The historic Normandy House, located at 408 and 412 First Neck Lane in Southampton, just cut $6 million from its asking price, putting it for sale at an even $50 million. The home has been on and off the market several times in the past few years, most recently going into contract in September of 2013 under a $29.75 million asking price and selling later that year.

Last July, the home went back up for sale along with the adjacent empty 3-acre lot with a whopping $65 million asking price—though not without some push back. When it went on the market, it was criticized for being overpriced. Just five months ago in April, $9 million was docked from the asking price.

Built in 1930, the estate stands 8,000 square feet with nine bedrooms and eight and a half bathrooms. The lakefront compound is on 8.32 acres in total. Renovations have been done by architect and designer Tony Inagro, builder Ed Bulgin, and landscape architect Edmund Hollander. None of the renovations have altered the floor plan of the original Polhemus & Coffin design.

Features include a screened-in porch, sunroom, master suite with water views and a private balcony, a heated gunite pool, tennis court, and a pool house that’s been grandfathered in—due to its proximity to the water, it wouldn’t have been able to have been built with environmental regulations currently in place.
