Wealthy widow Courtney Sale Ross has listed her East Hampton, NY estate for $75 million. It is a pocket listing, which means it’s not on the MLS. Dubbed “Cody House”, the estate is situated on 5.42 acres with 460 feet of Georgica Pond frontage and a dock. It features a 7500 square foot main house, a 3-bedroom guest house with barn and a small cottage. The main house features 7 bedrooms, 6 full bathrooms, patio and a swimming pool.

    It’s a beautiful setting and 5.4 acres on Georgica Pond is amazing. The interior is obviously very expensively furnished, but it looks like it needs to be updated. I loved the interior of her Park Avenue pad, but this isn’t nearly as interesting. I’m guessing someone will tear the multiple buildings down and build something massive.

      Yeah, this place is gonna be bulldozed no matter who buys it, or how much they pay for it. Not only is this in the most sought after neighborhood of the Hamptons, it’s also one of the most desirable parcels of land in that neighborhood. I think $75mil is a bit steep, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see it go for a bit over $50m. Jerry Seinfeld paid like $30 mil for his property very near this one around 2000, and he bulldozed and built a new one. Ron Barron paid $100mil for a very large parcel adjacent to one he was already building a home on, also very near this property. And he didn’t even really do much with the property in terms of construction, simply landscaped it and joined it with what he already owned. Most recently, David Tepper paid like $40 mil or so to buy Jon Corzine’s former home from the first Mrs. Corzine. Of course he bulldozed it and started from scratch. I don’t know that this will sell all that quickly, but I’d bet it sells for a bundle.

    Really can’t see the allure of living in The Hamptons. Just seems like an area that lacks character.

      maybe there’s an allure to just live there for a couple weeks/months out of the year…I’m sure the majority of people dont however

      Agreed. I don’t think I’d ever want to live there. I’d much rather live in Palm Beach, where prices are a tad lower haha

        Definitely PB but in the northeast I’d go for Greenwich. The lush trees, windy roads, old manors, etc. really appeal to me. Not some oceanfront farmland and fields.

          I believe the allure of the Hamptons is that it provides a convenient summer residence within close proximity to New York City (e.g. a house in the Hamptons could be a weekend home, if you so desired). Greenwich is not near the water and is hotter in the summer, like NYC, and Palm Beach is too far away for an impromptu commute.

            There are actually several beautiful residential areas right on the water in Greenwich; Belle Haven is a great area with amazing old mansions. But, Greenwich isn’t a resort area like the Hamptons area. The big thing about the Hamptons is that it’s a place to be seen. Greenwich is low key while the Hamptons are downright crazy on summer weekends.
