The Hamptons Went Pricechop Crazy Over The Weekend

New, 3 comments

While you were busy watching The Hunger Games this weekend, a handful of pricey South Fork properties decided to get serious about selling. Four homes with asks of $17M or greater dramatically slashed their asks in the last few days. Instead of giving each one its own post (page views be damned!), we've rounded up the foursome here. Enjoy!

73 Briar Patch Road, East Hampton
Highest Price: $21,500,000
Most Recent: $17,950,000
Now: $15,950,000

Designed by Peter Cook, this 10,000 sq. ft. contemporary has been after a buyer since 2007. The six-bedroom is set on almost a full acre next to a reserve and boasts a double-height great room, a screened-in porch with indoor/outdoor fireplaces, an eat-in kitchen, a wine cellar, and a finished lower level that includes a gym with a separate sauna and steam room. The home also offers the requisite gunite pool with poolhouse as well as winter views (meaning: the leaves are all dead) of Georgica Pond.

127 Main Street, East Hampton
Starting Price: $29,000,000
Now: $26,500,000

Though it's been on the market since May of 2010, The Gardiner Estate in East Hampton is the newest of our four pricechopper listings. Designed Wyeth and King and built in the late 1930's for Robert Lion Gardiner, the "great stone house" is set on 5.5 "park-like acres" off of East Hampton's Main Street. The house underwent a five-year $10M renovation (at least) in 2005 and now offers modern amenities like geo-thermal heating, a closed circuit security system and heated floors.

81 Briar Patch Road, East Hampton
Highest Price: $39,500,000
Most Recent: $34,995,000
Now: $29,995,000

The first of two Jeffry Collé estates to get a $5M chop in the last few days is this century-old Stanford White-designed estate overlooking Georgica Pond. Like the Gardiner Estate, it underwent an extended renovation (which included rotating the house 90 degrees for a better view of the pond) and now offers imported Italian marble bathrooms, custom woodwork throughout and more living space. It's been on the market since June of 2009.

674 Scuttle Hole Rd, Water Mill
Highest Price: $39,500,000
Most Recent: $29,995,000
Now: $24,995,000

It's only fitting that this Jeffery Collé estate got a $5M pricechop on the same date as the one on Briar Patch road?it hit the market on the same day as well. Situated on 42 acres (with an option to buy adjacent 20-acre lot) the almost 17,000 sq. ft. home boasts details one would expect from the well-known builder: endless woodwork, imported marble and expansive rooms. The gunite pool is accounted for, but "you decide where the tennis court and the stables go."
