A spectacular estate on Hook Pond in East Hampton -- near the almost exclusively WASP-members-only Maidstone Club -- just hit the market yesterday for $22.5 million.
The house sits on 3.1 acres at the address 42 Highway Behind the Pond. It comes with 300 feet of waterfront with a dock and is part of the Mary de Liagre estate. At 3,500 square feet, the five-bedroom home, built in 1903, is grand in a charming, old-money, non-showy kind of way. But it comes with the option of building out to 14,000 square feet. There's also a boathouse and cottage, which need work.
Actor Robert Montgomery bought it in 1959, and his then-20-year-old daughter Elizabeth, the future star of "Bewitched," enjoyed it as well. The de Liagre family has owned it since the early 1970s.
Sotheby's listing broker Ed Petrie had no comment. An unofficial open house yesterday is already the buzz of the East End.
"I have several clients anxious to see the property," says Corcoran Group broker Tim Davis.
