Fabled Further Lane: here’s a notable property on the ocean. What is special about this enormous (10,000 square foot) gambrel by Francis Fleetwood is all the thought he put into outdoor space: 2,400 square feet of covered porches and porticos, a roof deck, and a pretty glassed-in pergola by the pool. We don’t think the house needs much work besides a bit of redecorating: the house was owned by an elderly man, a former Goldman Sachs partner, who died last year. The new owners will probably want to add a home theater, but one nice touch is an indoor spa room with a hot tub and endless current pool. In all, there are seven bedrooms and 9.5 baths, including a master with spectacular views and his-and-hers baths.
House aside, there’s six acres of land. So let’s get to the nitty gritty—is anyone going to pay $69M? There aren’t any other oceanfront properties on Further Lane for sale right now, so comps might be the $70M David Geffen paid for two acres on Lily Pond Lane or the $75M being asked for 1.8 acres also on Lily Pond Lane. What do you think?
