Newsday reports that Christie Brinkley is looking to unload her massive, 20-acre Bridgehampton estate for $29.5 million. Known as Tower Hill for its 50-foot turret, the home was built in 1891 and was scooped up by the supermodel in 1998. Her ex-husband, architect Peter Cook, restored the home, but it’s been on and off the market with no luck since 2002. It was originally listed for $25 million, but after the couple’s split in 2007, Brinkley re-listed it for $30 million.

The main gambrel-style house, which was built with “475 tons of local rock,” has 11 bedrooms, and there’s also an art studio, gym, pool, tennis court, greenhouse conservatory, four-car heated garage, and four-bedroom guesthouse.

The estate was last listed in 2010, at which time Brinkley told Newsday:

Each time anyone showed interest, I would think, where else can you snowboard and cross-country ski? Find frogs in the pond? Roast marshmallows ’round the campfire? Swing from the grand old trees? Grow veggies in winter in a greenhouse? Grow sweet organic corn in the summer? Swim, play tennis or paint in an art studio? And catch every rainbow and sunset from your own romantic tower? Tower Hill is a lifestyle as much as a home sweet home for my entire extended family.

It’s now back for $29.5 million, likely because her youngest child, daughter Sailor, has flown the nest.
