Less than a month after former ‘Real Housewives of New York‘ cast member Kelly Bensimon listed her East Hampton mansion for $12 million, she’s already price-chopped the property by a third. The new asking price for the two-story, 5,800 square-foot, five-bedroom home is $8 million.
Bensimon’s up-for-grabs Hamptons spread is an amazing property, located south-of-the-highway on prestigious Further Lane, most known for its celebrity residents and proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, Maidstone Country Club and East Hampton Village. According to the listing, the traditional-style home is “the perfect blend of chic city design mixed with Hamptons comfort and charm.”
The custom interior boasts 5,800 square feet of entertaining space, featuring a sun-filled formal living room with fireplace and French doors, a luxurious master suite with fireplace and private terrace leading to a bonus office or guest space, and a sleek stainless steel kitchen, which opens up to a spacious family room with fireplace and dining area. Additional amenities include vaulted ceilings showcasing rustic wood beams, powder room, den, extensive decking, and an oversized versatile bonus room with potential for additional guest space. Outdoors, the picturesque 1.2 acre grounds offers magazine worthy landscaping, a heated gunite pool and a charming pond.
