Brian de Palma, the director of "Scarface," "Carrie," and "The Untouchables," has purchased this charming shingled house on a Pantigo Road flag lot in East Hampton. It's a spacious 3500sf traditional built in 1999, complete with lovely grounds (a little over half an acre), and bijoux pool house. There are four bedrooms and 4.5 baths. The house closed for $2.95M. Ask had been about a million more and the property was last sold in 2006 for $3.2M, so it was a smart buy. Douglas Elliman represented the buyer, while the listing was Corcoran's. We think it's a really lovely place, so welcome to the Hamptons, Mr. De Palma!
