The three-story colonial mansion was built in 1843 by a whaling captain. It still features much of its original carpentry, including the wide-plank floors, oak banister and multiple fireplaces. Brinkley purchased the four-bedroom residence in 2004 and completely personalized the space. Modern updates include a luxe soapstone sink and marble counters in the kitchen.

"Everything you see here is a touch of Christie," said Douglas Elliman broker Enzo Morabito, who is the agent for both listings. "It's a mix of the old and the new."

Morabito said the home's real value lies beyond its walls; nearly every room overlooks the bay. Just under 4½ acres, the property has a gunite pool, a waterfront fire pit and over 300 feet of sandy beach.

Brinkley's "Tower Hill" compound in Bridgehampton is listed for $29.5 million.

Named for its 50-foot observation tower, the hilltop home was built in 1891. Spanning 20 acres, the estate includes a five-bedroom main house, a four-bedroom guest house, a greenhouse conservatory and a separate artist studio. Outside is a private pond, a tennis court and a 75-foot swimming pool.

"This house is the epitome of what the Hamptons is about," said Morabito.

The "Uptown Girl" has proven to be a savvy Hamptons real estate investor. Brinkley's extensive renovation of each of the properties preserved their character, while infusing them with her personality.
