Reality star and cocktails mogul Bethenny Frankel has purchased Morning Glory House in Bridgehampton, which is a former B&B. Right on Montauk Highway, the property is ideally suited to becoming a B&B again. Is Bethenny planning to become an innkeeper? Town & Country agent Kathleen Conway, who brokered the sale, told Newsday, “The residence could be a bed-and-breakfast again with permits from Southampton Town.” Conway says, “Bethenny was fabulous to work with and saw the property as a great investment.”
Bethenny, one of the Real Housewives of New York City, is clearly bullish on Bridge: she purchased a summer home close by on Lumber Lane a couple of years ago.
Built in 1910 as a family home, the most recent ask for Morning Glory House was $2.495 million. The house offers seven bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms. There’s not a lot of land, at 0.6 of an acre, but there are nice bluestone patios and a gunite pool.
The home underwent a major renovation under architect Brian O’Keefe of BOKA, who modernized and update the place. Personally, we find it a bit dull in the listing photos, but Bethenny has good taste, so we hope she’ll add some interesting touches.
