HISTORIC HOUSE SOLD. Old Westbury’s historically significant A. Conger Goodyear House has sold, according to the Long Island Real Estate Report. Public records show that the 5.5-acre National Register of Historic Places site fetched $3.4 million. It was originally listed for $4.9 million, then taken off the market and relisted in March with Emma Iacovone of Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate for a reduced asking price of $4.599 million. The glass home was built in 1939 for Goodyear, the founder and first president of the Museum of Modern Art. It was designed by one of the museum’s architects, modernist Edward Durrell Stone, whose work includes Radio City Music Hall and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Designer Eric Cohler renovated the five-bedroom, five-bath, one-half-bath home, which narrowly escaped demolition. When Cohler purchased it, no one had lived there for two decades. “I was merely the steward who brought the property back to life,” he says. -- Valerie Kellogg

TWO'S COMPANY. The only thing better than owning an oceanfront property on ritzy Gin Lane in Southampton is owning two properties there. According to the Long Island Real Estate Report, one property recently sold to a limited liability company for $14.5 million. Public records trace the company back to a hedge funder and real estate investor who purchased the 1.07-acre estate next door for $18.3 million in 2006. Peter Hallock, senior vice president of The Corcoran Group, was the listing agent on the most recent sale of the 2.36-acre property, which includes a 2,700-square-foot carriage house. -- Laura Mann
