For your cocktail party chatter

Seven acres of land, and a stunning new 15,000sf house by Blaze Makoid, along with deeded access to Sagg Pond, sold for a stunning price in October.
We don't even know what the heck is going on with Normandy House. It's on and off the market at different price points all the time, but it's recorded as a transfer in April this year for $40M, so it's on the list.
2.4 acres of oceanfront land sold by EDM honcho Robert X Sillerman traded in January.
1099 Meadow Lane also belonged to Robert Sillerman; it's the 3.5 acres of empty bayfront land shown in blue.
196 Bay Lane, with 2.7 bayfront acres and a 10,000sf house decorated by Steven Gambrel, sold in January. Original ask was $33M.
This property, which was asking $58M several years ago, finally sold this year for $22M, a stunning $36M discount.
