We have the perfect, plush residence for those who like to couple history and art or if you’re simply an Andy Warhol fanatic.
Warhol’s former Hamptons home recently hit the market for a whopping $85 million. According to Douglas Elliman Real Estate, the Montauk property is being sold by its current owner CEO of J. Crew Mickey Drexler, who purchased it in 2007 for $27 million.
The estate was originally a fishing camp built in the 1930s by the Church family, the makers of the Arm & Hammer baking soda. Warhol purchased the estate with filmmaker Paul Morrissey in 1972 for $225,000. From 1972 to Warhol’s death in 1985, the home became the place in Montauk. Many of music heavy hitters and Hollywood’s A-listers frequent the estate. Guests included Jerry Hall, Cheryl Tiegs, Halston, Liza Minnelli, Liz Taylor, John Lennon, John Phillips, Mick Jagger, Jackie Kennedy and Lee Radziwill, to name a few.
According to the listing, the compound sits on 30 acres of land. It features nine bedrooms, 11 bathrooms and one half bathroom. It’s approximately 15,000 square feet. The estate is surrounded by miles of riding trails and hundreds of acres of adjoining oceanfront reserve. The property includes six individual cottages, which have been restored by architect extraordinaire Thierry Despont.
There is a 24-acre equestrian facility with two restored barns (combined 29 stalls) built by Carl Fisher of Miami and Montauk fame in the late 1920s. In addition, there is an existing house on four buildable acres that can accommodate extra conveniences like a pool and/or a tennis court.
Named Eothen, meaning “from the east,” the estate is close to a number of local restaurants, boutiques and attractions. Montauk Airport is just a six minute car ride away.
This ultra-posh estate offers the upmost privacy, all while being located in the hautest area in the Hamptons.
