In the heart of Bridgehampton, late artist Darragh Park cultivated a real life "artist's dream" on a three acre tract of land. With a "solid" 1920s cottage and a scenic pond, the property did double duty as his studio and his inspiration; he painted the site on several occasions. Yes, an actual artist lived here! Back in the March, the picture-perfect property hit the market for $6.250 million. But two weeks later, the price dropped to $5.895 million—a trend that lasted all summer, until things leveled out at $4.8 million in July. Fortunately, the aggressive pricing strategy worked: the property has had a solid contract since early September. Wonder what they paid?
