Listowel, a 6.9-acre Water Mill estate fronting Mecox Bay with farm fields on the three other sides, recently sold for $29 million.

The New York Post reported that the buyer was Chris Burch, the billionaire developer and resort owner who is also the ex-husband of Tory Burch and the co-founder of her eponymous luxury apparel brand.

Back in 2019, Listowel, at 258 Horsemill Lane, was seeking $29.5 million, and last summer, the English country-style estate was offered for rent at $350,000 per month.

Listowel was designed and built by a team comprising architect Kathleen McCoy, Men at Work Construction, landscape architect Quincy Hammond and interior designer Daniel Romualdez, with wall finishes by Torie Burke and color by Donald Kaufman.

The main house is a shingle-style traditional with 12,000 square feet of living and entertainment space and complemented by formal gardens. According to the listing, the estate took five years to complete and includes 360 feet of waterfront.

A two-story library with a fireplace is near the front entry, and the living room with a fireplace has three sets of French doors that open up to the covered porch. A smoking room has a bay window and a set of French doors onto the eastern-facing covered porch.

On the west side is the formal dining room with French doors, a fireplace, and hand-painted chinois wallpaper. The butler’s pantry leads to the stainless-steel chef’s kitchen with walk-in pantry and top-of-the-line appliances. The adjacent gathering room includes four sets of French doors opening to the trellis-covered outdoor living room with a stone fireplace.

Upstairs, the master suite takes up the southeastern wing. It has a bedroom with vaulted ceilings, a fireplace and French doors that lead to a south-facing balcony with bay and ocean views. The marble master bathroom has radiant-heat floors and views of farm fields and beyond. Two walk-in closets round out the master suite.

The upper floor also includes three more en-suite bedrooms with vaulted ceilings and marble baths, and a “tower study” with a fireplace and water views.

The attached guest cottage has an informal living area with a fireplace, a painting studio, a second-floor en suite bedroom and access to the outdoor spa.

In addition to the attached guest cottage is a separate carriage house.

The grounds boast a heated gunite pool, an allée of sycamore trees, a rose garden, an orchard of 60-year-old apple trees, a potager, flower cutting gardens, dry stacked stone walls and gravel walkways, and specimen mature trees and plantings laid out in the English garden style design, with room for a tennis court, the listing states.

A nature path leads to the water with a large dock for motorboats and kayaks.

Erica Grossman of Douglas Elliman and Tim Davis of The Corcoran Group had the listing, and Mr. David brought the buyer.

The land last changed hands in 2004 for $12.5 million, according to town property records, and the current house received its building permits in 2008.

Thiele: Concerns About Eligibility To Collect Advances For Seasonal Rentals Are Easily Remedied

The New York State Association of Realtors has raised concerns that some homeowners will not benefit from a new law that allows landlords to collect rent for the entire season upfront, but the legislation’s author explained Friday how landlords and municipalities can easily meet the law’s eligibility requirements. In September, Governor Kathy Hochul signed into law Assemblyman Fred W.

A few requirements must be met in order for landlords to take advantage of that exemption. Tenants must occupy the rental unit ... 16 Nov 2021 by Brendan J. O’Reilly
