A Hamptons home famous for its appearance in “Seinfeld” has sold for a deep discount.

The Amagansett house at 45 Whalers Lane spent about a year on the market before selling for $5.725 million, roughly $3 million less than its initial asking price, according to Curbed.

The Corcoran Group listed the home in February for $8.75 million and gave it a price cut in April to $7.9 million before its eventual $5.725 million sale. It was featured in the “Seinfeld” episode “The Hamptons,” best known as the one where George has an unfortunate incident with “shrinkage.” The home was also featured in the 1998 disaster movie “Deep Impact.”

It features a three-level bunker used by the Coast Guard during World War II as a lookout point for land or sea attacks, along with four bedrooms, two fireplaces and a heated pool. [Curbed]Eddie Small
