It's not that there's anything really wrong with this house, but there's nothing really right either. Aside from location, of course: right on Georgica Cove. The interiors are just so vanilla and dull, we don't see how anyone would fall in love with it.
The property first hit the market back in June 2011 asking $27M; then the price was chopped to $23M. Now the ask is $21M. We're still not sure about that—neighbor 24 Chauncey Close, on 2.9 acres, sold a year ago for $16,367,500. This house is much bigger and nicer than that one, granted.
Designed by East Hampton's Zwirko and Ortmann and erected by long-time East End builder John Caramagna, the 7000sf traditional residence is set on 2.44 acres. It offers a "double height entry foyer leading to a grand scale living room with marble fireplace, a formal turreted dining room, [and] beautiful Chestnut flooring throughout." There's a high-end kitchen with its own fireplace that flows into a screened porch with radiant heat slate floors. As for the master suite, it's got its own marble fireplace and also a "private deck with incredible sunset views overlooking the pond."
