East Hampton’s Springs General Store on the Market for $2.9M
The Springs General Store in East Hampton has just come on the market with a $2.9 million asking price and an interesting connection to late famed resident, Jackson Pollock. According to the Sotheby’s listing, the artist neighbor was a regular customer and once even “settled his grocery bill with a painting,” which is now hanging in the establishment. (It’s very possible that it’s just a copy, though.)
Ferris Talmage also included the local meeting place in his book published in 1970, The Springs.
Dating back to 1844, the 2,520-square-foot shingled building is sited on 1.3 acres of harborfront land. Features include a deli or retail space on the first floor and an apartment upstairs, plus a two-car garage. When it was originally built in the mid-19th century, it served as a post office and general store.
Sotheby’s International Realty agents Tina Plesset, Phelan Wolf, and Kammy Wolf represent the listing.
