Former Southampton Village Car dealership building sells for $2.25 Million
An Art Deco-style former car dealership in Southampton Village sold last month for $2.25 million and the new owners say they do not plan to tear the iconic structure down. David and Simone Levinson, who purchased the former B&M Automotive building at the corner of Pond Lane and Hill Street, plan to give the building a face-lift and clean up the inside, according to Hal Zwick, director of commercial real estate at Town and Country Real Estate.
However, until the time comes that the village has a sewer district in place, the use of the property is strictly limited to a non-wet use. That means no restaurants. The building dates back to 1951 and displays many aspects of the Art Deco-style — curved windows, stucco and sheet metal, but it was not listed as historical in village documents.
Linda Kabot and Bob Tomich, the listing brokers with Town & Country, confirmed in early September that the building was sold on August 22. Ms. Kabot represented the former owners of the property, the Hauquitz family. The property was originally on the market for $4.2 million.
South of the Highway Sagaponack Compound With 17 Acres Wants $25M
Located on Sagg Main Street in Sagaponack — and desirably situated south of the highway — a compound spanning nearly 17 acres in size has just come on the market for $25 million. The property includes three single and separate lots including one 1.6-acre lot with a 6,436-square-foot farmhouse. Inside the farmhouse, there are seven bedrooms, four full baths, and two half-baths. The 2.4-acre lot is buildable while the 12.7-acre property is agricultural reserve. So, while only a small portion of the property is buildable, it could be a great option for people looking for a private family compound. Homeowners will be about a mile and a half north of the ocean at Sagg Main Beach, and just over a mile south of Wolffer Vineyards. Douglas Elliman agent Enzo Morabito represents the listing.
