When we first featured the amazing 3-acre farm at 134 Narrow Lane in Sagaponack, our readers thought the home was absolutely beautiful—and clearly, potential buyers agreed. After less than four months on the market, this north-of-the-highway property has gone into contract under the most recent $12.5 million asking price.
We’re not totally surprised that the property was scooped up so quickly—one reader wrote into our tipline to tell us that the open house had what seemed like “100 people there,” and listing agent Dana Trotter from Sotheby’s International Realty confirmed, telling Curbed:
We had an incredible turnout at our open house. I have been doing this over 20 years and have never had the response to a new listing like this. There were probably about 50 brokers there and everyone was in awe and several said they had ‘goosebumps’ about how special the property is. And they all said ‘this is going to go fast.’
The property features a fully renovated 2,600-square-foot farmhouse with two bedrooms originally built in the 1920s, and a brand new 7,300-square-foot main house with four bedrooms, in addition to a two-car garage and five of the original barns that have since been restored.
A restored potato barn hosts three horse stalls, a groom’s lounge with a full bathroom, and a lofted sitting area.
Designed by local architect Val Florio and built by McGrath Builders, the 10-building compound offers a sunken terrace with a hot tub, a heated saltwater gunite pool, and a pool house that was built from the “original Marconi wireless telegraph station that opened on Sagg Main Beach in 1902 and directed rescue traffic from the Titanic”, according to the listing.
Also according to the listing, the home was recently “voted into the Wall Street Journal’s ‘House of the Year’ competition among the 50 ‘House of the Week’ winners.”
