This old cottage (built 1925) hit the market back in July 2013. We really liked it—it dates from the days when families who lived in the village during the winter repaired to local "camps" by the water in the summer. Pictures of it was included in the 2012 exhibition "Escape to the Bay: Family Camps in Southampton," at the Southampton Historical Museum. (The photograph of the interior is from the previous Elliman listing.)
Anyway, no seller fell in love with it at the asking price of $2.995M; now the price has been chopped to $2.395M. Besides the tiny 790sf cottage, there is one acre of land on a bluff with steps down to the beach at Little Peconic Bay. One issue with the property might be that the plot is long and narrow, so the new house would be limited in size.
