The home at 230 & 234 Old Montauk Highway, built in 2006 and designed by architect James Biber, was bought by Hirtenstein for $13 million in early 2013. The property, which hit the market last year at $21 million, went to contract in December. It includes a three-level, 5,500-square-foot main house is hurricane-proof despite being made from steel-framed glass, according to Mansion Global. It includes a gourmet kitchen, roof deck and wraparound terraces. A separate 2,400-square-foot glass guest house has two bedrooms, one bathroom and an eat-in kitchen. The property made headlines in 2017 when Tinder rented the home at $135,000 a month and held several parties and events there. Mansion Global noted that Robert Danker, president of New York City-based Prime Manhattan Residential, brought in the buyer. The Corcoran Group’s Gary DePersia had the listing for Hirtenstein, who has also bought and sold luxury properties in Manhattan. [Mansion Global]
