2015 closed out the year with a solid performance on the high end. But, 2014 remains THE BEST YEAR for high-end real estate sales — shattering all prior ceilings with Barry Rosenstein’s purchase of Andrew Gordon’s estate from his partner, Chris Browne at $147M. The combination of 62 Further Lane, East Hampton at a total price of $97M plus 2 contiguous lots totaling $50M yields the $147M dollar total. That record sale unseated the prior high water mark set in 2007 when Ron Baron bought the deMenil Carpenter property also on Further Lane in East Hampton at $103M.
So while the 2015 top slots don’t come close to those record sales, the 10th spot was held at a respective $23M for 377 Jobs Lane in Bridgehampton.
In keeping with past Top 10 Most Expensive Sales reported by TOWN & COUNTRY, 9 of the 10 sales were waterfront with 7 of the 9 being oceanfront. The hamlet count was fairly consistent with Southampton logging in the most at 4, Bridgehampton with 2, East Hampton with 2, and Montauk with 1.
East Hampton once again takes the crown with 226 Further Lane at $57.3 M.
