Editor’s note: An earlier version of this article (and the original PriceSpotter) wrote that this was a house in Springs, but it is in the Northwest Woods area.

Earlier this week, we had readers try and guess the asking price of this tiny beach house in the Northwest Woods neighborhood of East Hampton. Almost half of our readers (or, 43 percent) got it right when they guessed that it was listed for somewhere between $600,000 and $700,000.

The midcentury house is on the market for $695,000 with Saunders real estate agent Claudia Spinelli.

Standing a modest 1,000 square feet in size, there’s only three bedrooms and one bathroom inside—so we’re thinking that the new owners are going to want to add another bathroom. Built in 1963, features include hardwood floors throughout, a nice wide open floorplan in the living and dining rooms, and a wall of windows that overlooks the backyard with distant views out to a creek that leads into Three Mile Harbor. There’s also a wood-burning fireplace and an eat-in kitchen.

The property has room for a pool on 0.4 acres of land. Residents will have access to a community beach and a dock where they can keep a boat.

According to PropertyShark, the house was last purchased in 2004 for $125,000. What do our readers think of the current asking price?

An open floorplan, fireplace, and hardwood floors.
The kitchen could use an update, but the layout is solid.
There’s just one bathroom in the house.
Three bedrooms.
Distant water views out to a creek that leads into Three Mile Harbor.
