A curbed reader wrote in to our tip line (open 24 hours) and brought this cute little three-bedroom in Bridgehampton to our attention. Nestled south of the highway on a non-through street (helpful for keeping the summer lookie-loos away), the one-story home is set on .6 cleared acres, offers 1600 sq. ft. of living space, wood flooring throughout, a nice-sized living room/dining room area with a fireplace, attached garage and a bonus room. There's also a gunite pool in the rather expensive, although landscapeless, back yard.
Now, to answer the question: Why no bites? Although we're not privy to the buying activity the house has seen since it entered the market more than a year and a half ago, a few things stand out immediately: 1) The way the home is staged is devoid of personality. 2) That kitchen is so small it almost feels like an afterthought. 3) At $1.8M, it's overpriced. The current owner?Solutions Inc. CEO Vekrum Kaushik?(over)paid that amount when he purchased the place in 2006 and is just trying to avoid a loss, not to mention a foreclosure. PropertyShark is telling us that a suit is pending. He would have better luck with the $1.3M he was originally asking, but it seems like he's trying eek out a profit before having the locks changed on him.
