Russian heiress Anna Anissimova buys $20M Hamptons estate


Russian socialite, model, actress and LLNYC cover star Anna Anissimova has a new vacation spot! According to Page Six, she scooped up a $20 million estate in the Hamptons, composed of a mansion for $15 million and a neighboring parcel of land for $5 million on Kellis Pond in Water Mill.

The Russian heiress is known for her spending on lavish real estate properties and indeed already owns a mansion in Water Mill that she bought in 2007 with her sister. She made headlines in 2004 when she rented singer-songwriter Denise Rich’s Southampton estate for $550,000 for just two months. As a teenager, she bought Diane Von Furstenberg’s $20 million West Village townhouse as an investment property while she was living in a $10 million, 75th-floor apartment in the south tower of Time Warner Center. She also owns a mid-century home in Pacific Palisades in Los Angeles.

“I want people to know that I am an average girl,” she told LLNYC in her cover profile in November. “Everything I did in my past and all the money that I have doesn’t define what I am like or who I am. I am just like anyone else in this world trying to make it through one day. I have the same problems as everyone.”
