Two years after former art dealer Bernard Goldberg put his 1900s beach house on the market for $40 million, he finally found a buyer.

The property’s price had recently dropped to $29.95 million, according to Curbed. The East Hampton “cottage,” as Sotheby’s describes it in the listing, is currently under contract, though the buyer and sale price are unknown.

The home sits on 1.25 acres, with 200 feet of direct access to the ocean. In 5,000 square feet, the home has six bedrooms and five bathrooms. There’s also a 40-foot by 20-foot pool in the backyard.

High hedges shield the property on Lily Pond Lane for maximum privacy.


The shingle style beach house still includes original features from when it was built at the turn of the 20th century.
