1) North Haven: The home of Susan Dusenberry, wife of late advertising legend Phil Dusenberry, hit the market earlier this week for $18 million. The Peter Cook-designed, 5BR, 6.5BA house is 6,800 square feet. It sits on 11 acres of land in two combined lots. And, bargain hunters, the 5-acre-ish waterfront lot is available on its own for $7 million.
2) Springs: The Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center is on the verge of purchasing the land next door, which belongs to the children of one Dr. Harry Potter. When Potter's kids expressed a wish to build a 5,000-square-foot spec house on the land, the museum was worried that it would kill Jackson Pollock's view. They plan to fund the purchase of the land with donations, and they're only $25,000 shy of the $1.2 million asking price, should you be looking for holiday charitable giving ideas.
3) Montauk: Up the street from Madoff's just-sold pad, Rolling Stone founder Jann Wenner and his partner Matt Nye have closed on a 6,300-square-foot home. The final sales price? $11.9 million, a $3 million PriceChop from the initial ask. The seller, developer George Filopoulos, is relocating across the street.
