Funnyman Mel Brooks sold his home in Water Mill last month for $5.3 million, according to the Long Island Real Estate Report. The Flying Point Road beach house is just down the street from a home owned by supermodel Christie Brinkley.
Public records show that Brooks purchased the home with his late wife, actress Anne Bancroft, for $2.995 million in 2000. The waterfront home has three bedrooms, two baths and a fireplace and sits on .74 acres. Prior to the couple’s purchase of the home, it was rented for two summers by socialites Alexander and Alexandra Von Furstenberg, published reports say.
Bancroft died in 2005. She was married to Brooks for 40 years. The pair owned property in Lonelyville on Fire Island for many years before moving to the Hamptons, where they briefly owned a home in Southampton before settling in Water Mill.
