The East Hampton home that belonged to Judith and Gerson Leiber, a handbag designer and modernist painter, respectively, has been put on the market for $3.9 million a year after the couple died within hours of each other, The New York Times reported. The pair bought the property at 464 Old Stone Highway in 1956 for a mere $10,000, but then launched a decades-long building campaign that created a 4,500-square-foot main house, an 860-square-foot art studio and gardens that stretch over the remainder of its 2.16 acres. Brick pathways meander through the grounds to an in-ground pool, a vegetable garden, a rose garden and an empty aviary. The main house has four bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms and three wood-burning fireplaces. The home was built in 1910, but renovated in the 1990s. The studio has towering ceilings, large windows to let in the light and an attached garage. The Times and Mansion Global note that the property is located in the East Hampton hamlet of Springs. Leslie Hillel and Judith Mendoza of Halstead have the listing. [NYT]
