The modest Hamptons home once owned by Elinor Bunin Munroe, the namesake of the Lincoln Center Film Society, has hit the market asking $19.5 million, according to the New York Post.

Built in 1957, the comfy 2,200-square-foot Bridgehampton cottage, located at 719 Ocean Road, has two bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms. It also features over four acres nestled into the quiet and lush greenery surrounding Sagg Pond and 700 feet of direct water frontage.

The Emmy-winning graphic designer, who passed away in 2017, picked up the house with her CEO husband George Munroe, also deceased, sometime back it seems — so no word on what they paid for their summer getaway.

Corcoran’s Linda Nasta has the listing, which Curbed speculates may soon be replaced by a far more ostentatious house. We for the record hope that it finds buyer interested in preserving its rustic charm.
