This property first came onto the market back in the halcyon days of 2014. It’s lovely, but was pricey at $21.5 million. Now it’s the less-halcyon days of 2017 and the price is way, way down to $16.9 million. It’s represented by Patricia Wadzinski and Frank Newbold at Sotheby’s.
So what’s so great about the property? There are 3.2 acres on the north side of Further Lane, including a traditional home, fake-turf tennis court intelligently tucked away, pool, and the three happiest words in the English language: hidden spa grotto.
Though this house is owned by a couple, one of whom is a designer, we’re slightly underwhelmed by the interiors; they’ve probably been staged and the good furniture and art stored. But that’s all easily fixable. We’re absolutely blown away by the beautifully designed landscaping (coughspagrottocough), though.
To get to the details: the house is 7400 square feet with five bedrooms and five full and three half baths. There’s a long screened-in porch that runs the length of the house, and a fabulous master bathroom with stainless-steel tub, and two showers: a glassed-in steam shower and a rainfall shower, both with river stone floors. The roof deck offers an ocean view. Outside, there’s an oversized pool, a tea-house-style pool house with gym, summer kitchen and changing room, along with a three car garage. Surely someone will snap this place up soon.
