The Real Deal New York

Southampton’s first listing post-Sandy in contract

February 07, 2013 03:00PM

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.

Grant told The Real Deal in November, shortly after the storm, that the 7,000-square-foot property had “no damage whatsoever” from the hurricane. However, it is unclear whether the new owner will keep the barn-style house, which also includes a three-car garage, a heated gunite pool and a guesthouse. [Curbed]Sanna Chu
