Real Estate Quiz
Summer is coming, and perhaps you are thinking of buying a second home. Delivered with today's New York Times is a 132-page glossy magazine from Allan Schneider Associates with properties for sale or rent in the Hamptons, Shelter Island, and the North Fork of Long Island. The prices range from $400,000 to the tens of millions, but the most exciting properties are the ones that only provide "price upon request."
I thought it might be fun to take a guess at the prices for three of the properties in the Allan Schneider booklet:
- Three Ponds Farm, which includes an 18-hole golf course and 14 gardens
- "Paradise Found," the listing for a English county manor house (with three-bedroom guest house) in Sagaponack
- Longview, a majestic Gin Lane Georgian estate with staff quarters and a screening room
Take a look and take a guess in the comments. I'll contact the brokers and provide an update with the actual prices.
UPDATE: Answers below the fold.
Three Ponds Farm: $75 million
"Paradise Found": $14.995 million
Longview: $35 million

Obviously I have been away from Long Island and lived in Northern California and Tampa Bay areas for WAY too long. And I thought I was overestimating the prices! I guess that just goes to show the EXTREME inflation in real estate prices. Me, personally, if the golf estate were an equestrian estate ...
