We know. You love Jackie Bouvier Kennedy Onassis. You wanted to buy Lasata, but it was just too much money. Well, have we got a great option for you. One word: STERN’S!
Yes! The former location of Stern’s department store is (still) for sale and it just so happens that it is also the former location of the East Hampton Riding Academy, where a young Miss Bouvier rode and boarded her horse Buttercup.
Not enough history, you say? Well, it was also once a Gertz. A&P wanted to open on the site, 350 Pantigo Lane in East Hampton, but gave up due to local opposition.
The land is zoned A Residential, which does mean that limited light business use is possible. (We so need a Trader Joe’s out here, but we are resigned to it never happening.) Other ideas include affordable housing, a four-home subdivision, or one big estate. May we suggest Bouvier Acres for a name? Stern’s Meadow? Casa Gertz? (You’re welcome.) Look, here’s a sample rendering! Just slightly Photoshopped!
There’s just over 4 acres available for a mere $5 million, represented by Benjamin Dixon and Matthew Mackay of Douglas Elliman. Claiming that you found Buttercup’s horseshoe during construction? Priceless.
