Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost eyeing $8M Montauk condo
Actress Scarlett Johansson and beau Colin Jost, head writer of Saturday Night Live, are scoping out a condominium at Gurney’s in Montauk, according to the New York Post. They walked through a five-bedroom pad that’s going for $7.95 million, down from its original ask for $8.49 million. The 4,100-square-foot unit, which is the most expensive of the eight remaining condos, has private parking and beach cabana. Chris Coleman of Saunders & Associates is handling the listing. [TRD]

Golfer Raymond Floyd sells Southampton estate for $17.5M
The golfer Raymond Floyd offloaded his Southampton estate for $17.5M after knocking down the price from nearly $25 million and even offering to sell it off in pieces, Curbed reported. The buyer took the entire thing for its most recent price. The estate, which was built in 1999, features a main house, a guest house and 12 bedrooms, 12 full bathrooms, 3 partial bathrooms within those two buildings. The grounds include a heated gunite pool, tennis court, gardens and covered porches. The main house, dubbed “Mulligan,” has a gym, wine cellar, laundry facilities, butler’s pantry, an attached two-car garage, among other amenities. The listing was handled by Harald and Bruce Grant of Sotheby’s International Realty. [Curbed]

Hamptons home sales up in Q2
The total number of sales was up in the second quarter of 2018 by three percent compared to the same time last year, according to data compiled and published by local brokerage Town & Country. The median home sales price, $1.18 million, was up seven percent compared to the same quarter in 2017. Individual markets within the Hamptons looked a little different with five of those monitored by T&C up, but another five down and two others flat. East Hampton saw the most home sales ending the quarter, with 97 sales. [Town and Country]

East Hampton home designed to extend occupant’s life lists for $2.5M
A unique home in East Hampton has hit the market for just under $2.5 million. Dubbed the Bioscleave House, the home was designed by artist couple Madeline Gins and Arakawa and features a 3,400-square-foot interior pulsating with bold colors, an undulating floor, odd shapes and a wide-open space. The bizarre structure and colors are meant “to stimulate the senses,” which Gins and Arakawa believed would in turn extend the occupant’s lifespan. Technically, it has four bedrooms along with two-and-a-half bathrooms. The original A-frame was designed by Carl Koch back in the 1960s and then expanded to its current form in 1999. Brown Harris Stevens’ Jose DosSantos is handling the listing. [Curbed]

Southampton official quickly withdraws his proposed moratorium on some town development
The newest member of the Southampton Town Board, Tommy John Schiavoni, withdrew his application to halt all development that could threaten the town’s water supply, 27East reported. He pulled his proposal on Thursday, six days before it was due for a vote. Originally, he wanted a six-month moratorium. Critics worried the measure would complicate a $100 million lawsuit filed against the town by the Discovery Land Corporation earlier this year. The board had rejected Discovery’s proposal for “The Hills at Southampton” in East Quogue which would bring 118-home subdivision and golf course. The board believed it’d threaten the town’s water supply and the developers are now trying to reapply with a different plan. Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman said it would be impossible for the town to rule on the new application if the moratorium were in place.
