Earlier this week, we had readers try to guess the asking price of a Springs cottage, owned by designer Andrew Taiani. The category with the most votes—between $1.5 million and $1.75 million—was the correct answer, as the home has recently relisted with an asking price of $1,595,000 under Sotheby’s International Realty agents, Ann Ciardullo and Keith Green.

In just over 1,500 square feet, there are three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. Interiors include a double-height great room with a surrounding second-floor gallery, where one will find an office and sitting room. There’s also a contemporary kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, an adjacent dining room, and dark hardwood floors throughout.

Outside, new homeowners will arrive at the hedged 0.91-acre property through a gated entry and approach the cottage. Unfortunately the property doesn’t have a pool, but there is a meditation gazebo and lounging and dining space in the backyard.

In 2005, the designer purchased the residence for $795,000, renovated it, and then in 2012 listed it for a higher $1,995,000, which is what it was asking for the five years that it was on the market. Finally, in 2017 the listing was removed and now Taiani has put it back up for sale.
