Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can buy or rent in the Hamptons for a certain price.
The Northwest Harbor section of East Hampton sits, appropriately, in the northwestern part of town. The bayside peninsula is close to Springs and similar in geography in that both neighborhoods are surrounded by bay waters on three sides.
It’s also similar to Springs in that the real estate tends to be much less expensive than other areas of East Hampton, which is why we’re exploring what a $1 million budget can get you. In fact, all of these homes are under the set price.
2 Patriots Lane: $999,000
Built in 1990, this home may be just a bit dated, but it certainly isn’t boring. The modern saltbox has 1,700 square feet of space, three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and one half-bath on a half-acre of land. Inside, there’s an open floor plan, two of the bedrooms on the first floor, and the master suite on the second.
Inside, the kitchen has been recently renovated and, according to the listing, “all finishes and many mechanicals” have gotten updates, but it still has design elements of the ‘90s found throughout the space. We love the slanted roof and interesting exterior.
It last sold in 2011 for $639,000 and came on the market for $999,000 less than two months ago in September.
20 Quarty Court: $999,000
The largest home featured is 1,800 square feet—and also sits on the largest lot of 1.66 acres. Inside, there are three bedrooms and two full bathrooms in a single story, where the master bedroom is located away from the two guest suites for privacy, and the kitchen opens out to the back deck and pool.
Located at the southern part of Northwest Harbor, the home is about three miles north of East Hampton village, or about a 10-minute drive. It’s located about five miles from the ocean at Main Beach.
The home has been on and off the market several times in the last two years, and was available to rent in 2015. It was first listed for sale about a year ago for $1,149,000 and has come down in price several times since, but as of earlier this month the home saw the first price cut that brought it below $1 million.
11 Pioneer Lane: $875,000
Standing 1,600 square feet in size with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, this renovated saltbox sits on 0.58 acres of land. Outside, there’s a heated pool and entertaining space.
The interior of the home looks to have been renovated recently, with hardwood floors throughout and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, as well as Carrara counters. However, the exterior does look like it needs a facelift.
8 Musket Lane: $850,000
The least expensive home featured is just 1,400 square feet in size with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The contemporary style home was built in 1974 and sits on a half-acre of land on Musket Lane, which is right off Hands Creek Road and close to Three Mile Harbor Drive.
There’s an open floor plan in the living and dining spaces of the home, and while the kitchen could benefit from some new flooring, it looks like some of the other rooms have gotten an update. The hardwood floors in the living and dining rooms look relatively recent.
It last sold in 1999 for $283,000 and went on the market for $899,000 in June of this year. A price cut came in August, bringing it down to the current asking price of $850,000.
