Hamptons mansion from Seinfeld’s ‘shrinkage’ episode sells for $5.7M

January 18, 2018

6sqft reported last year that the Amagansett home at 45 Whalers Lane, featured in Seinfeld’s unforgettable “ugly baby” episode—also known as “The Hamptons!”—was for sale, asking $8.75 million. Now, according to Curbed, the 4,000- square-foot Hamptons estate with sweeping oceanfront views that helped introduce the term “shrinkage” into modern day vernacular has just sold for a somehow-appropriate $5.725 million–about $3 million less than its original ask.

As for the famous “Seinfeld” episode, if you don’t remember it, the clip above should refresh your memory. The home, built in 1930, also appeared in the 1998 film “Deep Impact.” It also boasts a three-level bunker that was used in World War II as a Coast Guard lookout to watch for land or sea attacks.

The mansion boasts four bedrooms and four bathrooms and is “nestled atop the dunes with ocean views from practically every room.” A recent renovation has also completely transformed in the interior from cozy-eclectic to an open-plan home that’s downright sleek and chic.

Other highlights include a chef’s kitchen with an eight-burner Wolff stove, double Miele dishwashers and an oversized subzero refrigerator. There are also multiple entertaining areas, two fireplaces, a two-car attached garage, and of course, that pool.
