EVERYTHING OVER A MILLION
NOT QUITE A MILLION
Sagaponack Gem sold for 5.2M
A Montauk steal for 955,000
An Estate in Bridgehampton. I Had to Have It As I said again last week, I’m a man of action. When I like a piece of real estate, I buy it. That’s it. Soon as possible. Lori Barbaria, a top agent at Douglas Elliman just showed me this incredible house I had not seen before south of the highway at 113 Lockwood Avenue in Bridgehampton. It’s just an amazing place, a great, This gated 3.7 acre estate was originally a 200-year-old Mulford Barn from the 1930s and is now a stately 10,000 Sq. Ft. home. Acclaimed Architect Hugh Huddelson used the open field and historic feeling to create a light-filled imaginative harmonious residence with indoor/ outdoor areas for entertaining and separate wings for privacy. The interior boasts 8 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, and 2 half baths, double height living room, formal dining room, chef caliber kitchen with European appliances, sunroom, screening room, library, billiard room, gym, and den. A gunite pool overlooks Sagaponack Wildlife Reserve. The ideal house for exquisite entertaining.
gracious mansion with wonderful lawns all around. It just took my breath away. It’s on 3.7 acres, with a pool, 8 bedrooms, 8 baths and 2 half baths. What a treat! And only $7,999,000!!! I just had to have it. Signed the contract in the morning, got the title search done by noon and at 4 p.m. had the closing. Cash only. As always. But then, leaving the lawyer’s office, I got a phone call in my car from London. Her Majesty wants me to take over the Bank of England. I’m one of three finalists. I’m English on my mother’s side so it’s okay, but it’s going to take months until there’s a decision, so I won’t know where I will have
to be. Can’t do it, I told the lawyers. They were just packing up. Got to reverse the sale. I’ll pay for all the brokerage fees, bank fees, everything and more for your trouble and time. They all said, well, okay, and so we sat down and I sold it back to them for what I paid for it plus all the rest. So it’s still up for sale. This is such a gem. I only wish I could have it, but I can’t. But you might love this place. I fell in love with it. Extraordinary. Broke my heart. -DR
