Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts List Hamptons Spread

SELLERS: Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts
LOCATION: Amagansett, NY
PRICE: $5,850,000
SIZE: 6,061 square feet, 6 bedrooms, 7.5 bathrooms

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: As was first sussed out by the eagle-eyed kids at Curbed, Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts hoisted their tastefully dressed Hamptons hideaway, tucked behind high hedges on a leafy lane in the low-key but none-the-less ferociously high-priced hamlet of Amagansett, on the market with a $5.85 million price tag. Property records and other online resources indicate the strapping, 6’3” “Ray Donovan” star and the British-born two-time Oscar nominee (“21 Grams, “Lo imposible”) purchased the plumly situated mini-estate in September 2007 for $4.3 million and current listing details show the classically shingled cottage, conveniently situated on two-thirds of an acre that’s walking distance to town and a brief bike ride to the beach, measures in at 6,061-square-feet with six bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms.

A somewhat dizzying, multi-gable vaulted ceiling and over-sized sash windows that drop nearly to the medium brown semi-glossy hardwood floors are joined in the casually furnished formal living room by a bluestone-faced fireplace and a cushioned built-in window seat lined — as are the room’s roll-armed sofas — with a bevy of colorful but muted, multi-patterned pillows. The formal dining room, on the other hand, has a flat, coffered ceiling over a rustic trestle table surrounded by ten rivet-accented Louis-the-Something-Something-style chairs that appear to be upholstered with humble burlap that is perhaps more likely a less scratchy silk-woven linen. The neighboring kitchen mixes unpretentious bead board back splashes and simple if, no doubt, custom Shaker style cabinetry with polished slab marble counter tops and a full array of high-quality stainless steel appliances that include not just one but two dishwashers. In addition to the four-seat snack counter integrated into the center work island, the kitchen opens to a sunny breakfast nook. A family room, with the same sort of almost head-spinning, multi-gabled ceiling as in the formal living room and cozily furnished with pillow laden and blanket draped sofas, is dressed down with dove grey painted barn-paneled walls, a towering river rock fireplace, simple bamboo shades, and French doors to the swimming pool. Located for maximum seclusion in a separate upstairs wing accessible by a private staircase, the wood-floored master suite offers a spacious bedroom with vaulted ceiling, French doors that open to a private veranda, a dressing area with built-in window seat, and a bead board-paneled bathroom fitted with twin pedestal sinks, a soaking tub for two, and a separate shower space. Another wing provides children and/or guests three en suite bedrooms set above two more bedrooms that share a Jack ‘n’ Jill bathroom. Listing details suggest a basement level has plenty or room for a media room, gym and game room — it’s unclear if the basement has been built out — and the house is ringed lush, hedge-girdled gardens and flat, emerald-green lawns while the swimming pool is surrounded by bluestone terracing. A vine-draped poolside pergola has an outdoor fireplace and the fully heated and cooled pool/guesthouse off of which the pergola extends includes a lounge with fireplace and full bathroom.

The unmarried, New York City-based couple keeps a bi-coastal portfolio of multi-million dollar private residences. In Los Angeles, they continue to own a 4,410-square-foot residence with guesthouse in the Brentwood area that she acquired in June of 2004 — not long before she and Mister Schreiber hooked up — for $4.205 million from Sally Field. They ever so briefly attempted to sell the comfortably luxurious property on the open market in 2010 at $5.995 million before they made it available for lease the following year — and the year after that — at $20,000 per month. The Schreiber-Watts’ lower Manhattan holdings include a relatively modest 1,367-square foot condo in the NoHo ‘hood that was purchased by him in 1998 for a smidgen more than $566,000 as well as several contiguous condos in a discreet 1920s building in Tribeca that they picked up in two transactions almost exactly two years apart. The first purchase, in the last days of 2011 for $3.7 million, included two loft-style apartments that occupy an entire floor and comprise 4,315 square — we assume the units have been merged — and two years later they coughed up another $2,075,000 for another unit of unknown size directly below the other two and that we also assume without any direct knowledge the couple incorporated into their upstairs digs.
