Available for sale for the first time ever, the beach retreat was rebuilt by Arpel and her husband, Ronald Newman, in 2002. It has since been renovated two more times, the Journal notes. The sparkling kitchen and bathrooms got a face-lift just last year.
The stylish estate sits on Meadow Lane, which Forbes once dubbed “Billionaire Lane.” Notable residents there include businessman David Koch, designer Calvin Klein, and hotelier Ian Schrager.
Oceanfront villa in Southampton, NY
Living room with beach access
The 7,250-square-foot home has seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms. It comes with 8 acres and fronts both the Atlantic Ocean and Shinnecock Bay.
The modern floor plan includes an elevator that goes between the two levels. The elegant main floor features a double-height entry with a grand staircase, a living room with beach access, a dining room with a high ceiling, a library, a newly remodeled kitchen, and an elevator.
The spacious master suite includes a glamorous new bathroom—maybe not a surprise given the homeowner is a cosmetics guru who appreciates lots of mirrors and flattering light. The master suite has access to the elevated pool, and features both garden and ocean views.
The grounds include English gardens, a gazebo, pool, and tennis court.
Arpel created her own brand of skin-care products, which she marketed first at department stores (where she apparently introduced the makeover) and later on HSN. Newman died in 2015. According to the Journal, Arpel owns homes in Manhattan and Palm Beach, FL.
