A vacant 2.7-acre parcel on Georgica Pond in East Hampton — with some famous neighbors — is being offered for the first time.
The property at 18 Jones Creek Lane was listed last week for $11.75 million in a co-exclusive with Town & Country Real Estate’s Linda Batiancela and Douglas Elliman Real Estate’s Martha Gundersen and Paul Brennan.
It is one of the few remaining lots on Georgica Pond, a private getaway for the rich and famous. Beyoncé and Jay-Z are not far away on Briar Patch Lane, a mansion they bought in 2017 for $25.9 million. Steven Spielberg and Ronald Perelman also live nearby.
The vacant parcel on Jones Creek Lane offers approximately 300 feet of frontage directly on the pond. Located next to the Fulling Mill Farm Preserve, the lot is just under a mile from the ocean. It is the perfect setting, according to the listing, to create “a serene, private, and bucolic” estate.
Plans and renderings created by renowned architect Richard Meier are available for buyers — Meier’s daughter, Ana Meier, is listed as the owner of the land. According to The Real Deal, the architect bought the land in 1972 and later transferred it to his daughter.
Meier’s plans call for a modern, 9,000-square-foot home — the calculation does not including the lower-level spaces. There is an area of natural vegetation to remain by the pond’s edge, but the property can also hold a 1,590-square-foot accessory building and swimming pool.
Of course, buyers could also come up with their design and create their “dream enclave,” Batiancela says.
