We've noticed a lot of building work on the Napeague stretch oceanfront lately. (The postal address is Amagansett, but this house is really in Napeague.) The 2.5 acre property does seem to offer some advantages over other oceanfront, at least according to the brokerbabble. The house is sited so it has "no visible neighbors for over 1,000 +/- feet along the ocean and as much as 200 feet of ocean frontage." The listing says the house has views of "the sand and waves from the first floor, not just the second, and from the unusually large 3,400 +/- sq. ft. ocean side deck and 20' x 40' oceanside pool" but it's private because beachgoers can't see back over the dune. The house itself is 7500sf "Nantucket-style" with five bedrooms and 6.5 baths, "with every comfort and amenity for a distinguished beach lifestyle." (Nope, us either.) Price for all this is $14.9M.
