At its highest price in 2009, this 1-acre spread on Lake Agawam in Southampton Village was asking a hefty $14M. However, in the years since first hitting the market, the owner has sliced more than 50% from the original ask. The seller is now hoping for a more realistic $6.9M. And what does almost $7M buy on South Main Street these days? A whole lotta house, that's what.
Weighing in at 7,000 sq. ft., the 11-bedroom Victorian offers high-ceilings, various porches and decks throughout its three stories, a paneled library, a large butler's pantry with original cabinetry, nine bathrooms, a sunroom and even an indoor swimming pool and sauna in the finished basement. There's also a four-bedroom/four-bathroom caretaker's cottage that dates back to 1825 on the grounds.
Though it's too early to tell if this new price will be able to entice a buyer, the listing is now dangerously close to being valued for the land alone. Think anyone will bite?
Of Note: Corcoran's currently got it listed at $150K for a seasonal rental. Some of the interior shots they provide might be a good indication of why it's been on the market for so long.
