Not a dollar below $20 million, but not going above $30 million either. This is the price range for the most expensive Hamptons homes sold in 2012.
Let’s take a closer look at the mansions that are in the top 3 positions:
Sold for: $28.5 million
Sold on: 02/17/2012
The story: After several years of being on and off the market, this 12,636 sqft oceanfront home, formerly owned by billionaire Marc Rowan, found a buyer in Carlos Alejandro Pérez Dávila, a managing director of investment advisory firm Quadrant Capital Advisors, The Real Deal informs us.
When he first bought the house in 2005, Rowan put down a bit more than half the price it sold for this year–$16 million. Meanwhile, the property’s charm, created in part by the spectacular oceanfront views and the floating staircase, has certainly increased in value.
Sold for: $28 million
Sold on: 03/23/2012
The story: Although both the buyer’s and the seller’s names remain undisclosed, what is known about the property is that it had been bought for $9.85 million in 2004 and then was listed in 2011 at a much higher price–a hefty $38 million. The 7-bedroom home is part of a 3.5-acre estate and has had serious renovations, the above-cited article in The Real Deal reveals.
Sold for: $27.25 million
Sold on: 04/03/2012
The story: The third most expensive home sold in the Hamptons went on and off the market in just 3 weeks. This is another oceanfront property that saw its value double in approximately 5 years. The former owners bought the estate in 2005 for $13.5 million and then sold it for a bit more than $27 million to an anonymous LLC.
