The onetime East Hampton home of “Caddyshack” star Chevy Chase is back on the market for $19.995 million, Behind the Hedges reported. The home at 19 Lee Avenue was built around 1899 and designed by Joseph Greenleaf Thorpe, the architect behind the iconic Grey Gardens estate in East Hampton that sold for $15.5 million in late 2017. The Lee Avenue home was owned by Chase until 2001, when he sold it for $10 million, according to Behind the Hedges. The home, which hit the market a decade ago seeking $25 million, has 12,000 square feet, 10 bedrooms, eight-and-a-half bathrooms, a wood-paneled living room, a sun room, seven fireplaces and a game room. The more than two-acre property is fully landscaped and has a pool, pool house, garage and a separate play house. The home is called the Frederick Potter House after one of the famous developer’s brothers, who commissioned Thorpe to build it a century ago. Rock star Jon Bon Jovi owns Frederick Potter’s E.C. Potter House nearby on Lily Pond Lane. Peter Turino of Brown Harris Stevens has the listing for the Lee Avenue property. [Behind the Hedges]
