The cottage at 71 Miller Lane East in East Hampton is under contract with listing agent Tom Fitzmaurice of Saunders Real Estate. This will be the fifth time that the home has sold since 2005.

In 2005, the home was actually sold twice: first in April for $562,000 and then again in December for $975,000.

In 2010 it came back on the market for $895,000—less than it was sold for five years earlier. It sold after about four months on the market and then was listed for sale in 2015 for $1.55 million. It sold the same year, and went back up for sale earlier this past February with an asking price of $1,495,000.

In each case, the home has sold relatively quickly after going on the market—including this time.

Built in 1950, the 1,345-square-foot cottage sits on a 0.2 acre lot about a half mile from East Hampton village. The home underwent a gut renovation in 2005 and then in 2012 it was updated with designer Tom Samet.

There are three bedrooms and two bedrooms. The living room has a wood-burning fireplace.

The kitchen features stainless steel appliances, a farmhouse sink, and center island. French doors open out to the backyard.

There are also French doors in the first floor master suite.

The finished lower level has a laundry room and storage.

Outside, there is a pool, garden, and bluestone patio.
