Drew Barrymore, one of our all-time favorite celebs here in the Hamptons, has just listed her Sagaponack estate. The actress and talk show host bought the nearly two-acre property back in 2019 for a reported $5.5 million. Of course, she proceeded to do an extensive renovation to her own discerning taste. The original barn of the main residence was built in 1920 and has undergone numerous changes over the past century.

Listed at $14,950,000 with Erica Grossman of Douglas Elliman, the newly constructed property at 8 John Street, called Claxton House, was sure to go quickly due to its impeccable historical design and bulkheaded waterfront location directly on Sag Harbor Cove. The designer, Bryan Graybill, was a recipient of the prestigious Stanford White Award in 2021. “This is one of my all-time favorite homes that I’ve ever represented in the Hamptons. It’s truly a masterpiece of design by Bryan Graybill, and I felt fortunate to be a part of it,” Grossman told HRES.

The Capri Hotel in Southampton has entered into a joint hospitality venture with Mayank Dwivedi, owner of the renowned Maidstone Hotel in East Hampton. The Capri is co-owned by celebrity attorneys Mark Geragos and Tina Glandian. In addition, a new restaurant, Ketchy Shuby, which also has an outpost in NYC, will be opening at the hotel. It’s the creation of Jamie Mulholland who bought the Surf Lodge. Brown Harris Stevens brokers Tony Cerio and Mitch Natter represented the Capri and had this to say: “The combination of Dwivedi/Geragos and Mulholland will without a doubt make the Capri the go-to place this upcoming season.” The Capri had been on the market at one point for $29 million.
