Spielberg Selling Land

Spielberg land

Steven Spielberg, who lives on nine acres overlooking Georgica and Lily Ponds and straddling Apaquogue and West End Roads in East Hampton Village, has placed on the market a nearby 3.3-acre property he purchased six years ago for $20 million in hopes of expanding his domain. He tore down the house on the newly listed property at 94 Apaquogue Road, which he bought from a member of the Cartier jewelry family, but never built there.

His compound is separated from the land by another estate, owned by Janet Ross, widow of the late philanthropist-financier Arthur Ross, sources said. There is speculation that the movie director has purchased that parcel. The land has been for sale with an asking price of $22.5 million, according to a listing at Sotheby’s International Realty.
