We just got wind that 171 Great Plains Road (a.k.a. "Beechwood") in Southampton closed yesterday. The final purchase price? $24M. While that number is a huge step down from the listed ask of $38M (more than 35%), according to Tim Davis, the listing agent for the nine-bedroom home, it's "an inland record sale." It's also good enough for the second priciest purchase of 2012. Now we're just waiting for a final number on 174 Further Lane (it's now listed as sold) to see if reigning champ retains the title.
Update: 174 Further Lane changed hands for $28M.
