The nearly five-acre estate at 55 Coopers Neck Lane changed hands on December 8, 2020, a transaction between two limited liability companies. The last asking was $39.995 million. Preston Kaye and Gary Cooper of Hedgerow Exclusive Properties and Terry Cohen of Saunders & Associates shared the exclusive on the property.

The deeds show that back in October, 1384 Meadow Lane in Southampton Village sold and closed at $16 million. An original beach house sits on three acres, overlooking the ocean with 150 feet of frontage and views of Shinnecock Bay. There are plans for a modern home to replace the beach house, and to add an oceanside pool and tennis court. Tim Davis with Corcoran listed it at $21.5 million in 2019. The price was lowered to $19.5 million in February and later $16.95 million.

First built in 1890, the house has been owned by the same family since 1903. Russell and Sandra O’Connor sold the property to Tic & Tac LLC. The family also recently sold 7.67 acres next door at 4 Nostrand Parkway to the Town of Shelter Island for $1.65 million in late 2019, according to The Shelter Island Reporter.

Now 5,400-square-feet, the house has many original features, like a fireplace with wrought-iron flourishes in the library, an authentic butler’s pantry with original wood cabinets, shelves and drawers, and the original iron stove, which, now decorative, remains in the kitchen. The two-story staff wing next to the kitchen has a sitting area, living room and back staircase leading to three finished rooms with bead board. A rolling lawn leads to the beach with a dock and vintage beach cabana that is grandfathered.
