Here is some big real estate news from the Hamptons! The Linden Estate, which is an iconic and historic home in Hamptons in New York, has been listed for $75 million. Harald Grant of International Realty-Southampton Brokerage of Sotheby and also Tim Davis of Corcoran are listing the nearly 10-acre property on Pasture Road in the Village of Southampton coveted Estate Section.
“Linden is located right in the heart of the Estate Section, which is surrounded by many large trees and also other magnificent estates,” Grant says. “It is probably the biggest estate on the address 160 Ox Pasture Road, and it is done in a lovely, old-world style.” This 18,000-square-foot mansion is located on nearly ten acres at Pasture Road which is located in the exclusive section of the estate.
“Very few properties can really compare in terms of acreage, incredible landscaping, the main residence size, array of incredible amenities, and, particularly the pool house conservatory,” according to Grant, whose listings, like that of Davis, are among the most luxurious and expensive on the East End.
From the original park-like landscape design of the architect, called Grosvenor Atterbury, and the Frederick Law Olmsted, most of its provenance is unrivaled. In fact, the name of the estate is derived from the specimen trees, which are lined up near the property and was inspired by Frederick Law Olmsted, who is the designer of Central Park and also known as the father of landscaping architecture.
Grosvenor Atterbury, a pioneering architect who spent the whole summer on this 80-acre estate of his family in nearby Shinnecock Hills, designed the traditional-style house along with the red-tile gambrel roof in 1915.
While he carved out niche designing homes for summer on Long Island for many wealthy families, he was also in charge of the Forest Hills Garden model housing community, which was commissioned by the foundation called Russell Sage Foundation, which was founded by a widow who is known to be the benefactor of these numerous Sag Harbor projects.
The grandeur of the design of Atterbury is still visible today, with many authentic details preserved. Total there is original massive fireplaces, 8 wood-burning fireplaces. Another grand hall will lead into the living room, which has coffered ceilings and glass doors that provide a beautiful view of the mature trees of the estate, evergreen perimeters, flowering shrubs, and rose gardens.
The unique oak walls that are lined in leather are also to be found in the library, as well as hand-carved, decorative plaster ceilings. “From the ground up and also across its magnificent grounds, the current owners must have spent years maintaining and restoring this property,” Grant says.
Now, there are 8 bedrooms, 8 full bathrooms, 3 half baths, and separate staff quarters, for a total of twelve bedrooms and 12.5 bathrooms. Another sweeping spiral staircase will lead upstairs to the master wing. It has a sitting room, sleeping quarters, a spacious walk-in closet, and also a master bathroom with mosaic tiles, a fireplace, a television, and a soaking tub.
Despite speculation that the estate was sold to Netscape founder called Jim H. Clark when it was listed for $49 million, however, the estate is even now owned by Juergen Friedrich, a former Espirit executive, and his wife called Anke Beck-Friedrich, who actually transferred it into the name of a holding company.
