Sitting on Heady Creek in Southampton is this five-bedroom cedar-shake home. Deeds for the property's recent transfer were just recorded, and indicate that the waterfront spread traded for $6.4 million to new owners William and Laura Mclanahan. Looks like the home has an excuse to pop one of its 1,200 bottles of wine! (A recent renovation gave this home the huge cellar, a movie theater, and a gym.) And it turns out the property really does deserve some extra celebrating: this thing has been on the market since 2007! Yes, the home spent 1,285 days on the market on StreetEasy alone! Perhaps the original asking price of $7.750 million—well over $1 million more than the sale price—scared buyers off.
