East Hampton Home Once Owned by FDR’s Secretary of Treasury has just sold.
An East Hampton village cottage on the fabled Lily Pond Lane has sold according to the Real Deal. Originally built in 1925 and designed by famed Hamptons architect Grosvenor Atterbury, the beautiful home known as the William H. Woodin Cottage came on the market for $13.75 million about a year ago in April 2019. Woodin served as President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Secretary of Treasury. It cut its asking price once in July down to $12.95 million, and a contract was signed in November. The owner is using an LLC to make the purchase. The stuccoed cottage looks like it could use some interior updates if the new owner plans to keep the existing house, but current features include a fireplace in the living room and a recently renovated kitchen with marble countertops and stainless steel appliances. Outside, the 1.4-acre property includes a pool, a gazebo, and a man-made pond. Homeowners could expand the house up to 6,140 square feet. Brown Harris Stevens agent Peter Turino represented the sale.
