Life Savers Heiress lists East Hampton home for $72M

The most expensive property to hit the Hamptons market this year is being sold by the estate of June Noble Smith Larkin Gibson, whose father Edward J. Noble was a founder of the candy company Life Savers, as well as the television network ABC. Ms. Gibson, a philanthropist, died in June at age 98. The classic shingle style house was designed by architects George Nelson and Gordon Chadwick and built around 1955 on 5 sprawling oceanfront acres.

The home is sited on just over 5 acres, so that’s roughly $14.4 million an acre!

The midcentury modern house was designed in 1955 by George Nelson and Gordon Chadwick, architects for prominent art collector Otto Spaeth and his wife, Eloise. Located in the Further Lane vicinity, the house combines abstract elements including a second floor viewing porch with stunning views of the Atlantic ocean. Formal and informal living rooms each with fireplace, five bedrooms, five baths plus finished basement. A total of 5.2 acres with 333′ ocean frontage including double dune formation with impressive elevation and storm protection. Secluded and tranquil, the property is level and very wide. Build-ability: gross floor area 12,209 square feet.
