A south-of-the-highway Georgica section compound with an artistic history has gone into contract.

The properties at 59 Georgica Road and 34 Darby Lane in East Hampton have both had famed artistic residents. The two houses went on the market together for $11.8 million back in April of this year and have received several price cuts during their time available for sale. Most recently, the compound was listed for $9,745,000 with Brown Harris Stevens agent, Martha Gundersen.

The 59 Georgica Road address was once home to musical couple Phyllis Newman and Adolph Green, however the house that currently exists was not the one that they lived in, and was more recently built in 2006. It has nearly 4,300 square feet, three bedrooms, and three and a half bathrooms on over an acre of land, and was on the market by itself for $4.25 million.

Richard Eckstract—a world-renowned art collector—was once the owner of the property at 34 Darby Lane, which stands 4,871 square feet in size with four bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms on over 2 acres of land. The exterior also includes a detached two-car garage and a heated pool with a grotto. It was on the market for $5,495,000 by itself.

Because the houses were available both together and by themselves, we were sort of expecting to see the two properties sell separately. What do you think the compound will finally sell for? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
