HOME IN THE DUNES. Fashion designer and owner of the Foravi boutiques in Manhattan, Devora Avikzer, has just reduced the price of her Amagansett beach house in the Dunes from $2.59 million to $2.45 million. Built in 1980, the 2,200-square-foot Saltbox-style home sits on half an acre and has four bedrooms and two bathrooms and comes with a fireplace, a sauna, a pool house and an outdoor shower. “I have completely redesigned the home both inside and out, creating a modern yet warm and comfortable space with minimum upkeep. It is a true beach house,” says Avikzer. The listing is with Lili Elsis of Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate.
DAIRYMAN'S HOUSE. It may be priced under $1 million, but a newly listed property in Glen Cove comes with some rich Gold Coast history. It is part of what remains of banker J.P. Morgan Jr.’s former 257-acre estate, mostly torn down in the 1980s — a 1911 brick dairyman’s home and an octagonally shaped milking house, both designed by architect Christopher LaFarge, whose firm, Heins & LaFarge, was responsible for part of the design of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine and the Astor Court buildings at the Bronx Zoo.
The dairyman’s house is now a three-bedroom home; the milking house is now a one-bedroom cottage. The half-acre property includes three bays of a six-bay garage shared by neighbors as well as a portion of a walled garden. The property is listed for $749,000 with Paul Mateyunas of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty.
