Do You Love ‘A Deal,’ Have $7 M., and an Active Imagination?

  • Yes?

    Then welcome to your country home…

    This listing, which seems to be quite un-exclusive, is for a six-bed, nine-bath, 9,500-square-foot home that sits on just over five Bridgehampton acres, comes with good, bad and non-news.

    The good?

    Well, other than the aforementioned size, acreage and the fact it’s new construction, this property comes with a heated pool (and accompanying 1,380-square-foot pool house), a marble-countered “professional chef’s kitchen,” five marble fireplaces and sundry other totems of luxury living. And, most importantly, it’s apparently selling for “half-off!”

    The bad?

    Instead of giving us any real sense of what the place looks and feels like, the language seems to steer potential buyers toward using their imaginations. Much is made of the “spectacular water views,” and there are very few helpful pictures, meaning  that we can’t really confirm the quality of any of these perks as the listing is waaaaay light on visual detail (and no floorplan). Also, the maintenance costs would seem to be intense and “half off” will still cost you an asking price of $6.995 million.

    The “non?”

    Almost everything else, including why such a gem has been sitting on the market so long that it’s been reduced by 50 percent from its original asking…
