Loaded with charm, just down the street from the ocean and Two Mile Hollow Beach, and one of only a handful of properties in East Hampton affording the rare opportunity to build two houses on one lot, this circa-1745 gem recently sold and closed. Last asking price was $1,749,000.
Once home to the Riding Club of East Hampton, where a young Jacqueline Bouvier learned to ride, the .9-acre former “Abraham Baker House” property abuts the village’s Estate Section and carries the special distinction of being both in the Village and the Town. Designated with a Special Historic Landmark by East Hampton Town, the generous South-of-the-Highway property comprises just under an acre of buildable land; a still-standing 275-year-old two-story shingle-style home with three bedrooms, three full baths and two fireplaces; room for a pool; and an East Hampton Village address with incredibly low taxes.
Listing agents were Dawn Watson and Enzo Morabito of Douglas Elliman. Buyer’s agents were Kathy Zappola and Scott Strough of Compass.
