We needed a palate cleanser after this morning's foray into "That's Rather Hideous" territory and found it with this five-bedroom. Located in the privacy-loving Northwest Woods section of East Hampton, the 4000 sq. ft. home is set on 1.75 "verdant" acres and offers one of our favorite features: a wrap-around porch. In addition to a decent-sized piece of property (which includes a 20 x 40 pool, natch), the residence itself features a master and a guest suite, a double height living room and 4.5 baths.
The owners (who have moved) are also offering 3% of the sale price back to the purchaser to put towards closing costs. While we don't think that the $60K incentive is enough to encourage a sale, it's definitely a step in the right direction.
