Candice Bergen Lists East Hampton Retreat for $18 Million
The cottage-style home is located on one of the most exclusive streets in East Hampton and features interiors by Cullman & Kravis
A prime address on Lily Pond Lane isn’t the only thing that Candice Bergen’s East Hampton retreat has going for it. The $18 million compound (which she shares with her developer husband, Marshall Rose) also features classic cedar shingles and nearly two acres of manicured gardens by landscape extraordinaire Edmund Hollander.
Built in the 1980s by Rose and his first wife, the 4,500-square-foot dwelling features a Dutch gambrel roof and contains six bedrooms and six-and-a-half baths. Bergen, who uses the estate to inspire her whimsical paintings and custom BergenBags, moved into the residence after marrying Rose two decades ago. The couple, whose main residence is located in Manhattan, then commissioned original builder Jaque T. Robertson to devise a comprehensive overhaul, while the light-flooded interiors were updated by Ellie Cullman of Cullman & Kravis.
“All the houses on Lily Pond remain in the old-school cottage style. It really feels like you’re in a blast from the past of what East Hampton used to be,” listing agent James Petrie of Compass told the New York Post. “That’s what people with that kind of money try to get—old-school houses in the best locations.”
In addition to mature trees and gardens planted with hollyhocks, dahlias, and snapdragons, the property comes with a cupola-topped guest house and a swimming pool with fountains.
The home is listed with Ed Petrie, James Petrie and Charles Forsman of Compass. See below for more photos.
