Three Times' a (Hamptons) Charm for SJP and Broderick
"Sex in the City" star Sarah Jessica Parker and husband Mathew Broderick are amassing a Hamptons compound.
The dynamic duo has added a third home to their Hamptons, Long Island portfolio, reveals the New York Post
. The couple purchased their first two neighboring oceanfront homes in Amagansett for $4.6 million and $2 million. The latest property, also in Amagansett, was quietly snapped up in 2008 for $5.8 million.
The couple, who last June became the parents of twin daughters and have a son James, also own properties in Manhattan's West Village and in County Donegal, Ireland.
The couple (they really need a nickname.... can we call them Mathra? SJ-Bro?) has been a Hamptons fixture for years. They are frequently spotted around town in the summer --- at the beach or dining at the Golden Pear eatery. And Broderick is currently shooting "Beach Lane," an NBC pilot set in the Hamptons about a newspaperman hired by a millionaire to run an East End paper.
There are no details yet about the new home. But their 19th-century Amagansett farmhouse, recently featured in Elle Decor, has a cozy and relaxed vibe. "It was important that the house not be too precious. We didn't want anything stuffy or showy," Parker told Elle Decor
, The actress best known for her expensive shoe fetish is actual rather thrifty. She decorated the home with antiques from thrift stores and items from IKEA. "We wanted color and light, and comfort, comfort, comfort," she added.
Parker, who has described her childhood with seven siblings as "Dickensian," will no doubt have plenty of that.
