Uptown Girl’s smart investments
She has become the poster girl for wronged women, thanks to this month’s messy divorce. But today’s New York Daily News reveals how Christie Brinkley, ‘the ultimate girl next-door,’ has ‘turned her lemons into lemonade.’
Brinkley is sitting on an $80 million real estate portfolio and apparently has a knack for snapping up choice spots. She owns 18 properties in the Hamptons, grouped into land parcels.
In addition to her breathtaking $30 million Tower Hill estate spread over eight lots on 20 acres in Bridgehampton, Brinkley owns two adjacent North Haven beach houses and a bungalow in Sag Harbor, as well as an oceanfront office in Watermill and a vacation villa in the Caribbean.
“She’s had a very good eye for real estate and bought very special properties,” Brinkley’s broker, Susan Breitenbach, tells The News.
