Hamptons House Down the Street from Jackson Pollock’s Former Home Lists for $11.5 Million


A present day Hamptons home on the identical street as the house of the late American painter Jackson Pollock strike the market place Thursday for $11.5 million.

The 4.63-acre property is in the Springs Historic District of the Hamptons, the affluent retreat at the jap edge of New York’s Long Island. The 4-bedroom, four-bathroom residence overlooks the Accabonac Harbor and a secured estuary—the exact look at that Pollock and his artist wife Lee Krasner enjoyed—according to Sotheby’s Intercontinental Realty’s Jenny Landey, who shares the listing with Zack Dayton, also of Sotheby’s.


“It’s steeped in art background,” Ms. Landey said. “[It] is up from the Pollock-Krasner Residence. It is that see that you see that is been painted for a long time. It is the quintessential view—just type of the mild, the nature and the land.” 

Abstract expressionist painters Pollock and Krasner shared a house and innovative space in the location for more than 10 decades, with Krasner residing and doing work there part time for close to 30 more. The artist pair moved to the location in 1945, and their previous home now operates as the Pollock-Krasner House and Examine Heart, presenting displays and a peek into the artists’ life to the general public.

Constructed in 1974 by Hamilton Smith, a lover of contemporary architect Marcel Breuer, the modern day home at this time for sale has a cypress facade and delivers an open layout with wood and floor-to-ceiling windows all over, according to the listing. It also functions an expansive deck with 180-diploma vistas for viewing the water at sunset or the local osprey inhabitants, strolling paths and a visitor cottage.

The house is in fact two parcels becoming bought with each other, Ms. Landey pointed out. The modern day household is on the waterfront aspect, and the dwelling could not be crafted so shut to the harbor right now because the inexperienced space is secured. The inland parcel, on the other hand, could be an prospect for a buyer to construct new and develop a compound. 


The home is at present owned by landscape architect Edwina von Gal, who bought the residence in 2003 for $895,000, according to documents with PropertyShark. She was not instantly out there for remark. 

For the reason that it is owned by a landscape designer of such take note, it is no shock that the grounds have been planted with flowering trees and plants, as perfectly as veggies.

“The pure components and the gardens, in addition to the water… it’s just amazing,” Ms. Landey reported. “We suspect that the customer of this home  will perceive it as a get the job done of art.”
