Even after the $5 million price cut, the 10-acre property is still the most expensive single-family home available on Parsonage Lane, followed by the contemporary estate at the 289 address seeking $17.95 million.
An open floorplan maximizes the space in the living and dining room, highlighted by the eat-in kitchen and adjacent double-height dining room. The double-height library loft can be found on the second level.
During the prohibition era of the 1920s, this house is rumored to have served as a place where the owner was "rum-running" out of a 3-bay garage on the property that he specifically built for his bootlegging.
The property was once part of the Cody House compound—a 5.5-acre waterfront property with four subdividable lots on Georgica Pond. Businessman David Geffen purchased all four lots back in 2014 for $52 million from Courtney Sale Ross.
New owners will particularly enjoy relaxing on an oceanview teak rooftop deck. The exterior living space offers beautiful gardens, a heated pool with a waterfall, and a poolside cabana with a gym, a summer kitchen, and a changing room.
We love that the hardwood floors and white walls found throughout the home create a neutral palette, but accent wallpapers and the sun room’s black and white tiled floors add unique pops of color and style.
We absolutely adore the cherry red front door that adds a pop of color against the shingled exterior. A set of double sliding doors off the living room lead out to the outdoor living space, where one will find brand new mahogany decking and a heated gunite pool.
Right now, the century-old home doesn’t look like much without furnishing or completed renovations—but between the hardwood floors, brick details, and cute, compact space, the home has a lot of potential.
French doors lead to the exterior living space, which is particularly beautiful—between the landscaping and pergola-covered dining terrace next to the pool, the outside feels, as the listing describes it, "magical."
The house was originally designed by architect Paul Lester Weiner, who is known for the historical Contempora House in Rockland County, New York, and for his neighborhood development project of Washington Square in New York City in 1958.
The restored 1,000-square-foot home was part of noted architect Richard Bender’s "Amenity" project in the early ’60s, which consisted of a collection of cottages on 20 acres of private land surrounded by woodlands.
