A Monday chopper alert: this Southampton 'villa' fell a whopping $4 million this weekend, dropping its $16.995 million price tag to $12.995 million. Set on 1.9 acres with 'private, deeded access to one of the widest, fine sand ocean beaches in the Hamptons' (down the lane), the stately looking 'masterpiece' is high on flash. A koi pond! A fountain! A gold-leaf ceiling! On the market since June, the 5 bedroom, 6.5 bath comes with the requisite pool and tennis court, but seems to have stopped there. The rooms are hardly villa-esque, photographing as perfectly passable, but unimpressive to the online eye. Though labeled 'lavishly accommodating', this 5,000 square foot mini-estate seems to beg for a few more chops in its future.
