Bridgehampton Oceanfront Half-Acre Has Big Plans for the Future


This is a property with an interesting history. It was owned for something like 70 years by Roz Cole, a literary agent who died in 2014. In her long career, she represented many well-known authors and actors, Andy Warhol (The Philosophy of Andy Warhol), Errol Flynn (My Wicked, Wicked Ways), Olivia de Havilland, Brendan Behan (Confessions of an Irish Rebel), Charlie Chaplin, Jr., and George Sanders. She was herself the author of many books, including cookbooks; founded and produced the magazine Cookbook Digest, was an artist who had seven one-woman exhibitions; and a horse breeder.

The daughter of literary agent Ethel Paige, Roz signed at 22 with MGM Records, which billed her as “Singing Star Rosalind Paige.” She made records, appeared on TV, and toured the country. She married her manager, Carlton Cole, who died in 1959. In 1961, Roz moved into the Waldorf-Astoria in 1961, where she became the longest residing guest at 53 years.

The property sold in 2014 after Roz’s death and has just been put up for sale again, represented by Carol Nobbs at Elliman. The asking price is $10.25 million, which includes 0.61 acre of oceanfront land, plans for a new modern home by Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects, and most importantly, all permits and approvals are in place for the new house and oceanside saline pool. (Getting approval for the oceanside pool is a coup, let’s face it.)
