Tiny Villages, Huge Sales

They may be small, but two of the tiniest villages in the Town of Southampton can at times produce some of the biggest sales. Sagaponack, for example, is routinely in the top five richest zip codes in the country. One example of why is the recent sale of 164 Town Line Road, which went for $11.5 million to a buyer shielded by a limited liability company.

The 6,800-square-foot residence on 0.7 acre has six bedrooms and 6.5 baths. We’re informed that from the oceanview roof deck down to the finished lower level, the house, just a few hundred feet to the beach, “exudes a simplistic sophistication.” A double-height entry welcomes with white-washed oak floors that fan out past the powder room and an architecturally interesting staircase to the expansive great room with a wall of doors opening to the outside. A more intimate living room is warmed by its own fireplace. The custom-designed kitchen with breakfast area, large center island, and professional appliances is enhanced by a butler’s pantry leading to the formal dining room.

Upstairs, the master bedroom suite offers a bath, a pair of walk-in closets, and a private balcony. Three additional bedrooms with baths en-suite, including one with its own balcony, complete the second floor. A short staircase rises to the roof deck with ample room for seating that looks out across much of Sagaponack and Wainscott to the nearby ocean. The finished lower level is complete with gym, sauna, 7,500-bottle wine cellar, recreation room, a pair of bedrooms serviced by a spa-like bathroom, laundry center, and a room specifically designed for a home theater. An elevator connects all three floors of living space. Outside stone patios and an expansive lawn frame the heated pool with spa. Other features include a full-house generator, an internet-controlled HVAC system, an audio system, and a radiant-heated garage.

North Haven is no slouch either in the eight-figure sales field, as evidenced by the sale of 18 Bay View Court (also to an LLC) for $10 million.

The 6,100-square-foot residence on a generous 2.6 acres has six bedrooms and 5.5 baths and sits on a bluff with bay views and 250 feet of water frontage. It is suggested that the new owner can “entertain effortlessly” with a large gourmet kitchen, formal dining room, and media room. The large master suite has a private waterview balcony and fireplace. The property is within a gated community with mooring rights for a boat, a private beach, dock, and tennis.
