About Elizabeth Lee

The owners are half-Italian, half-American, and speak Italian, French and English. They have homes in northern Europe and in the south, by the Mediterranean sea.

Elizabeth Lee purchased this estate in 1987

Why Elizabeth Lee chose Water Mill

In this house, one can sense the deep Italian roots and dolce vita grandeur, with many lovely touches and welcoming comfort. It's the opposite of cold and sleek. Inside and outside, at this villa you feel the joyful spirit of la bella Italia.

What makes this estate unique

Lovely large property with beautiful landscaping. Close to the beach and to the town. A bit of Europe in the heart of the Hamptons.
