Peek inside the pricey Hamptons homes fueling bidding wars

“People are taking advantage of the much stronger market,” says Corcoran’s Gary DePersia. “I’m seeing bidding wars and multiple offers at all price levels. And many properties that traded pre-COVID would trade for a higher price today.”

DePersia is presently advertising and marketing the final instance of this phenomenon: a $72 million property at 26 and 32 Windmill Lane in East Hampton.

More jaw-dropping nonetheless, the five-bedroom, 5,900-square-foot house and three-bedroom, 2,300-square-foot visitor home will seemingly be seen as a teardown to consumers prepared to pay this type of premium.

Over in Bridgehampton, the six-bedroom, nine-bathroom fashionable property at 144 Meadowlark Lane hit the market again in January 2019 asking $14.5 million. Today, it’s asking $18.9 million with Corcoran’s Susan Breitenbach — yet one more reflection of the Hamptons bull market. The 8,000-square-foot mansion options walnut and terrazzo flooring, teak and leather-wrapped stairs, three fireplaces, a marble steam room and a “green” design by architect Tommy Zung.
