Model and actress Christie Brinkley has sold her North Haven house fronting Sag Harbor Bay.

The property sold for close to its most recent asking price of $18 million, according to Douglas Elliman. It was listed for $20 million one year ago.

Ms. Brinkley purchased the property back in 2004 for $7.15 million.

Originally built in 1843, the 5,500-square-foot residence at 1 Fahys Road sits on 4.44 acres and has 327 feet of sandy beach overlooking the harbor and, in-season, the yachts and sailboats that visit Sag Harbor. It is three stories with period details such as columns on two facades, wide-plank pine floors, an oak banister and multiple fireplaces.

On the first floor, the kitchen has soapstone and marble counters. The living room is described as “immense,” and there is also a sitting room, a formal dining room and a great room—the latter of which has another dining and sitting room. Rounding out the first floor are a powder room, mud room, pantry and full bath.

Four bedrooms—three with en-suite baths—are on the second floor, including the master suite with a sitting room and a secluded terrace with harbor views.

The fifth bedroom, a study and storage are on the third floor.

The grounds have specimen trees, gardens and a gunite pool.

Douglas Elliman’s Enzo Morabito represented the property.

Ms. Brinkley is staying local to the South Fork: She still owns Tower Hill, her Bridgehampton estate with a five-story observation tower that at times has been on the market for $30 million.
