Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what you can rent or buy for a set dollar amount in various Hamptons towns. Is one person's studio another person's palace? Let's find out! Today's price: about $7M.
Bridgehampton, 21 Kellis Way: Oddly, we found that a lot of properties at the $7M price point are very similar: pondfont gambrels. This one, we think, is nicer than most, with a living room with casual stacked stone fireplace, lovely marble kitchen with woodburning pizza oven and breakfast room and TV den. The house is 7000sf, with 8 bedrooms and 8.5 baths, and it's set on about two acres of land. Of course there's a gunite infinity pool. This property has been lingering on the market, so it's quite possible a buyer could score a deal here.
Montauk, 192 Soundview Drive: This house is post-modern rather than a gambrel, but it is waterfront, on a bluff overlooking the sound. The 3200sf house is designed to make the most of the views, but its offering of 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths isn't enough for today's buyers, so expansion is needed, along with some updates. There is an attractive freeform pool on the 1.7 acres of land, which is set 40' above sea level.
Southampton, 44 Pheasant Close North: "Located in one of the few private pond front communities in Southampton Village," this is another waterfront gambrel. The property squeezes a pool and tennis court onto its 1.45 acres. The house sees built for entertaining, with a two-bedroom guest suite and a bar in the great room. In all, the house is 7300sf, with six bedrooms and 5 baths.
