Beautiful house, stunning grounds, impeccable location in East Hampton’s estate section: so what’s the downside to this property? Sadly, it was the site of the most notorious murder in recent times in the Hamptons, that of Ted Ammon, who was found dead in the upstairs bedroom. His wife and the man she was having an affair with were accused; wife Generosa died of cancer shortly after and her boyfriend was convicted of the murder. Their ten year old twins inherited.
You have to feel for listing agent Judi Desiderio of Town & Country; this won’t be an easy sale. However, as we said, the property is just stunning inside and out. The 7,000-square-foot house, built in 1995, boasts six bedrooms, six-and-a-half bathrooms, a sunroom, library and gym. Outside, there are 2.2 acres of land with a pond, pool, pool house, and a three car garage. Asking price for all this is $12.7 million, which would be reasonable if the house didn’t have its history. As it is, we think it’s going to sit. Hopefully not, though. We think it would be great if some deep pocketed person bought the place and added happy family memories to its history.
