After the arrival of her third child, Ellen Pompeo realized the family had outgrown their summer retreat in Sag Harbor, NY. She listed the Hamptons hideaway for $3.8 million. Two years later, the stylish farmhouse was sold for $2,995,000.
The actress bought the place in 2011 for $925,000, property records show. After tearing down the existing cabin, she built this exquisite 2,400-square-foot home in 2013. It’s rustic on the outside and refined and modern inside.
This incredible three-story, five-bedroom, four-bathroom home with a pool sits tucked away on more than 8 acres.
The lowest level includes a media room and storage space. The main floor has the living room, master suite, and glassed-in dining porch overlooking a heated gunite pool and lawn. A private staircase leads to a third-story, en suite guest room.
Highlights of the interior spaces include a double-height ceiling in the living room, cozy fireplaces, and a roomy country-style kitchen.
So what attracted the new buyers to this property? Their representative, Martha Gundersen of Douglas Elliman, says they simply fell in love.
“The buyer loved the privacy and uniqueness of the house,” Gundersen explains. “They wanted something beautiful and turnkey. They had initially been looking for something close to the ocean, but this property was too special to pass up.”
Pompeo recently signed on for two more seasons of “Grey’s Anatomy,” which was unsurprisingly renewed for a Season 17 by ABC, making her the star of one of the longest-running shows in TV history.
Pompeo and husband Chris Ivery have bought and sold an impressive portfolio of real estate, including an oceanfront retreat in Malibu, CA, a mansion in L.A.’s Los Feliz neighborhood, and a Spanish-style villa in L.A.’s Hollywood Hills, which was sold in June 2018 for $2,765,000, according to property records.
