Drew Barrymore Quickly Finds Buyer for Hamptons Farmhouse

Drew Barrymore didn’t need “50 First Dates” to find a buyer for her Hamptons farmhouse.

Barrymore is offloading her place at 16 Old Barn Lane in Sagaponack only three weeks after listing the estate, the New York Post reported. The deal has yet to close, so the buyer’s identity and the purchase price are unclear, but Barrymore was asking $8.5 million, or nearly $1,241 per square foot.

Barrymore purchased the home in 2019 for $5.5 million, and then did an extensive remodeling for the 6,850-square-foot century-old house.

There are seven bedrooms and six bathrooms between the main house and the small guest cottage; several bedrooms are ensuite and some have adjoining decks and balconies. The main home also has built-in bookcases, a brick fireplace and French doors that open to the grounds.

Those grounds feature a pool, pool house, bocce ball court and multiple lounging areas, situated within a mile of the ocean.

Barrymore is known for her roles in movies such as “E.T.,” “The Wedding Singer” and “Fever Pitch,” along with the Netflix series “Santa Clarita Diet.” Since 2020, she’s hosted her own talk show on CBS, though she stirred up controversy when she tried to bring the program back on the air amid the Writers Guild of America strike, leading to a public apology. 

In April, more homes were listed in the Hamptons and the North Fork than during the same month last year, according to Miller Samuel’s report for Douglas Elliman. In the Hamptons, new listings increased 41 percent annually, rising from 92 to 130, while new signed contracts remained stagnant between the two periods.
