Emmy Award-winning actress Candice Bergen is ready to part with her quintessential East Hampton bolthole after listing the spread on the far end of New York’s Long Island last week for $18 million.
Ms. Bergen and her husband, real estate developer and philanthropist Marshall Rose , own the home—which has been showcased in Architectural Digest—through an entity, property records show.
The home was built in the mid-1980s for Rose and his late first wife, Jill , according to Variety , who first reported the listing, making this its first foray onto the market.
Flooded with sunlight due to an abundance of oversized windows, the shingled cottage—a classic hallmark of estates in the Hamptons—has six bedrooms, seven bathrooms and spans roughly 4,500 square feet, according to the listing with Ed Petrie of Compass.
Mr. Petrie didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
Described in one of the aforementioned Architectural Digest features as a “tribute to the history of architecture on eastern Long Island,” the home has a number of living areas, wood-burning fireplaces and carved mantels, hardwood floors and crown molding.
Set on 1.8 acres, the estate is also home to gardens, a pool and a detached guest house.
