DON’T GET TOO EXCITED;- There’s said to be an accepted offer on this contemporary saltbox, though it hasn’t even gone to contract yet. But I wanted to show you an example of what’s available and selling quickly here in this sluggish market, and for how much.
This strikes me as a good deal for the Town of East Hampton. It’s 2 BR, 2 bath, on 1/2 acre, in a very quiet, wooded neighborhood of ’70s/’80s houses, many of them variations on the saltbox shape. It’s a mile from bay beaches, 4 miles from the ocean.
There’s not much to it, and in other parts of the country, 399K would be laughable for such a simple house. But I find its plainness appealing. Utterly simple shape, white bathrooms and kitchen, lots of light, large screened porch. Unobjectionable, certainly, which is more than can be said for many houses of that era.
