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.
