This gorgeous three-acre spread located in East Hampton listed at $13.9 million — down from the original $17.5 million price — just sold, according to Curbed. It’s unclear what the final sale price was or who bought the six-bedroom cottage that once belonged to the late Alan Slifka — an investor, philanthropist and founding chairman of The Big Apple Circus.  

Back in the early 80s, Slifka started his namesake investment management firm with $50 million, which is now known as Halcyon Asset Management, which has more than $10 billion AUM, according to the NYTimes. Slifka passed away in February of 2011.

Known as the Georgica Estate, this place is certainly a summer dream home and we’re going to take a tour.  The listing was by real estate company Saunders.

Here's the driveway to the home. There's also a garage.

The property is three-acres and offers plenty of lawn space.

According to the realtor, the estate features a 60 foot long pool.

Again, here's a shot of the well-manicured lawn.

There's a brick terrace that offers views of the estate's expansive landscaping.

There's definitely attention to detail when it comes to the landscape. There's also a pond on the property.

There's plenty of space in the 5,700 square-foot home for entertaining.

Of course, there's ample room for relaxing, too.

The home as an eat-in kitchen with updated appliances.

The dining room offers views of the green landscaping.

Here's a shot of the master bedroom.

The cottage offers six-bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms.
