Now asking $11.5 million, the home at 33 Ocean Avenue in East Hampton has cut $2.4 million from the asking price. It was asking $13.9 million when it was listed for sale in February—making this the first price cut that it’s seen since coming on the market.
Built in 1975, the home was designed by Robert A.M. Stern and features six bedrooms and six bathrooms in 7,500 square feet of living space.
There are views of Hook Pond, bleached wood floors, a second-floor master wing with ocean views, a heated gunite pool and spa—all on three acres of land.
The property once belonged to sculptor Norman Mercer and his wife, garden designer Carol Mary Mercer. Mr. Mercer designed lucite sculptures, while Mrs. Mercer designed gardens that went on to be featured in many publications—including Hallmark’s calendar of roses.
Mr. Mercer passed away in 2007, and Mrs. Mercer passed away in November of 2016.
