The home at 8 Haynes Lane, which was once on the site of a polo field that belonged to one of East Hampton’s founding families, has just sold under Douglas Elliman agent Jeanine Edington for $1.55 million.
Sited on 1.7 acres of land in Springs, the Talmage family property now has white plank horse fencing to preserve its history, located near the land that used to be the Talmage dairy farm. Outside, there’s also mature landscaping, bluestone patios, a heated gunite pool, Har-Tru tennis court, and a two-car garage.
Designed by Tom Behringer, the 3,100-square-foot home has four bedrooms and three bathrooms. Interior features include 25-foot cathedral ceilings in the great room, a wood-burning fireplace in the living space, seven-foot glass French doors, and a wall of windows. There’s also an unfinished basement with nine-foot ceilings.
The master suite features 20-foot ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, and an ensuite bathroom.
In March of 2016, the home listed for $1,795,000, was removed about a year later, and relisted for the same asking price in May of this year. The price then came down to $1,695,000 and finally sold earlier this month for $1.55 million.
