A dome-shaped home located on the Reeves Bay in Flanders, New York has hit the market at an asking price of $729,000. While the 1,762-square-foot pad keeps things compact inside, it sits on nearly an acre of land and includes incredible waterfront views. As Curbed Hamptons reported, the Southampton dome at 48 Huntington Lane first sold in 2005 for $728,500 and returned to the market this July for $899,000. In addition to the artistic design, the three-bedroom, two-bathroom home features docking rights, a garage and air conditioning.

We can’t imagine he’ll be having any public outbursts over the $7 million profit he just made on his Southampton estate. The Observer reports that confrontational tennis legend John McEnroe, along with his wife, musician Patty Smyth, has sold his beach-front house for $11.25 million, 18 years after buying it for $4.2 million. Not surprisingly, the home on Squabble Lane (how’s that for ironic?) has a full-size Har-Tru tennis court and a gym, as well as a heated pool, private beach access, and the 8,000-square-foot mansion.
Back in July 6sqft reported that “Today Show” host Matt Lauer had put his Southampton beach cottage at 67 Scotts Landing Road on the market for $4 million; the listing was one of several real estate moves the seasoned TV journo has recently made, including the purchase of Richard Gere’s Hamptons estate for $36 million at around the same time. Now Variety reports that the diminutive seaside home has sold for $3.5 million–less than the ask but a nice bump from the home’s $2.19 million 2009 purchase price. In addition to the aforementioned 6.3 acre gated North Haven estate, Lauer and his wife Annette also currently own Brightside Farms, a 40-acre tract of land in Water Mill on which they have built a world-class equestrian facility and a 25-acre estate in the Water Mill area that includes an 8,000-square-foot 6-bedroom mansion decorated by Muriel Brandolini; the latter is also currently on the market for $17 million.
Yes, this Southampton Village home is palatial, but “castle” is not being used here as just an adjective; the historic home is actually titled “the Castle.” And it’s a fair moniker, as the red-brick residence is covered in romantic ivy, features a dreamy turret and sits on 43 acres. Famed Manhattan interior designer William Sofield of Studio Sofield purchased the estate in 1999 for $830,000 and spent over a decade restoring its original Arts and Crafts style. He has now listed the house, which was built in 1911 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, for $4.3 million.
You might not think of a starkly modern home as calming or tranquil, but then you’ve probably never seen the Residence in Southampton by Sawyer|Berson architects. Built for designer Kelly Behun and her family, the home is characterized by its dramatic overhangs, large expanses of glass, and flowing, open floor plan. Part of a series of pavilions, the main house, pool, pool house, and guest wing are all oriented south to take advantage of the stunning beach views.
The seven-bedroom home boasts a screening room, gym, and an an impressive collection of art. Perhaps the most interesting element of the residence is the infinity pool, which is visible from the gym and yard.
