“Sex and the City” star Kim Cattrall is letting go of her serene retreat in East Hampton, NY. She’s asking $3.25 million for the bayfront home.
The actress purchased the property in 1998 for $420,000, so her investment has shown some serious appreciation.
“Kim has owned it for a while, and it is time for her to turn the page and simplify a bit,” says listing agent Rebekah Baker, with Sotheby’s International Realty East Hampton Brokerage. “She has her mom out West, and I think she wants to be closer to her.”
Baker adds that Cattrall’s touches are visible throughout. “She did everything to this property. It is perfectly curated by her with beautiful gardens with tall grasses and bluestone walkways leading up to a home that has dimension and nooks to relax in, and yet it is open to the impressive water views. Decks at the back to view the water and a deck at the front to view the gardens.”
For the inner artist, there’s a separate building to channel such inclinations.
“She has an incredible studio in the middle of the property to get away further and pursue creative pursuits like writing the three books she wrote while living here,” says Baker. The studio could be converted into a home gym or guest quarters.
Set behind a gate and overlooking Gardiners Bay, the property offers seclusion and a “laid-back waterfront lifestyle,” the listing notes.
The 1,300-square-foot main house features an L-shape living and dining area, which includes a wood-burning fireplace and a wall of water-facing windows. The living room doubles as a screening room with a projector and motorized screen that descends from the ceiling.
The high-end kitchen opens to a patio and dining area outside. The floor plan includes two bedrooms, plus a loft, as well as 2.5 baths. The detached studio with walls of windows includes a half-bath.
The large lot offers professionally landscaped grounds, with grassy areas, mahogany decks, and walkways, as well as a waterside fire pit and a hot tub with water views. Stone pavers lead to the bay.
The actress also owns a fabulous and fashionable apartment on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Featured in Architectural Digest, the posh pad she redesigned is filled with finds from the Paris flea market and artwork from galleries in Europe
Cattrall is best known for her role as Samantha Jones on the popular HBO series “Sex and the City,” for which she won a Golden Globe as well as two ensemble Screen Actors Guild awards. She also reprised the role for the two spinoff movies. The film, stage, and TV star most recently appeared in the lead role of the TV series “Filthy Rich” on Fox, which debuted this fall.
