The late Robert Lion Gardiner’s 10,000-square-foot estate in East Hampton Village is on the market for $26.5 million. The 5.5-acre estate, which was completed in the 1930s, features 10 bedrooms and 8 baths.
When Gardiner passed away in 2004, the property was sold to a developer for $8.55 million. Subsequently, extensive renovations were made at the property, including the addition of funky modern art and neon pool lighting, all for a new price of $26.5 million. With expansive grounds, classical hedges and old-growth trees, this property evokes the glamour of another era. The property was originally built by the firm Wyeth and King.
