Skateboarding on Springs-Fireplace Road? Such activity is not advisable on that narrow, twisting thoroughfare in the Town of East Hampton, but it could happen now that James Jebbia—founder of the clothing and skateboard company Supreme—and his wife, Bianca, are residents. It was reported recently that the couple purchased 856 Springs-Fireplace Road for $5,500,000.

The residence features 5 bedrooms, 5 baths, a restaurant-quality kitchen that opens to a dining area, and several sitting areas, all surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows and doors, plus a 2-space attached garage. We’re told that “the pool setting is serene and the patio is welcoming,” and the house is down a long driveway on Accabonac Harbor. Built in 2008, a big perk is the 4,570-square-foot manse sits on 2.55 acres right by the harbor.

Mr. Jebbia, who was born in the United States but grew up in England, opened the first Supreme shop on Lafayette Street in Manhattan in 1994. It was designed with skateboarders in mind, with clothes arranged around the perimeter of the store and skaters allowed to skate in the large, open central space. It was a full decade before the next Supreme location opened, this one on North Fairfax Avenue in Los Angeles, which features an indoor skate bowl. There are now 11 locations, which include ones in Paris and London, and six in Japan.

No mystery that Mr. Jebbia and his wife bought harbor-front property in East Hampton within the last couple of months: In October, it was announced that the Supreme label had sold a roughly 50-percent stake to the private equity firm the Carlyle Group for around $500 million.
