Seems like we just finished reporting on robust real estate activity in the Village of East Hampton when we have to turn around and head back there again.

A transaction making news is the completion of the sale of 132 Apaquogue Road, which some people recognize as the updated, 1896 Grey Gardens carriage house. The buyer—a limited liability company—paid $8.5 million for the 3,516-square-foot residence on 1.1 acres with ocean and reserve views just steps away from Georgica Beach. The 30-foot wainscotted carriage room has a 10-foot ceiling, a fireplace and French doors to a shaded terrace. Other amenities include a tiled garden and dining room, an oversized family room with water-view balconies, fully hedged grounds with a heated pool and a detached two-car garage.

By the way, the seller is listed as the Robinson Grover Trust. Mr. Grover was a teacher and patron of the arts who died in April 2015 at the age of 79. He had been born in Connecticut and his father, Allen, was a journalist who became vice president of Time Inc. The Grey Gardens carriage house had been in the Grover family since 1962. Among his many pursuits, Mr. Grover was a member of the East Hampton Beach Preservation Society and the Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival.

Also recently changing hands in the village was 58 Jericho Road. After paying $7.2 million, the new owner—another LLC—has a 7,270-square-foot manse with seven bedrooms and eight baths on 0.93 acre near Georgica Beach.

“Upon opening the oversized front door, the formal living room’s two-story window sets the stage, illuminating not only the space but showcasing the careful thought and precise execution that went into each detail of the home’s construction,” said Saunders & Associates, which was the listing brokerage. Special features include a mirror-edge pool with spa, a theater with 120-inch projection screen and a fireplace in the master suite.

While we’re in that same neighborhood, we’ll mention 284 Georgica Road, which Kathryn Sutherland has purchased for $5.1 million. What is special about the 4,936-square-foot house with six bedrooms and 6.5 baths is that it sits on a generous 2.25 acres and has deeded access to Jones Creek. The dwelling offers a two-story living room with a fireplace, a dining room, a finished lower level with radiant heat and a media room, as well as a geothermal climate system that was recently installed for efficiency. A large outdoor deck with BBQ station and a heated swimming pool adds entertainment space to the picture. The property is adjacent to a 16-acre reserve area with views facing west of the open fields.
