In 2007, Moore and Freundlich purchased their picturesque Montauk home for $1.05 million. However, in 2015, the couple reportedly found an inebriated stranger asleep on their couch and quickly vacated the premises. The couple soon after purchased a more protected and gated mansion in town and their former cottage was listed on the market at an asking price of $3.5 million. After a year, the home was taken off the market before being relisted in the fall of 2020. As the pandemic spurred a real estate rush in the Hamptons, Moore and Freundlich finally secured a buyer for their cottage home at a price of $2.85 million.
The humble 1,000 square foot Montauk abode spans a half-acre of land and overlooks Fort Pond. With three bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms, the charming home highlights a farmhouse aesthetic with antique barn-wood floors and a wood-burning fireplace. The cozy living area includes a painted brick fireplace and built-in shelves. The eat-in kitchen features butcher block counters, open shelving, and a wall of windows offering a scenic view of the bordering nature preserve. The three bedrooms offer versatile space as they can be converted into guest beds or an office. The full bathroom includes a claw-foot tub, separate shower, and checkerboard flooring. Stepping outside, the outdoor space offers dining and lounging areas perfect for summer. Over the years, Moore and Freundlich have renovated the property to include a saltwater pool and pool house. The picturesque home rests near the ocean beach and village where paddle boarding, swimming, and sailing activities are available straight from the backyard.
