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: $3M.
↑ This historic (c. 1899) house in Sag Harbor offers a spacious yard (please note: pictured child not included in sale) with pool and Havens Beach just steps away. The 2200 square foot house is beautifully updated, and offers three bedrooms and three baths, and the listing notes "The home can be easily expanded (to the open lot side) to 3,246 sq.ft. plus a finished lower level of 700 sq.ft. and 600 sq.ft. garage."
↑ Just over the bridge in North Haven is this four-bedroom on North Fresh Pond with access to the bay. Yes, the house needs updating, or if not, the listing notes, "The lot can accommodate a 3,250 +/- sq. ft. home." The waterside pool overlooks pretty gardens; the plot is just over a half acre and includes 108' of pond frontage.
↑ Over to Springs, this traditional offers "views overlooking Three Mile Harbor and Gardiners Bay." The master suite encompasses the entire top floor with a wall of windows; the 2750 square foot house also boasts two guest rooms along with a junior master with ensuite and balcony. Dock your boat at the nearby community marina.
↑ In Water Mill is the most 80s house ever, a contemporary furnished with a mishmash of country and traditional furniture. Do not miss the blue mirrored bathroom vanity. We're going to assume this place is a teardown, and the real value here is the four acres of land. The freeform pool is pretty, and there's a tennis court and lily pond.
↑ Finally, in south Wainscott is a simple four-bedroom on an odd-shaped lot. There's a nice gunite pool out back on the half-acre plot, and the great room is spacious and perfect for entertaining. The master bedroom with fireplace and wall of windows is particularly inviting; in all, there's 3000 square feet of room.
