Continuing the recent trend of big-ticket home sales on the East End, this 6,650 sq. ft. "quaint" English cottage recently changed hands. After hitting the market back in March and entering into contract in July, the sale was finalized early last month. Even more impressive than the property itself is that the $13M purchase price wasn't too far off the original ask of $13.9M.
And what is $13M buying these days? Other than a driveway that "basically goes on forever", the decade-old home offers:
"6 bedrooms, 7.5 baths, double height entry foyer with corner-set fireplace. Grand scale living room with limestone fireplace, state-of-the-art chefs kitchen with adjoining sitting area, formal dining room, library and study. French doors throughout lead to magical gardens and protected sunset views over farm fields and beyond."The property itself features an oversized gunite pool (of course), bluestone terraces, tennis and bocce courts. Hopefully, the new owner plans to make the most of all it has to offer. · This $13.9M Sagg Estate's Driveway Basically Goes on Forever [Curbed Hamptons]
