Dylan Eckardt, better known as the “Prince of Montauk,” has just snagged what could be one of the biggest exclusives in Hamptons history. The bad boy of real estate — who has made a splash on the market in recent years — just listed 9.4 acres of vacant oceanfront property in Amagansett.
The asking price: $50 million. And, already there has been interest.
Chris Whittle, the embattled education entrepreneur, has slashed the price of his expansive waterfront compound in East Hampton to $95 million, down from $140 million when it first hit the market in 2014.
“The only available property of its kind on the market, it’s a true storybook opportunity to own one of the most serene and rarified properties in the Hamptons,” says Joseph De Sane, the managing director at Bespoke, which re-listed 90 and 100 Briar Patch Road on February 10.
As we approach the anniversary of the COVID-19 arrival in New York and the subsequent shutdown, it is no surprise that one area of the home that rose in importance was the workout room.
The pandemic forced gyms to shutter for months, causing people to either find new ways to exercise at home or pack on the pounds (The COVID-15 is real!). While realtors worked over time in 2020 to find people fleeing New York City for the Hamptons, one of the most requested amenities on buyers’ wish lists has been personal space to workout.
Bridgehampton has a vibrant Main Street that buyers want to be close to. Now imagine finding a one acre-plus property that offers privacy, yet still proximity to Main Street and a chance to create your dream house.
The parcel at 275 Narrow Lane offers just that. Listed with J.B. Andreassi and Bradlee Phillips of Nest Seekers International, the flat, 1.16-acre property is asking $1.295 million.
January 2021 had a 37% increase in listings going into contract over January 2020. The first two weeks of February 2021 have already surpassed the entire month of February 2020 for the number of contracts signed, setting the Hamptons up for what could potentially be its biggest sales year of the century thus far.
