British-born Canadian-American television, film and stage actor Kim Cattrall, best known for her portrayal of sex-positive bombshell Samantha Jones on the HBO series “Sex and the City” (1998-2004), which earned her five Emmy nominations, has her modest and charming (if hardly inexpensive) waterfront hideaway in a woodsy and relaxed area of the tony resort town of East Hampton, N.Y., up for grabs with a $3.25 million price tag. With anywhere near a full-price sale, the sultry star, who co-wrote the 2002 book “Satisfaction: The Art of the Female Orgasm” with her then third husband, audio engineer Mark Levinson, and currently stars as the ruthless matriarch of a backstabbing Christian televangelist family on the frothy primetime melodrama “Filthy Rich,” stands to earn a small fortune on the property that she bought more than 30 years ago, over the summer of 1998, for $420,000.

Listings held by Rebekah C. Baker at Sotheby’s International Realty show there’s about 1,300 square feet between a cedar-shingled two-bedroom and two-and-a-half bathroom cottage and detached studio/guesthouse that offers another half bathroom. Hidden from the picturesque lane behind a high fence and mature plantings, the long, slender, .4-acre spread looks across the smooth, deep-blue waters of Gardiner’s Bay to Gardiner’s Island, one of the largest privately owned islands in the United States and currently owned by Alexandra Creel Goelet, a descendant of the Gardiner family who purchased the six-mile-long island in 1639 from the chief of the native Montaukett tribe.
