    Actress Brooke Shields is under contract to purchase a charming Southampton hideaway for $4.3 million, as first reported by the New York Post. The owner is former NFL tight end Vyto Kab, who played for the New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles and Detroit Lions during his career.

    Beautifully renovated, the home reflects all of the charm of an historic home but comes complete with every modern convenience and amenity – perfect for Brooke and her family.

    The 1920 classic shingled home has 6 bedrooms, including a master suite with tray ceiling and fireplace, and 6 full and 2 half baths. A gourmet kitchen opens to the dining area/great room with a fireplace and French doors giving way to expansive terrace, separate formal living and dining rooms with fine wood finishes, library, state-of-the-art media room, and mud room/laundry.

    The half acre, beautifully landscaped private grounds feature specimen trees, flower and vegetable gardens, 20 x 50 freshwater heated gunite pool, and pool house with full bath, kitchenette, cathedral height living area, and laundry.

    While not beachfront like some of her Hamptons neighbors, Brooke’s new home is perfectly located in the heart of the village with immediate access to shopping, dining and ocean beaches.

    Back in the city, Brooke and her family live in an incredible townhome they overhauled and recently showed off in Architectural Digest.  In January 2012, she sold her NYC Chinatown co-op for $2.95 million.

      Brooke Shields and husband Chris Henchy have officially sold their spacious corner unit co-op at 458 Broadway for $2,950,000, according to our pals over at Curbed NY. Originally listed for $3,200,000, the new owners are getting the Chinatown property at a slight discount. Shields and Henchy (and kids) have moved over to their recently-renovated home on West 10th Street. Their new digs started out as a four-unit apartment building when purchased in 2008, but Shields and family later revealed plans to begin lengthy renovations to turn the building into a single-family mansion. Now that the renovations are done, it’s time to move in and clear out other New York City real estate inventory that’s no longer needed.

      The former Shields/Henchy co-op is an elegant and sophisticated 3-bedroom, 2 bathroom corner loft with 27-foot windows that provide stunning light throughout. The living/dining room combo has grand proportions with 11+ ceilings and a 1,500 bottle wine storage cellar. The open chef’s kitchen features custom wood cabinets, a professional 6-burner Viking stove, Subzero fridge and butcher-block island outfitted with two Subzero fridge drawers. The huge master suite has a large custom walk-in closet area and a luxurious classic-style master bath with a claw-foot tub, large glassed shower and custom double vanity. Lots of storage, beautiful original details and cabinetry throughout. The unit also comes with private basement storage, a keyed elevator and separate freight elevator.
