Model/actress Christie Brinkley is offloading the beachfront New York cottage her parents used to live in after losing both her mum and stepfather last year (12).

The blonde beauty's elderly stepdad Don died at the home in Sag Harbor last summer (Jul12), and her mother Marjorie passed away just two months later (Sep12).

Instead of keeping the house as part of her property porfolio, Brinkley has now decided to sell off the three-bedroom pad and has listed it for $2.8 million (£1.8 million).

A representative for Billy Joel's ex-wife tells the New York Post's Page Six column, "It is a beautiful place, but it is now empty, and she also owns a couple of properties up the road."
