At the end of January, we got all worked up when we heard that Courtney Sale Ross, widow of Time Warner kingpin Steven J. Ross, had slapped her $75 million Hamptons home on the market. At the time, it was a pocket listing -- not open to the public. What must this place look like, we wondered. Well, Ross' monstrous home has now officially hit the market publicly -- and we're still left wondering.
There are a few photos of the 7,500-square-foot beachside behemoth via the Sotheby's International Realty listing, but they don't give us a sense at all of the home's grandiosity. Don't you just hate that? Recently, Manhattan's priciest penthouse -- the late investor Martin Zweig's $125 million triplex atop the Pierre Hotel -- came on the market after a firestorm of media hype. And all we got for that was eight photos' worth of eye candy. What's up with that?
Anyway, we digress. The Real Estalker first reported the public listing of the seven-bedroom, six-bathroom home in the elite Georgica Pond neighborhood near East Hampton, N.Y. It's nicknamed "The Cody House," after a nickname for Steven Ross. According to Realty Today, Steven Spielberg, Kelly Klein and Harry Macklowe are among the celebs populating the beachfront community.
The sale of the 5.42-acre property, which includes a three-bedroom guesthouse and a kidney-shaped swimming pool, seems to be Courtney Ross' latest effort to downsize. Last year, she sold her 20-room condo at 740 Park Ave. in Manhattan for $52.5 million. Well, that must have been a weight off her shoulders. We wish we could tell you more about her Hamptons estate -- and why she should be so bold as to ask $75 million for it -- but alas, details are slim.
