The drawn-out saga at 6 Union Street in Southampton finally ended last week, with the closing of its $1.3 million sale. The new owners, a group including Mitch Winston of Amagansett and Mark Egerman of Beverly Hills, California, can now begin restoring the derelict 210-year-old house. It last traded hands in 2008, according to East Hampton Star, but soon went into foreclosure in a larger mortgage scheme that landed former Suffolk lawmaker George Guldi in prison. Winston and Egerman won the 4,000-square-foot property in an auction this June, but they too were curtailed — this time by a woman who claimed in a lawsuit that she had a financial interest in the house. The case was dismissed late August. [EHS] — Cathaleen Chen
