Fashion Designer Elie Tahari Asks $45M for Sagaponack Spread
Elie Tahari is a ready-to-wear fashion designer whose chic creations can be found in upscale department stores like Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales and Saks Fifth Avenue. His innovative fashion sense is reflected in his gated oceanfront Hamptons home, which, although previously available for rent, has just been put on the market for the first time ever.
According to Curbed, the Sagaponack property has been listed for an astounding $44,995,000 considering it only clocks in at 4,500 square-feet. The three-bedroom, two-bath estate sits on 2.5 oceanfront acres with 250 feet of direct ocean frontage.
A restored century-old barn with beamed cathedral ceilings and sleek modern finishes, the home also features a full chef’s kitchen, roll-up glass door to the backyard and grand wall of windows in the main room.
A private balcony off the master suite offers a serene space to wake up in the morning or watch the sun go down in the evening. Outside, a lap pool and direct beach access create the perfect Hamptons retreat.
What might sweeten the deal for potential buyers is that an expansion plan has already been designed by Stelle LoMont Rouhani Architects and approved by the village zoning board. New owners could turn the more modest sized home into a 10,000 square-foot structure with eight bedrooms—which is what the architects who recently completed Calvin Klein's oceanfront home have designed.
Keith Green and Ann Ciardullo of Sotheby’s International Reality have the listing.
The large main room contains a dining area, living space, and the kitchen. The roll-up glass door is like a clear garage door that opens to pure Hamptons bliss.
Stainless steel appliances and chic marble countertops contrast rustic wood beams in the kitchen.
The master bedroom provides pristine views of the ocean whether you are waking up in bed or sunbathing on the terrace.
The modern master bath displays Tahari's masterful design skills with unexpected combinations of texture and color.
A picturesque outdoor dining space and seating area offers a laid-back environment to entertain guests and relax in the sun.
