What $2 Million Buys You Right Now in the Hamptons
Montauk, NY 11954
Pluses: Tons of room, right on the water, plenty of scope to build dream home.
Minuses: House is a teardown, so in addition to paying $2M, you have to build a house.
Amagansett, NY 11930
Pluses: Charming traditional style house on a 1.15 acre plot with a pool.
Minuses: Interiors desperately need freshening up.
3. East Hampton
East Hampton, NY 11937
Pluses: Charming, great opportunity, nice village location.
Minuses: Looks like the interiors haven’t been updated since the Nixon Adminstration.
Sagaponack, NY 11962
Pluses: Pool, tennis, and two acres in Sagaponack.
Minuses: House isn’t huge (2800sf) and kitchens and bathrooms could use updating. But this seems like a good deal.
5. Shinnecock Hills
Hampton Bays, NY 11946
Pluses: Spacious (3400sf), new (built 2007), bayview, and nicely appointed interiors.
Minuses: It’s a McMansion and it’s in Shinnecock. If you can get past that, this house is good value.
