The latest headlines from Curbed Hamptons, our outpost on the East End...
1) What craziness is this photo? Bridgehampton mega-mansion The Sandcastle. It rented last sumner for $30,357 per day, and it will be shattering that record this summer at $35,714 per day.
2) Corcoran's first quarter East End market report is out and sales are up (to 466 units in Q1, compared to 208 in the same period of 2009), as are prices. But inventory's up, too, maybe because sellers want to test the market as it starts to look better.
3) Want to buy a foreclosed 2007 Southampton House for $574,000? Before you say yes, think about how you'd feel living next door to the Southampton Gun Club. If you're an East Villager, the noise might be easier to take.
