Sited on a quarter-acre of land, the compact 900-square-foot house offers just two bedrooms and one bathroom. Originally built in 1975, the house needs some work, but we think that it has a lot of potential.
Montauk is all about being just steps from the ocean at any given time, and it looks like the new owners of this compact Ditch Plains beach house will be exactly that after purchasing the property for $1,095,000.
Some work will need to be done to bring the house up to date, and it may be a bit small for some people’s taste, but the 0.69-acre property is in a desirable south-of-the-highway Hither Hills location.
Originally listed for $1.9M back in May of 2018, the shingled house saw just one price cut during its time available for sale. In August, the asking price went down to $1.7M, which is what it was most recently listed for when a contract was signed.
At the very end of October, the stylish shingled house came on the market for $1,175,000 with Corcoran Group agents Michael Lynch and Betsy Cronley, was in contract by mid-November, and closed earlier this week for slightly under ask.
The current house was built in 1949, spans 2,200 square feet in size, and has three bedrooms and three bathrooms. Inside, the cottage hosts an open floorplan, a large bay window in the living room, water views throughout, and a wood-burning fireplace.
Sited in an extremely private location where one can’t hear any traffic, the property includes a 7,000-square-foot home with five bedrooms and five bathrooms, a 2-acre pond, meadows, trails, two natural 100-foot jetties, and 400 feet of direct ocean frontage.
Designed by architect James Biber in 2006, the property has been honored by the American Institute of Architects and the American Architecture Awards. Each property has about 2 acres of land, totaling 4.1 acres and offering 300 feet of direct ocean frontage.
Leslie Danzis—a jewelry designer who launched her first collection at 20 years old and whose lines have been in stores like Saks Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman, and Nordstrom—has listed her Quogue home for $1,895,000.
The property was purchased in 1992 by frame dealer Eli Wilner and his wife for just $630,000. However, at the time, there were absolutely no permits in place and buying the property without building permits was a risk.
