Tuesday Weld buys apartment in Montauk – DIRT
Early ’60s Hollywood teenage queen Tuesday Weld, who sold her longtime beachfront property in Montauk in 2009, apparently misses the historic Hamptons town because she recently bought a small condo there for $ 335. $ 000. It has been replaced by Constance Tighe and John taylor in Corcoran.
The native New Yorker actually sold two properties in 2009; the montauk house, which traded at $ 6.75 million, and a pre-war condo on Manhattan’s Upper West Side that cost just over a million. A few years earlier, in 2006, she bought a house in Colorado, just outside Aspen, for $ 950,000, and in 2018, she added a house in Hollywood for $ 1.77 million.
Well maintained, the quite ordinary Weld condo purchased this summer is in the Montauk Manor. At just 661 square feet, the one-bedroom unit features two bathrooms, as well as two separate entrances. Common charges are hefty at around $ 2,500 per month. The Tudor-style mansion was built in 1926 by Carl G. Fisher, the Miami Beach developer, who intended to make Montauk the “Miami Beach of the North.” Originally a hotel, the 140-unit condominium was designed by Schultze and Weaver, responsible for Breakers in Palm Beach, Biltmore in Los Angeles, and Pierre, Sherry-Netherland and the original Waldorf- Astoria in New York. Facilities include an on-site restaurant, indoor and outdoor pools, tennis, and beach shuttles.
The actress, whose career took her from teenage stardom to an Oscar nomination in 1978 for “In Search of Mr. Goodbar,” comes from the Boston Brahmin Weld family. Her father died when Tuesday (née Susan) was only four years old. She told Life magazine in 1971: “My dad’s family was from Tuxedo Park, and they offered to bring us kids and pay for our education, on the condition that mom wouldn’t see us again. Instead, the young Tuesday worked as a model to support the family and became a successful actress. She was a Golden Globe nominee for the lead role in the 1972 film in Joan Didion’s novel “Play It as It Lays” and an Emmy nominee opposite Donald Sutherland in the 1983 TV movie “The Winter of Our Discontent”. She won the Golden Globe Award for Most Promising Female Newcomer in 1960, when she was 17.
