After yesterday's news that someone is about to pick up 174 Further Lane (asking price $32M), we weren't expecting to learn of another pricey sale for at least a week or so. However, following an early morning visit to HREO we learned that this Meadow Lane oceanfront contemporary has entered into contract.
Designed by the late Ward Bennet in 1970 (and expanded in 1980), the six-bedroom "concrete and stucco residence boasts rooms full of light," radiant heated stone flooring throughout, several fireplaces, an oceanside terrace, high-end St. Charles kitchen, a game room and library, all with ocean, bay or dune views. Set on 2.5 acres (with protected and private dunescapes to the east), the property itself offers a gunite pool and an all-weather north/south tennis court .
Since the buyer chopped off more than $4.5M during their one-year quest to find a buyer, we have a feeling the purchase price is going to be a few million south of the final listed ask of $19.95M. Anyone care to venture a guess just how far south?
