Score a bargain at a north Water Mill property auction

New build

This nine (!) bedroom new-build, on Blank Lane in northern Water Mill, has been on the market for about ten months. Asking price is $5.25M. However, it will be auctioned off to the highest bidder on October 28, as long as someone bids $3.9M or above. (That’s a little over 25% off the current ask, for those bad with math.)

So what do you get for that? A 7000 square home on 1.14 acres, with a junior master on the first floor. Upstairs, "the guest rooms are all ensuite and each has a different layout and roof line giving each guest a unique experience." The lower level offers a gym area, "sizable movie theater," and a second laundry room. Outside, there's a 16 x 50 saltwater pool with inset spa and a pool house with a kitchen, bath, and outdoor shower.

So far, so good, although we will note that when the property was on a CH Pricespotter post, commenters were fairly savage. Comments ranged from "Hideous." to "Snooz-athon.... same fixtures and features in every new build. Why hire an interior designer??" to "A veritable gypsum board paradise. Maybe a Wall St techie will see the value." Eh, we thought the place was fine.
