    Joe Farrell, a Hamptons builder dubbed “King of McMansions,” is stirring up a heated backlash with plans to construct a 5,531-square-foot home in a historic Southampton neighborhood.

    Hedge fund manager John Paulson, who made his own billions betting on the national housing market collapse and shorting subprime mortgages in 2007, is the latest high-profile opponent to wade into a group of socialites, artists, developers and political family scions that have written letters to the area’s village review board. The home, they collectively say, threatens the character, “peace and tranquility” of the neighborhood. [more]

    A five-member board of trustees, tasked with tending to the town of Southampton’s underwater land and public access, allegedly dispensed $1.5 million with no oversight over a period of five years until town citizens cracked down with a lawsuit, according to a press report.

    The group’s power stemmed from a royal mandate in 1686 known as the Dongan Patent, which gave the trustees access to a 12-member staff and salaries totaling $476,955 out of a total budget of $820,319. [more]

  • The Linden estate in Southampton

    Billionaire Jim Clark appears to have reneged on the purchase of the nine-acre Southampton estate he went into contract for about eight months ago, according to a report from Curbed. The software magnate and his wife, an Australian model, supposedly bought the sprawling grounds, called the Linden Estate, last July, Curbed said. Previously, the home sat on the market for four years, with asking prices as high as $60 million. The seller was Jurgen Friedrich, the former CEO of the Esprit clothing brand in Europe. [more]

  • The estate in Southhampton

    A 4.3-acre Southampton estate that was the first oceanfront property to hit the market following Hurricane Sandy has found a buyer within three months, Curbed reported. The five-bedroom home had been listed for $30 million with Harald Grant of Sotheby’s International Realty. The quick turnaround is even more surprising, considering the damage that Sandy wreaked on the Hamptons waterfront, and that oceanfront homes made up so few of the priciest deals on the East End last year….

    From the January issue: When Josh Guberman set out to market the house he’d just constructed at 78 Pheasant Close East in Southampton Village, he wasn’t content to hire a professional stager, as most developers do. Instead, he personally stocked the 1,500-bottle wine cellar with rosé and champagne, and decorated the home’s great room with orchids and trays of wheatgrass. In fact, while staging is now standard in New York City new-construction condos, it’s rare in Hamptons spec homes, explained Susan Breitenbach, the Corcoran Group senior vice president who listed 78 Pheasant Close for $8.75 million last month. [more]

  • From left: Tory Burch and her Southampton estate

    Since clothing designer Tory Burch sold her Meadow Lane mansion at a loss this fall, some of her Southampton neighbors have worried that the $11 million sales price would lower the value of their own nearby properties.

    An unnamed source told the New York Post that, despite the water damage Burch’s home had sustained from broken pipes, “everyone in the neighborhood is staggered that she sold it at such a low price. It has sparked a lot of worry if this will affect the market and their own homes, but also a lot of speculation as to why she sold it off so cheaply.” [more]

  • A Southampton couple had to tear down a home mid-construction when they realized it was built too far from the curb to allow for a backyard pool, the New York Post reported. Eric and Margaret Friedberg had purchased a Huntting Street home for $2.478 million and demolished the existing 1,674-square-foot house and pool to make room for a brand new home. Workers had completed about $100,000 to $150,000 of work on the new house, including the framing for the first floor and part of the second floor. [more]
