Before last week, only one home was available for sale on south-of-the-highway Egypt Lane in East Hampton: the historic Little Close home at the 140 address, built in 1921 by famous architects Polhemus and Coffin. Recently, the nearly 100-year-old home received a price cut that put it for sale at $11.5 million.
Now, another home has just listed for the same asking price of $11.5 million under Sotheby’s International Realty agent Patricia Wadzinski, located at 84 Egypt Lane.
Standing 5,360 square feet in size, the traditional style home has six bedrooms, four full bathrooms, one half-bathroom, a country kitchen, breakfast area, and a master bedroom suite that occupies the second and third floors.
On over an acre of land, the home has incredible landscaping and gardens that occupy the exterior, making a romantic property with hydrangeas and lavender, accented by pergola-covered areas and a covered dining patio.
Outside, there’s also brick patio surround a pool, a covered veranda, and a 690-square-foot guest house with a bedroom, bathroom, and sitting room.
The property sold in 2010 for $7.5 million. The home that currently stands on the property was completed in 2012 and was previously available for rent at $25,000 per month.
