Who says you can't buy in the Hamptons for under $1 million? Well, it's not the easiest thing to do, but we stumbled across a 4-bedroom 3-bathroom charmer in Southampton listed at $795k. This 2,700sf house received a visit from the Pricechopper fairy (it was formerly $829k). Not flashy, this modest home is perfectly serviceable with an updated kitchen and modern fireplace. We are impressed with the pool and Energy Star rating. The interior of the house has been completely redone with new duct work and blown foam insulation (trust us, that's not a small thing!). We just love this Kermit the Frog vibe; it really is fun being green! Our biggest concern? Location, location, location. Buyers aren't exactly lining up for the 274 Old Montauk Highway address.
