One morning not too long ago Julianne Moore woke up in her cute-as-button cottage on the placid shore of Fort Pond in the sleepy and low-key, if still alarmingly expensive, Hamptons community of Montauk to find a drunken woman passed out on the deep-cushioned leather sofa in the living room. It wasn’t too long before the humble and pretty near perfect pond-front cottage popped up for sale at $2.85 million, considerably less than the almost $3.5 million they asked when it came for sale a handful of years ago. And, when the roughly 1,000-square-foot beach-chic cottage finally sold earlier this year for its full asking price, the Moore-Freundlichs more than tripled the $1.07 million paid for the place in 2007. The bohemian hideaway oozes with original charm and is fashionably turned out with hand-scraped antique barn wood floors, a brick fireplace painted onyx and a vaulted ceiling crossed by thick wood beam. Moore and Fruendlich’s Manhattan home, a stunning late 1800s Greek Revival townhouse in the heart of the West Village, was purchased in 2003 for $3.5 million.
