With scant interest from would-be buyers, East Hampton’s Bioscleave House has cut its price again, to $1.29 million, the New York Post reported. The home, which supposedly prolongs the lives of its inhabitants, is made up of two connected buildings spanning 3,400 square feet. It first came on the market in 2011 for $4 million, re-listed last July for $2.49 million and had its price cut again to $1.49 millionback in January. Built in 2008 and designed by the late avant-garde architect Madeline Gins and her artist husband Arakawa, the brightly colored home’s uneven terrain forces those inside to “move through life differently,” according to 2016 story from the Awl. But the Post noted that’s the problem. “It’s only going to be attractive to a certain segment of the buying population who likes eccentric… idiosyncratic houses,” one anonymous Hamptons broker told the paper. On top of that, scientists have said that the home’s longevity claims are bogus. “From a scientific point of view, there’s no basis in what they’re saying,” Dr. Ted Strange told the Post. Jose DosSantos of Brown Harris Stevens has the listing. [New York Post]
