290 Further Lane, East Hampton: $40M

Copy Link

When this 6-acre oceanfront property sold earlier this year for $40 million, it was the most expensive single-family real estate transaction in the Hamptons since 2016. And even though Villa Maria topped this year’s chart, that technically sold to two separate buyers.

Designed by Francis Fleetwood in 1995, the 10,000-square-foot home previously belonged to James and Ellen Marcus. Before passing away in 2015, James Marcus was a retired partner at Goldman Sachs and the former board chairman of the Metropolitan Opera.

Vince Camuto’s iconic bayfront property—which was once a nunnery and is considered a Long Island landmark—finally sold this year as three separate parcels between two buyers, with the main house selling for $26.1 million. The 15-acre property was originally listed for $100 million in 2008, but the compound was most recently on the market for $72 million.

477 Little Plains Road, Southampton: $24M

Copy Link

We were pleasantly surprised by this Southampton estate section property. When it first came on the market for $22.5 million, we were thinking that it would need to go down in price, but it actually raised its asking price to $24 million and found a buyer within just a few months.

Sited on 4 acres of land that’s just 200 feet from the ocean, this property has rose gardens, specimen plantings, an outdoor dining pavilion, a pool, and a 6,500-square-foot home.

Lasata, East Hampton: $24M

Copy Link

Jackie Kennedy Onassis’s Hamptons summer house sold in January of this year after coming on the market in September of 2016. The main house went for $24 million, making it one of the priciest sales this year.

Lasata—which has been renovated—spans 8,500 square feet and is host to 10 bedrooms, 10 full bathrooms, and two half-bathrooms. There’s also a guest house and a pool house. Located at 121 Further Lane, the property is close to ocean beaches.

240 Old Montauk Highway, Montauk: $22.8M

Copy Link

This gorgeous oceanfront Montauk house wasn’t even technically listed for sale when it sold for nearly $23 million. The sale is the highest residential sale in Montauk on the ocean aside from the $50 million sale of Andy Warhol’s former Hamptons property, Eothen, which once belonged to J. Crew’s Mickey Drexler, and is currently owned by art collector, Adam Lindemann.

719 Ocean Road, Bridgehampton: $22.7M

Waterfront on Sagg Pond, this 4.2-acre property was actually listed for a lower $19.5 million when it came on the market in August of 2017. It sold above ask earlier this year in February.

79 Surfside Drive, Bridgehampton: $18.8M

This ’80s oceanfront modern in Bridgehampton was first asking $21.5 million when it came on the market in May. But the house quickly found a buyer and sold within just a few months, closing at $18.8 million.

86 Bay Lane, Water Mill: $18.75M

Copy Link

This bayfront house in Water Mill was originally asking nearly $30 million when it came on the market in March of 2015, but after a few price cuts, the 4.6-acre property sold for a fraction of the original listing.

Designed by architect Robert A.M. Stern in 1986, this 6,100-square-foot home has seven bedrooms, five full bathrooms, two half-bathrooms, a double-height entry hall, a built-in bar in the living room, and an office that occupies a cupola. 

19 Chauncey Close, East Hampton: $17.28M

Copy Link

This Georgica section pondfront East Hampton home sold for below the most recent $19.5 million asking price.

Standing 6,100 square feet, the shingled main house has five bedrooms and five full bathrooms, views over Georgica Pond and out to the Atlantic Ocean, three fireplaces, a great room, hardwood floors, and wood beams inside the home that were once part of a 16th century English barn at Hever Castle in Kent, which was Anne Boleyn’s residence.
