Notable Sellers of This $4.4M Southampton Home Originally Purchased It with Roy Lichtenstein

The Hamptons’ high season has dwindled down, but it’s never too early to think about where you’ll be spending next summer. And, the next one after that. Plus, autumn is just as magical as summertime on the East End. Those in the market for a Hamptons home to cherish long-term might be interested in this Southampton property that is for sale for the first time in 50 years.

Located at 65 Wooley Street, the spread is south of the highway, walking distance to town, has lush grounds, and boasts notable previous dwellers. Paul and Diane Waldman are the sellers. Paul is a figurative and abstract artist, while his wife is an art historian, who served as the Guggenheim’s Deputy Director and Senior Curator for 14 years. The couple purchased the home as a summer retreat in 1968 with pop artist Roy Lichtenstein. In 1970, the Waldmans bought out Lichtenstein’s share in the house, as the pop artist wanted a full-time home of his own nearby.

Upon purchasing the property originally, Paul Waldman and Lichtenstein built an attached studio and converted an outbuilding, connected via breezeway, into living quarters for Lichtenstein’s sons. The latter space was eventually converted to Diane Waldman’s studio space.

The 2,313-square-foot abode totals three bedrooms and two bathrooms. It sits on half an acre of land, with room for a swimming pool in the private yard. Pricing it at 4,395,000, Pat Garrity of The Corcoran Group holds the listing.
