On the Market: Former Home of Truman Capote

The former estate of Truman Capote, author of literary classics Breakfast at Tiffany's and In Cold Blood, in Sagaponack, NY, is on the market for $14.6 million. Though he was actually a New Orleans native, Capote lived in the Long Island home until his death in 1984.
A cached listing for the property reads:

Hear the ocean from this very private and breathtaking setting in the heart of Sagaponack. Once the home of Truman Capote, this property has an oceanview main house, legal 2 bedroom guest house, 1900 sq ft artist's studio, detached garage and swimming pool. It is an oasis with stunning gardens, lawns and mature trees set 1000 feet from the ocean. Main house is a south facing, mid centruy modern home tastefully appointed and has plans and permits to expand. Guest house is ideally situated with its own privacy, gardens and parking.

The Hamptons home is being sold by abstract-expressionist painter Ross Bleckner, who purchased the property in 1993 from the Nature Conservancy for $800,000. Capote had left the property to his long-time partner Jack Dunphy, who in turn left the property to the Nature Conservancy at the time of his death in 1992. Be sure to check out this Hampton Style piece on Capote's former home. And, as an ode to Capote, here's how you can get the look of Holly Golightly's studio in the film Breakfast at Tiffany's.

I love that home! I can't imagine how exciting it would be to live in Truman Capote's house. What a fantastic little piece of literary history.
