A few days after putting one Hamptons home on the market, model Christie Brinkley said she has taken another off.

After many years of trying, Brinkley has finally given up on selling Tower Hill, the Bridgehampton estate where she lives with son, Jack, and daughter Sailor.

"Our precious home sweet home is not for sale," Brinkley said Thursday in a statement through her assistant.

The supermodel had been asking $30 million for the spread, which has been on and off the market since 2002. The 11-bedroom, 9-bath, 1898 home on 20 acres has been at the same price since 2007.

On Thursday afternoon, the house was still listed as being for sale on The Corcoran Group's Susan Breitenbach's website as well as on Hamptons Real Estate Online. A Corcoran spokeswoman said late Thursday afternoon that the listing was being pulled from the Web.

"Market conditions are not the best for that price range," said Breitenbach, who was the exclusive broker for the property.

Brinkley said that she did "have a couple [of] nibbles" on the property, but agreed, saying, "The marketplace for large family compounds like Tower Hill may have been slow."

"Each time anyone showed interest, I would think, where else can you snowboard and cross-country ski? Find frogs in the pond? Roast marshmallows 'round the campfire? Swing from the grand old trees? Grow veggies in winter in a greenhouse? Grow sweet organic corn in the summer? Swim, play tennis or paint in an art studio? And catch every rainbow and sunset from your own romantic tower? Tower Hill is a lifestyle as much as a home sweet home for my entire extended family."
