Woman about town (Southampton, specifically) Dorothy Lichtenstein is supposedly pursuing a home on Meeting House Lane, says the Post. The widow of contemporary artist Roy Lichtenstein is a fixture of the East End scene, and a big supporter of the new Parrish Art Museum—she spoke at the ground-breaking ceremony!
According to Newsday, Lichtenstein currently lives on the tony Gin Lane in a converted carriage house, which sits a stone's throw from the ocean. But the Post reports that she's been to a property on the tamer in-town street "several times," and even "had an engineer look over the place." Perhaps she's seeking refuge from last year's string of art thefts?
It's not clear exactly which home Lichtenstein is looking at, but if her heart is set on Meeting House Lane, she has quite a few options.
Address: 115 Meeting House Lane
Price: $3.459 million
Deets: A pristine 4,000-square-foot colonial that we have to assume is at the top of Lichtenstein's list. The home boasts two accessory structures, gleaming interiors, and lots of walls suitable to what we assume is an impressive art collection. Dorothy, Meeting House Lane may not be Kansas/Gin Lane, but this house is equally enviable! [Sotheby's]
Address: 59 Meeting House Lane
Price: $2 million
Deets: Behind door number two is a 2,400-square-foot chunk of new construction. The property was inspired by the designs of some boldface names like Ralph Lauren and Robert DeNiro. Maybe Lichtenstein will appreciate that since she like, hangs out with starchitect Robert A.M. Stern! [Corcoran]
Address: 89 Meeting House Lane
Price: $1.595 million
Deets: Behind door number three is this circa 1840 colonial. In other words, we can understand why you'd want an engineer to look it over. The three-bedroom home sits on a corner lot and, uh, yawn! [Prudential]
Address: 90 Meeting House Lane
Price: $2.05 million
Deets: Last and kind of least is this investment property. The home's currently configured with four apartments in the main house and a separate two-bedroom cottage. The interiors are sort of blah, but a renovation would do wonders for this place! [Corcoran]
