Film producer Jenno Topping, whose credits include “Hidden Figures” and “Charlie’s Angels,” has just bought the historic Halseycot home in her hometown of Sagaponack.

Located on Daniels Lane, the home was last asking $7.95 million. The final price Topping paid is not yet known.

Topping is married to writer and producer Chris Moore, who’s known the 2016 film “Manchester by the Sea.”

Halseycot was built in 1894 by Stephen Bolles Halsey, a descendant of one of Southampton’s settlers, and his wife, Adelia VanWyck Vandervoort, as a summer residence.

The couple’s primary home was in Astoria, Queens, which was reportedly founded by Halsey’s father, Stephen Alling Halsey — who named it after his friend John Jacob Astor.

The 2,346-square-foot, shingle-style home that Topping bought is a half mile from Gibson Beach, with Atlantic Ocean views from every room except an upstairs bath.

There are six bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a powder room, a fireplace and a wraparound porch — all on 1.41 acres. The property borders a 16-acre reserve and additionally features mature trees, a century-old barn and two separate one-story outbuildings.

It is one of the only homes from that era to withstand a 1938 hurricane in the area and is today known as one of the last original properties left in Sagaponack. Its “twin sister” is the Topping House at 791 Main St.

The seller was Rebecca McNeil, according to property records. The listing brokers, Douglas Elliman’s Paul Brennan and Martha Gundersen, declined to comment.
