SOLD! A Meadow Lane house in Southampton recently sold for $21.6 million, according to the Long Island Real Estate Report. The seven-bedroom, 10.5-bath, 10,150-square-foot newly constructed, custom-built home is on 2.3 acres on the Atlantic Ocean. There are also views of Cooper Pond. The property includes a negative-edge gunite pool and spa, as well as three laundry facilities, a movie theater, a gym, and a steam and sauna room. Susan and Matthew Breitenbach of The Corcoran Group were the listing agents; Corcoran’s Gary DePersia represented the buyer, which is listed as the limited liability company Seacret. --  Valerie Kellogg

HOLES INCLUDED. It’s always tee time at Sy Cohen’s home. Nestled in the Broadhollow community of Brookville, his property boasts a 150-yard, par-3 golf hole that he and wife, Merry, installed on their 7.23 acres about six years ago.

“I practice once or twice a week,” says Cohen, whose handicap is 24. (Merry’s is 36.) “There’s a sand trap and a putting green with eight different holes.”

Formal gardens and an in-ground pool with pool house share the parcel.

The main house, an elegant brick Georgian-style home built in 1926 by banker-diplomat Winthrop W. Aldrich, is listed for $7.778 million and features 25 rooms, including a ballroom, banquet dining room and 12 fireplaces.

Other influential residents have made their home here, including Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt II, who served as president of Belmont Park and Pimlico racetracks. “It’s a little piece of paradise,” says Mollie Grossman of Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate, who is listing the property with Aileen Murstein at Coldwell Banker Residential. “All this privacy near so many wonderful parts of Long Island.” -- Virginia Dunleavy

HOME DISCO. An Old Brookville home that contains a $1 million nightclub where the living room used to be is back on the market. Now listed for $2.695 million, the 1970 farm ranch has been completely redone, down to LED lights on the exterior that change color. Inside, the club features a 24-foot underlit onyx bar, LED strobe lights, a fog machine, a DJ booth, intelligent lighting --  and a custom-built wrought-iron chandelier that doubles as a dance cage that comes down from the ceiling. The five-bedroom, three-bath, three-half-bath house had been on the market for almost $3 million. It’s re-listed with Jack Rosinsky of Shawn Elliott Luxury Homes & Estates. -- Valerie Kellogg
