What $2 Million Buys You Right Now in the Hamptons
Pluses: Great ocean views, right across from the water.
Minuses: Small house, needs renovation and/or expansion.
Pluses: Gorgeous house set on 2.6 acres, surrounded by woodland.
Minuses: It's in Springs, not the toniest address. Other than that, we love it.
Pluses: Spacious (6000sf) house set in 1.5 acres of wooded grounds with a nice home theater.
Minuses: Architecturally dated, with weird cubbyholes and angles.
Pluses: Tons of land with 6.5 acres and a pool.
Minuses: The listing says the current house (modest) could be used as a guesthouse. So on top of $2M, a buyer would probably build a house.
Pluses: Right on the water with your own sandy beach. Great for water sports and fishing.
Minuses: Dated, unappealing exterior.
