Matt Lauer slashes Sag Harbor home price by $2M to $14.9M

Not finding any takers for his 25-acre spread in Sag Harbor, “The Today Show” host has once again reduced its price, this time by $2.1 million, to $14.9 million. It’s the second price cut since the 8,000-square-foot digs first hit the market for $18 million about a year ago, Behind the Hedges reported. Designed by architect Daniel Romualdez and built in 2004, the home contains six bedrooms, six full and two half-bathrooms, cathedral ceilings in the great room, multiple terraces, a heated pool, pool house and tennis court. Susan Breitenbach of the Corcoran Group has the listing. [BTH]

Westhampton social club well underway
The 14-suite Dune Deck club brings new meaning to the words “exclusive access.” On July 1, the resort will open to members who pay an annual fee to access the 594 square-foot units, an in-house restaurant, private beach and pool that overlooks the ocean, according to 27East. Owned and operated by the Discovery Land Company, the 32,141-square-foot property will ultimately feature 33 two-room suites when it’s complete. Discovery Land purchased the property — formerly a 69-unit complex —  in 2015 for $19 million and razed the former structure. [27E]

Bravo’s “Summer House” finally finds filming location in Southampton

As the gregarious neighbor of East Hampton, the village of Southampton has permitted Bravo to film the second season of “Summer House.” Set on five acres in Water Mill, the home of the shoot contains eight bedrooms, nine baths, a pool and a billiard table. But even if Southampton allowed the cast and crew in, the town government isn’t too thrilled about reality shows.  The New York Post reported that village mayor Mark Epley recently remarked that, “We don’t miss the Kardashians,” in reference to the reality show that the siblings filmed there in 2014. [Page Six]

Hop aboard this historic East Hampton vessel for $1.25M

Even for East Hampton, $1.25 million is a lot to shell out for a 1,100-square-foot pad. But this house comes with something that’s arguably priceless: history. Not only was the home built 378 years ago in 1639, it’s made out of wood from an actual ship. Its origins are verified by the East Hampton Historical Society. Ann Marie Pallister and Justin Agnello of Douglas Elliman share the listing. [TRD]

East Hampton featured in murder love triangle documentary for sale at $12.7M

This home has it all: sex, murder, and at 7,000 square feet, certainly the space to party. The property at hand, 59 Middle Lane, is also the title of a 2012 documentary about two adopted twins whose millionaire father, Ted Ammon, was found murdered in the upstairs bedroom of the home. The suspects were their mother and the man with whom she was having an affair, Daniel Pelosi, who was convicted on murder charges in 2004. Aside from its dark history, the home features six bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms, a solarium, library, gourmet kitchen, library, gym, heated pool and pool house. Judi Desiderio of Town & Country has the listing. [Curbed]
