Julianne Moore, Bart Freundlich Sell Montauk Cottage

authorStaff Writer on Mar 31, 2021

Oscar-winning actress Julianne Moore and husband Bart Freundlich, a film director, screenwriter and producer, have sold their waterfront Montauk cottage for $2.85 million.

At 42 Second House Road, the 1,000-square-foot “Zen-like cottage” on 0.7 acre fronting Fort Pond has three bedrooms and one bathroom, a screened sun porch and a brick fireplace. The western boundary is shared with a nature preserve.

Ms. Moore and Mr. Freundlich purchased the property in 2007 for $1.05 million. The home was renovated the following year and a saltwater gunite pool and a pool house were added. In 2015, they listed it for $3.5 million, but there were no takers.

The property was most recently listed for sale in September 2020 for $2.85 million — and fetched exactly its asking price.

Ms. Moore and Mr. Freundlich met during the making of 1997’s “The Myth of Fingerprints,” which she starred in and he wrote, produced and directed. The film centers on a dysfunctional family’s Thanksgiving and was Mr. Freundlich’s feature debut. Their most recent feature together was “After the Wedding,” which he wrote and directed, she starred in, and they both produced.

Ms. Moore won the Academy Award for Best Actress for 2014’s “Still Alice,” in which she played a woman with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease opposite Alec Baldwin, who played her husband. The film’s U.S. premiere occurred at Guild Hall in East Hampton as the closing night film of the Hamptons International Film Festival.

The deal for 42 Second House Road closed on February 5, according to The Real Estate Report Inc. The new owner’s identity is shielded by a limited liability company.
