Rich cribs: Kathleen Turner sells for $3.9 million

Actress Kathleen Turner has finally sold her home on Bluff Road in Amagansett, according to the Long Island Real Estate Report. The sales price was $3.9 million, a little less than half the $8 million price she asked for the property in 2005. Records show that Turner purchased the home in 1990 for $488,500. The 1903 dwelling overlooks a 25-acre preserve, has six bedrooms, five fireplaces, two living rooms and original lead glass windows. Turner had reportedly made extensive renovations to the property in recent years.- LAURA MANN


GIN FIZZ. A home on ritzy Gin Lane in Southampton recently sold for $12.85 million. The 2-acre spread, originally listed for $14.75 million in 2009, boasts ocean views. It was built in 1978 and has seven bedrooms and five bathrooms and is within walking distance of two village beaches. "Gin Lane is the best of the best and will be an amazing retreat for the new owners," says Susan Breitenbach of The Corcoran Group, who brought the buyer. The listing agent was Christine Sullivan Witker of Brown Harris Stevens. - CATHY MAHON


A 'STEAL.' The asking price for Fox Hall, the 20,000-square-foot Upper Brookville mansion, has been reduced again. Once listed for $17 million, the 30-room manse is now on the market for $6.75 million. "In my opinion, it's the steal of the century," says Paul Mateyunas of Daniel Gale Sotheby's International Realty, who is listing the property. Although the house does not have central air conditioning, it has been updated throughout. The house is said to be a copy of the Scottish summer home of Bonnie Prince Charlie, the 18th century Young Pretender to the British throne. Built in 1915, the Elizabethan-style brick and half-timbered manor house is on 18.76 acres. There is a 6,500-square-foot, three-bedroom, renovated carriage house with a six-car garage and a three-bedroom cottage. According to local lore, President Theodore Roosevelt rested on the property while hunting at a spot that has come to be known as "Teddy's Rock." - VALERIE KELLOGG
