Town Line Road is the Hamptons' new hot address with new construction being king on both sides of the road, and, Wainscott challenging the supremacy of Sagaponack.
East Hampton, NY (PRWEB) September 30, 2013
Three listings totaling $45 million on Town Line Road -- straddling the Town of Southampton’s Sagaponack and the Town of East Hampton’s Wainscott -- have sold within five months of each other, and one, just weeks after being listed, by Hamptons luxury real estate broker Gary DePersia of The Corcoran Group http://www.myhamptonhomes.com.
“Yes, Hamptons real estate is really sizzling but what’s interesting here is the signal about Town Line Road. It’s the Hamptons’ new hot address with new construction being king on both sides of the road, and, Wainscott challenging the supremacy of Sagaponack,” says Gary DePersia.
“Each side of Town Line Road has the same open, farmy and beachy feel. Yet there is more room for growth on the East Hampton side where the Town has been more generous with less building restrictions as compared to the Village of Sagaponack. Wainscott is poised for increased popularity among those seeking the benefits of new construction homes over the coming years.”
On the eastern side of the road, in the seven-square-mile hamlet of Wainscott, are two contiguous Val Florio designed and Lifton-Green built residences listed at $14.9 million and $16.95 million. Both are of modern shingle style with four fireplaces, finished lower level, wine cellar, gym, sauna, optional movie theater, staff accommodations, three-car garage, gunite pool, tennis court and deluxe landscaping with specimen trees.
The first of the pair, which was completed in late 2012 and which closed in June, is an 11,000+-square-foot, eight-bedroom gated estate on two-acres and only six properties from the ocean. http://www.myhamptonhomes.com/Wainscott-real-estate-1346470537-1.php
The second, closing just last week, is an 11,950-square-foot, eight-bedroom gated-estate framed by ocean, pond and farm fields, is the newest built in 2013. This property was in contract just two weeks from being finished and going on the market for sale. http://www.myhamptonhomes.com/Wainscott-real-estate-1375284501-1.php
“As the only developer to have accomplished the sale of two properties in this price bracket within months of each other this year, Lifton-Green has thrown the gauntlet down and re-affirmed their position among the hierarchy of Hamptons builders,” adds DePersia.
On the Sagaponack side, a $13.95 million residence with architecture by Michael Behringer and completed in 2013, sits on 1.3 acres with three sides of agriculture reserve. The 6,000-square-foot, seven-bedroom residence is a contemporary barn-like structure with 2,500-square-feet on its lower level accessed by staircases and an elevator. Developed hand-in-hand with the Sagaponack Village Historical Board by builder-developer Michael Frank, it complements an original 1840s 1,600-foot farmhouse, relocated to a corner of the once John Strong Family property, and, restored as a four-room, two-bath cottage connected by a unique tunnel to the main residence. With new zoning rules anticipated, this compound with around 11,000-square-feet of livable square footage, nine bedrooms and 10.5 baths can never be duplicated. http://www.myhamptonhomes.com/Sagaponack-real-estate-1353006989-1.php
