An iconic Victorian in Water Mill that has been dubbed "Witch’s Hat" has sold for $1.8 million, according to the agencies involved in the real estate deal.
Pamela Bell, who runs a social advocacy design brand called Prinkshop and was an original partner at Kate Spade, purchased the four-bedroom home from interior designer Richard Keith Langham, says Brian Hagadorn, an agent with Douglas Elliman Real Estate. Langham had renovated the home after purchasing it 18 years ago for $795,000, according to public records.
Hagadorn, who worked with Bell on the deal, says she wanted a Victorian and only viewed one other property before deciding to purchase Langham’s home, which features coral shutters. She plans to use the property’s pool house as a studio, says Hagadorn.
“She was looking for something a little different,” Hagadorn says. “She appreciated what Keith had done to keep its character.”
Langham named the home "Witch's Hat" to pay homage to its black 1884 Queen Anne-style turret, says Ginger Thoerner of Compass, who listed the property with Debby Koster.
