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.
45 Whalers Lane
A (pricey) piece of pop culture memorabilia is up for grabs, reports the NY Post. The Hamptons mansion featured in Seinfeld’s unforgettable “ugly baby” episode—also known as “The Hamptons!”—has just hit the market for $8.75 million. While the estate situated at 45 Whalers Lane in Amagansett has a lot to tout—including 4,000 square feet of space and sweeping oceanfront views—what really makes the house special is the fact it is where the term “shrinkage” was introduced into modern day vernacular.
