GLASS HOUSE: A multi-sectional triangular Cove Neck home (pictured) on property once owned by the Roosevelt family came on the market this week for $6.5 million. The glass house is on Cooper's Bluff, where President Theodore Roosevelt practiced for his charge up San Juan Hill. The property is next door to Billy Joel's former home, which was featured on the cover of his 1980 "Glass Houses" album. It is listed with Dell Rubin of Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate. In 2008, the asking price was $11 million.
RECORD SETTER: It went on the market two years ago for $20 million, and now The “Point” in Westhampton has finally been scooped up for $13 million. Located on Moriches Bay with views of the ocean, the 2.25-acre compound includes a 12,000-square-foot custom designed Nantucket-style main house and a 3,000-square-foot guest cottage. Listing agent Enzo Moribito of Prudential says it was the most expensive private residence ever sold in Westhampton.
BACK ON: Also with Morabito and Prudential's Aimee Fitzpatrick Martin is Belle Meade, the Quogue estate that once belonged to Eileen Ford, who founded Ford Models, Inc. On the market for $6.95 million, the 1906 Greek Revival mansion is said to have been one of the last houses designed by architect Stanford White. The current owners first put it on the market in 2007 for $10.5 million.
