The expansive Linden Estate in Southampton NY is back again in the market for $69.95 million. It was seen in the co-listing of Sotheby’s International Realty [Harald Grant] and Corcoran [Tim Davis]. There is a rumor that this historic home was sold to Jim Clark [founder of Netscape] some years ago when the property listed for $49 million stayed on the market for 4 years. Haute Living Magazine had also covered the home tour journey by Clark and his wife but surprisingly the deal was not closed. After a year, the home once again was listed for sale at $45 million.
Juergen and Beck Friedrich still own the Linden Estate in Southampton NY but they transferred it into a holding company. They bought the estate in 2002 for approximately $8.5 million. They listed it for sale in 2008 for $ 60 million but could not sell it. Therefore, they rented the property at $850,000 per month, which popped back for sale for $45 million in 2013. The history of this Linden Estate is interesting and can become a dream home for some affluent and wealthy investors.
Till today, people can experience the grandeur of architect Atterbury’s designing in preserved authentic details even after the entire property is renovated to its original magnificence.
