Eight months and a price reduction later, the 19th-century home designed by Joseph Greenleaf Thorpe has found a buyer and a contract has been signed under the most recent $8.95 million asking price.
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.
Located at 32 Beach Lane in Westhampton Beach, this film-featured home has over 7,000 square feet of living space on nearly 2 acres of land—so there’s plenty of room for family reunions at this East End retreat.
Originally built in 1906 (the same year the White died), the current owners purchased the iconic estate in 2011 for $5.4 million and sought to restore the home back to its original early 20th century glory. In 2014, it went up for sale with a $15.5 million asking price.
Modeled after an Irish castle and boasting a place on the National Register of Historic Places, Balcastle stands 2,900 square feet with four bedrooms and four bathrooms on a half-acre.

Though the property served as the Coast Guard station when it was first built, it was decommissioned in 1954 and was moved to its current location at 136 Benson Drive two years later in 1956.
The town permitted a 900-square-foot addition adjacent to the kitchen which is not considered to be historically significant. There are no restrictions on what the new owners could make that space into.

Inside, there are four bedrooms, two full bathrooms, two half-bathrooms, and six fireplaces. The listing claims that the Andrews House is sited on "perhaps the best location of any of the Seven Sisters" on 2.3 acres of land.
Parts of the interiors could definitely benefit from a face lift—especially since the home looks quite dark—but we’re really hoping that this 325-year-old gem doesn’t get torn down.
Some of the original details have been maintained (though restored), such as the millwork and hand-pegged wood beams, but 21st century amenities like smart home technology and new materials had been added to modernize the home.
In 2005, the town purchased what’s known as a historic preservation easement on the home so that the key features of the structure would be preserved.
The landscaping was designed by Edwina von Gal, whose client list includes names like Calvin Klein and Ina Garten.

Though the property at 350 Pantigo Road is now an empty lot, it was once the East Hampton Riding Academy, which is where the former first lady rode her horse, Buttercup.
The home has only been in the hands of two families since it was built: the Fishers, and the Akin family, who purchased it from Fisher’s wife in 1954 after he died several years earlier.
Originally built in the 1887 and renovated by Edward P. Morse in 1919, Villa Maria once served as a convent, has had many notable residents, and is considered a Long Island landmark.
