If you have an extra $9.995 million to throw at an extra “year-round getaway” house, this five-bedroom, 6,000-square-foot property in Montauk is plenty spacious. And, sadly, nearly $10 million is probably considered a steal for a Hamptons estate on the beach.
The brokers do have one creative approach to make the listing sound more appealing—they also market the lot next to this one. “Adjacent to this beautiful home sits a fabulous 1.7 acre property with existing ranch, but also includes approved plans for a new 5,800 square feet residence with six bedrooms, six-and-a-half bathrooms, infinity pool, garages and landscape. The options here make this a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to outstanding compound use or investment for the future.”
Whether they’re trying to score a double-sale or imply that the new owners of 24 Elm Lane would enjoy having major construction going on next door while they’re trying to relax in their breakfast nook is not clear.
