New York (HAMPTONS) — ‘Twas two summers ago when Madge enjoyed the English countryside style estate named Coxwould (The Erdman House), on Lily Pond Lane in East Hampton.
Listed at $425,00 for the season, Madonna rented this sprawling six-bedroom beach-front mansion with guest cottage, spanning across 2.212 lush acres of land.
Intricately designed with wisteria arbors and extensive English gardens, the Coxwould estate was developed by Lowell M. Schulman. This posh rental also includes a lavish pool and private deeded beach access to a secluded section between Main Beach and Georgica Beach.
In that same year, Madonna had also purchased a 30-acre horse farm in Bridgehampton from Kelly Klein, ex-wife of fashion designer, Calvin Klein.
Dating back to 1912, the Coxwould mansion was originally built by renowned “society architect”, Harrie T. Lindeberg. Evoking the spirit of England’s country homes in the early part of the 20th century, this eclectic cottage style mansion is one of the most enchanting properties on the East End of Long Island.
Designed in an English vernacular style, Coxwould’s exterior is made of beach sand stucco walls, which are artistically accented by small hand-split shingles that curve around the façade with sweeping straw thatch – the home’s hallmark.
Fast forward to 2012, and the property is now listed for sale at $24.5 million, and currently in contract. Neighbors of the soon to be mansion owner include Mort Zuckerman (Forbes Billionaires ranked real estate investor and media mogul), Jerry Seinfeld and Martha Stewart.
