I want to be Christie Brinkley when I grow up because she always looks like she’s loving life and having a great time.
And oh, yeah, because she gets to live here, in Bridgehampton’s historic Tower Hill estate.
The romantic shingled house was built in 1891 with a 50-foot observation tower and ocean views. She’s downsizing now that her kids are grown, so let’s take a look inside!
Christie Brinkley’s “Tower Hill” Estate
She posted this photo of herself with daughter Sailor outside the house on Instagram
and wrote, “Brinkley Moving Company. We Get the Job Done!”
Christie’s Pretty Blue Kitchen
She designed the fireplace with rocks found on the Sag Harbor beach.
I got a kick out of Christie’s character Gayle Gergich on “Parks & Rec.” She posted this throwback on IG:
The listing for Tower Hill says:
“On 3 single and separate lots, totaling 20+/- acres, and views spanning to the Atlantic Ocean and Connecticut Shore, resides “Tower Hill,” a family compound estate like no other in the Hamptons.
“Dreamed up by local nobility, Dr. John Gardiner in 1891, and restored with meticulous care by a well-known celebrity and her family, the property offers a 4-bedroom, 5-bath main house sitting on a base of 475 tons of local rock, with an astonishing 50′ observation tower.
“All this is enveloped by park-like land, meandering lawns, beautiful old specimen trees, winding walking paths, hills for winter sledding, a surprising private pond, a hidden tennis court, and of course an oversized heated Gunite pool with spa.”
Christie posted this photo of the tower on Instagram:
She wrote, “Our home Tower Hill was built by J. Lion Gardiner of The Gardiner Family of Gardiners Island in 1891. The tower was put on the house so they could keep an eye on their island that was granted to them by the then King Edward the VII of England as their own sovereign domain. We use the tower to delight in sunsets, rainbows, meteor showers full moons, storms, and stargazing.”
It’s a pretty special property. It would be hard to give it up! For more photos and information, check the listing and video tour with Enzo Morabito of Douglass Elliman. Read more about it at Variety and the NY Post.
