Luann de Lesseps of Real Housewives of New York put her 2,500-square-foot waterfront home on the market for $6.25 million. A friend told the New York Post that the onetime countess wants to move to the Catskills. De Lesseps bought the home, which was built in 1835, in 2013 for $2.43 million before updating the interiors. It features four bedrooms, four bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen and a dock. Christopher Burnside of Brown Harris Stevens is handling the listing. [New York Post]

Wainscott development freeze extended 6 months
The East Hampton Town Board voted last week to extend a moratorium on development in Wainscott until November, the East Hampton Star reported. The freeze began in November 2016 for properties zoned for central business or industrial uses as well as residential parcels that are not being used for residential purposes. Officials mean for the freeze to allow for an ongoing study that could lead to zoning changes and other policies affecting development. [East Hampton Star]

Tweaks made to plans for $8M East Hampton senior center
Engineers submitted adjusted plans for the East Hampton Town Senior Center, 27 East reported. Initial plans by Bohemia-based engineers Savik & Murray for the 18,700-square-foot facility drew concerns from some board members that it was too big. The new plans expand the use of the facility’s basement space for storage and lower the roofline on areas of building. The adjusted plans, which board members said are still very rough, haven’t been made public.“I don’t think this has been public enough, and I’d like to hear some real public input on the issue,”  a councilman Jeffrey Bragman said.
