This incredibly colorful East Hampton home, located at 179 Bull Path, came on the market back in July for $2.45 million, and after three months on the market, the first price cut just brought it down to $2.25 million. In 1996, the current owner, artist Ernst Lurker, purchased the property for $475,000.
Lurker is the founder of the PlayArt movement, which aims to engage artists by creating movable sculptures. Given he’s an artist, we’re thinking he’s the one who added the pops of color to the 3,575-square-foot home.
The home has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and one half-bathroom on almost two acres of land. Built in 1984, the contemporary home has an open floor play, a main floor master suite, and a second master suite which uses the entire upper level of the structure. Outside, there’s an oversized deck, heated lounge space, pool, and detached two-car garage with an artist’s studio above.
Across the street, the home at 170 Bull Path stands 5,060 square feet with six bedrooms and seven bathrooms on 2.7 acres of land. That home—built in 2001 but recently updated and has features like a bocce court, Sonos, and smart-home technology—is asking $2,995,000.
