Almost exactly one year after hitting the market, this 2800 sq. ft. ranch that's "tucked away on a charming waterside lane" has been re-introduced to the pricechopper. After their first meeting, the place came away $700K lighter. Seeing no takers, they've upped the ante this time around. The owner has just sliced off an additional $800K. Asking price now? A still hefty $7.995M.
So...what's in the offering for $8M? Judging by the brokerbabble (and lack of interior photos), it looks like the 1-acre property itself is the key selling point. To wit:
"You will be inspired to wake early for the spectacular sunrise overlooking Barcelona Point. From the private 250' deep water dock embark on a day excursion to Shelter Island or an evening cruise to dine in Sag Harbor, East Hampton or Montauk. End the day with a refreshing dip in the waterside pool perfect for star gazing."Notice there's no mention of stunning interiors or a glorious master bedroom. The biggest clue that almost-40-year-old home might be in need of some serious work also comes courtesy of the listing copy. It notes that the place "can be transformed into a 5700 sq. foot custom dream home." · Listing: Live A Life That Would Make You Jealous [Bill Williams Realty]
