Tina Brown Lists Beachfront Manse in Hamptons

Last fall Tina Brown resigned her stormy post as editor-in-chief at still-not-profitable the Daily Beast, which she co-founded in 2008 with Barry Diller, in order to launch an eponymous media company, write a memoir and — as it turns out — shake up her property portfolio. A kind snitch in the Hamptons sent word by digital carrier pigeon that the vaunted and influential if occasionally controversial media maven, who previously topped the editorial mastheads at Vanity Fair and the New Yorker, has hoisted her oceanfront hideaway in the sleepy and staid community of Quogue on the open market for $11.85 million.
Property records show the New York City-based Miz Brown and her husband, veteran journalist and Conde Nast Traveler founder Sir Harold Evans, acquired the property in the fall of 1995 for $920,000, and marketing materials reveal the 2.9-acre spread lays claim to 206 feet of ocean frontage, and has a swimming pool tucked into a scrubby sylvan setting on the front side of the house. The recently rebuilt shingle-sided dune-topper spans about 5,900 square feet, with four en suite guest bedrooms plus a self-contained one-bed and one-bath guest unit. In addition to dual closets, a coffee bar, private oceanside terraces and a tiled bathroom with a power shower — whatever that is — the main floor master suite encompasses a pair of adjoining offices that flank a double-height library.
No word on whether there’s a next house in the Hamptons for the couple, who continue to own a low-floor apartment in a dignified, Rosario Candela-designed prewar building in the swank if a bit unfashionable Sutton Place area of Midtown Manhattan. The property is represented by Linda Zelin and Janet Booth of Norma Reynolds Sotheby’s Intl. Realty.
