When we volunteered this six-bedroom Montauk spread?located within rock-throwing distance to Robert De Niro's summer home?as a PriceSpotter contestant back in January, Curbed readers weren't exactly enthusiastic about the place. The few that commented offered the usual critiques of "dated" and "teardown." However, one of their guesses eventually ended up right on the money. A $2M pricechop a couple of weeks ago brought the ask down to $11.5M?low enough to interest a buyer just a few days later. While the transaction may be dwarfed by some of the other recent South Fork purchases, it could very well be Montauk's priciest transaction for 2012.
