As we catch up on writing some long-overdue items, we freely admit that we are virtually the last one to write about actress Kathleen Turner listing her six-bedroom shingled traditional-style house in Amagansett, N.Y., in the Hamptons, for $6,995,000.
In recent months, New York magazine has written on Turner putting the house back on the market after first listing it in 2005 for $7.95 million. And the Real Estalker also has weighed in with a report on the house. And of course, way back in June, Newsday's 'Rich Cribs' columnist Ellen Yan covered Turner's listing as well.
Turner, 53, paid $488,500 for the Amagansett house in 1990, Newsday reported. Built in 1903, the house, at 318 Bluff Road in Amagansett/East Hampton, overlooks a 25-acre preserve, has five and a half baths, original leaded glass windows, five fireplaces, sweeping, unobstructed ocean views from every major room, two living rooms, a den, a formal dining room, a sunroom and eat-in country kitchen with a butler's pantry, three covered porches, an open terrace, and a master suite with a wall of windows and French doors, all in about 5,000 square feet, according to listing information and Newsday. Other features include a lush, landscaped yard, a heated gunite pool, a hot tub, a pool house, and a three-car garage, according to listing information.
The property sits on exactly 1 acre, according to public records. Turner presumably is selling because she and her developer husband, Jay Weiss, have split up.
One fact that we can add that we haven't seen reported elsewhere is that Turner also owns a condominium unit on Manhattan's Upper West Side. Records show that in December 2003, through the name Kathleen T. Weiss, Turner paid an undisclosed amount for a 39th-floor unit in the building at 200 Riverside Boulevard. She previously had owned a 25th-floor unit in the building at 1965 Broadway in Manhattan, also on the Upper West Side, which she sold in early 2004 for $3.9 million, according to public records.
