Sandy Gallin (Still) Selling Hamptons Compound

Hollywood heavyweight turned high-end house-flipping interior designer Sandy Gallin hasn’t yet sold his romantically picturesque compound along a particularly posh lane in East Hampton, N.Y. The price is $22.5 million, after first coming to market nearly four years ago at $24.5 million. Gallin, who has outfitted homes for Jeffrey Katzenberg, Jimmy Iovine, and Irving Azoff, bought the property in the summer of 2011 for $5.1 million and spent more than a year, and, unquestionably, a considerable fortune, on a comprehensive renovation and expansion.

The comfortably unpretentious, yet unapologetically luxurious, spread spans more than two acres, anchored by a rambling, shingled farmhouse of about 6,500 square feet. Living and entertaining spaces are done up in Gallin’s signature style — sumptuous slip-covered sofas, reclaimed materials such as antique floorboards, and artwork hung in rigid grids — and include ample living and dining rooms, a cook’s kitchen with slab-marble countertops and, of course, a state-of-the-art screening room. There are four en suite bedrooms in the main house and a total of nine full and two half bathrooms divided between the main house, guest cottage, pool house, garage, and a barn converted to a gym. Lush and idyllic grounds provide a pergola-shaded terrace with fireplace, an al fresco dining patio, apple orchards, flowering gardens, and a stone-edged swimming pool set into a thick carpet of emerald-green lawn.

Gallin previously owned a 14-acre estate in Bridgehampton that he first listed in 2009 for $32 million, but didn’t sell until 2011 for $17.5 million. His last project in Los Angeles, at least as far as this property gossip knows, was a Bel-Air mansion, long owned by late actress Jane Wyatt, which he picked up in 2007 for $7 million. He renovated and expanded the property, put it up for sale in 2009 at $32 million, and finally sold it in 2011 for $21 million to fashion magnate Serge Azria. Gallin’s East Hampton compound is represented by Linda Haugevik at Douglas Elliman Real Estate.

    It is very nice. However is it not the goal of a house flipper to get on to your next project? She does not need the cash, but the market is sinking quickly. Cut the cord honey…drop the price.
