BIG SALE. Rocker Billy Joel may not be “Movin’ Out” of Sagaponack just yet, but his neighbors are. A nearby oceanfront home has just sold for $24 million, according to the Long Island Real Estate Report.
The 2.4-acre spread includes a gunite pool with an infinity edge, and a two-bedroom guest cottage. The home has five bedrooms, 5 ½ bathrooms and two laundry rooms with multiple washers and dryers. The house came on the market in August 2010 for $26.75 million.
Records show that Kimberly and Scott Resnick sold the property to a limited liability company identified as SAG-GF LLC. John Healey of Town & Country Real Estate in Bridgehampton was the listing agent.
Joel’s home is only steps away. It is currently on the market for $16.75 million, down from the original asking price of $22.5 million. -- Cathy Mahon
FOR TENNIS FANS. If you love tennis — really, really love tennis — then this Lattingtown spread may be for you. The eight-bedroom, eight-bath, three half-bath house, which is on the market for $6.349 million, has two tennis courts — one outside and one inside. Better yet for fans of the game, you can watch the action on the court inside from various rooms in the house, says listing agent Jennifer Kelter of Piping Rock Associates.
“You can eat dinner and watch a match at the same time,” she says. The court is original to the 1924 brick Georgian Colonial, once part of the Dodge Sloane estate, but the sellers have redone it, she says. “People love to play on it.” The 4.06-acre property also boasts a pool and pool house and a three-car garage with a family room on the second floor. -- Valerie Kellogg
GAME ROOM. No need to line up your quarters at this 15,000-square-foot Old Westbury manse: You can play video games to your heart’s content in the arcade, where there are about 20 games -- including Pacman, Ms. Pacman and Centipede and six pinball machines. And the old-school consoles stay with the house.
The arcade is right outside the home’s own 12-seat movie theater, which is surrounded by marquee signs, popcorn and candy stations, an old-fashioned soda fountain and stools, and cinema-inspired Edward Fields carpet.
Other amenities at the house — which is listed for $5.495 million — include a rubberized DecoTurf tennis court, a gunite pool and a full gym. “This home will leave the most jaded person speechless,” says listing agent Kenneth Deutsch of Ken Deutsch Real Estate. -- Cathy Mahon
