The plot where wealthy attorney Albert Barnes Boardman once erected his House of a Thousand Flowers has been picked up for $11.5 million. When Boardman bought 10 acres in Southampton in 1910, he set about building a four-story replica of the Villa Medici in Rome, dubbing his own creation Villa Mille Fiore or House of a Thousand Flowers. Restaurateur Jan Mitchell bought the property in 1960 and replaced the lavish mansion with a 6,000-square-foot home for him and his family. Mitchell’s family split the property into two parcels, selling off 5.6 acres several years ago for $13.7 million. The remaining land just sold to 180 Great Plains Road LLC for $3.5 million less than the $15 million it was listed for in 2016. Susan Breitenbach of the Corcoran Group was the agent on the listing. [27east]
