The Hamptons have long been a summer playground for the rich and famous, with real estate prices reflecting just how badly folks want to be part of the scene. But this latest home to hit market had us scratching (and shaking) our heads over its crazy asking price. Offering one bedroom and one bathroom within a 48-year-old, 700-square-foot trailer, this modest mobile abode is looking to make a $1.2 million sale. No, this is not an April Fools joke.
The listing, which appropriately leads with “You are not dreaming,” shows some interior shots of the very lived-in digs, located on a private flag lot at 32 Cross Highway in Amagansett South.
The home’s price is most definitely fed by the site’s location near Indian Wells Beach. A neighboring home about a mile away recently sold for $4 million, while Jerry Seinfeld’s estate also sits just a quarter of a mile from the property.
Though modest by most standards, the trailer does come with just over a third of an acre, meaning if you’re willing to put in the effort, you could easily erect your dream home on this plot.
“Everything’s about the land here,” co-listing agent Ray Lord of Douglas Elliman Real Estate told Newsday. “The asking price is all because of the location.”
