We may not give enough real estate love to the west side of the Shinnecock Canal, mostly because we often do what Deep Throat advised and follow the money. However, a couple of recent transactions tell us it’s time to pay a little more attention.
Both are in the Village of Quogue. The sale with the highest price is 70 Quogue Street. For $4,200,000, the new owners, Gayle and Jeffrey Klein, will enjoy a post-modern house on 1 acre with 6 bedrooms and 8.5 baths, eat-in kitchen, formal dining room, a home office, a mahogany deck, and a covered porch. Outside, a limestone patio overlooks an in-ground pool. And all around is the bucolic village, with the Atlantic Ocean nearby.
The limited liability company 15 Ogden Lane is the new owner of a residence that remarkably is at that very same address (which probably saved a lot of paperwork). The 3,000-square-foot house is on 1.2 acres. Especially fetching is that there is an in-ground waterfront pool and a private boat dock. This gem sold for $3,255,000.
Also west of the canal, in Hampton Bays, a seven-figure sale reported last week was 10 Barrett Drive. Close to 3,000 square feet, this 5-bedroom, 4-bath home was purchased by NJL Ventures LLC for $1,500,000. And it’s not south of the highway but in the northern section of the hamlet, near Red Creek Park and close to Peconic Bay.
