Christopher Dubs, an agent from Brown Harris Stevens, recently bought an East Hampton home built by 1930s East Hampton mayor Dr. Frederick Russell.

Dubs paid $1.275 million, according to the Long Island Real Estate Report.

The 2,500-square-foot house, located on Pantigo Road, had been on the market for six months as a short sale. The house has five bedrooms, two-half baths and sits on half an acre. It also has a heated gunite pool and an outdoor shower.

Listed with Victoria Van Vlaanderen of Town & Country Real Estate, the 1913 house is located in “The Hook Historic District” of East Hampton. It was designed and built in the Arts and Crafts style by Russell.

Perennial gardens and an old Magnolia tree surround the house. “The wood work had never been painted, so all its original integrity is intact,” says Vlaanderen.

Vlaanderen says Dubs -- who has a degree in architectural design, has worked in interior design and architecture and renovates homes in the Hamptons -- is the perfect owner for the property. “He truly appreciated the pure Arts and Crafts style and loved it as much as I did and the previous owners,” raves Vlaanderen.
