Everyone liked everything about this house when it hit the market last May: everything, that is, except the copious use of blue paint and the price, $7.3M. "Finally--a "Nantucket style" in the Hamptons that's actually Nantucket style! Great except it's on a corner lot. Agree about the price." "a little too much blue, but that is changed very easily, a very beautiful house and also individual. love it." "LOVE the staircase. HATE the blue, who on earth knows the thought process that went on there? Agree about the price, too." Well, the blue is still there, but the price has been chopped almost a million dollars, down to $6.495M. Better, but we still think there's a ways to go on price, and why not invest in a few gallons of white paint, owners?
Other than the blue, who wouldn't love this elegant, yet modest traditional home: the white picket fence and brick paths outside, the beamed ceilings, what looks like antique barnwood paneling in a library, pretty kitchen and bathrooms. The Chinese Chippendale-style staircase is an interesting choice, too. In all, there are five bedrooms, four baths in 3500sf. Outside, there is 0.93 acre with decking and a pool, not pictured. Location is good—the listing says "Just 2000 feet from the ocean."
