Christie Brinkley is working the real estate market.
The supermodel and burgeoning wine maker currently has two of the Hamptons’ most remarkable homes up for sale at the same time, for a combined $55 million in available real estate. The properties, located in North Haven and Bridgehampton and both represented by Enzo Morabito of Douglas Elliman, are less than 8 miles apart.
The Bridgehampton house first came up for sale in July 2016, asking $29.5 million. Brinkley gave PEOPLE a tour of the impressive compound, which is refreshingly unstuffy. Instead, the space is outfitted with personal trinkets and passion projects, like the fireplace she designed herself with stones “from the end of the beach,” she says.
The mom of three also knows the history of her family retreat. “This house is really old, it was built by the Gardiner family in 1891,” she explains. “Mrs. Gardiner, like me, loved shells and rocks, and she did the fireplace in the living room. So when I was renovating this house, I thought ‘then I should do the fireplace in the kitchen.'”
The main house and guest house, which sit on 20 acres, offer a combined 9 bedrooms and 11 baths. The property, known as Tower Hill for its 50-foot observation tower, also includes a four-car heated garage, swimming pool and private pond.
The North Haven property near the village of Sag Harbor came on the market just three months later, in October 2016, with an asking price of $25 million. It’s since been reduced to $20 million.
The picture-perfect summer getaway sits on 4.5 acres and features 327 feet of waterfront. The 5,500-square-foot, three-story house was built in 1843. The second listing popped up shortly after Brinkley split from boyfriend John Mellancamp after a year of dating.
