and three certificates of occupancy. Inside the main house, there are two separate apartments, while the cottage in the back of the property has its own private deck and garden.
When we first featured the property in June, our readers thought it was listed for too high, but it sold for relatively close to the original asking price. What do you think of the home? Tell us in the comments.
Originally built in 1969, the compact 1,000-square-foot home now features light hardwood floors, white walls, cathedral ceilings, a wide open floorplan, and a wall of windows off the living and dining space.
