After just 40 days on the market, a property being developed in Water Mill went into contract. The house at 424 Seven Ponds Towd Road in Water Mill is not set for completion until July 2021, but the Bodenchak team, led by Frank and Dawn Bodenchak at Sotheby’s International Realty, put together the deal for the buyer and the seller, they recently announced. The last ask was $6.45 million

With the house under construction, the buyer is able to tailor the house to their needs, the Bodenchaks have said. The 8,500-square-foot home is set on 1.1 acres with scenic farm vistas and 18 acres of protected reserve two properties to the north and 48 acres of farm to the south. Plans call for eight bedrooms and nine and a half baths with 5,500 square feet of living space above grade. Two master suites, one on the first floor and one on the second, are also planned  with a state-of-the-art wellness center on the lower level. A heated, gunite pool with spa and tennis court are also in the works.

Also under contract is the property at 37 David’s Lane in East Hampton Village, where the last ask was $7.5 million. Originally built in 1915, the four-bedroom, four and a half-bath house has been renovated and refreshed, according to the listing with Tim Davis and Thomas P. Davis of Corcoran. Adam Hofer of Douglas Elliman brought the buyer to the table.
