Real estate agents have sought a multimillion-dollar sale price for a modest mobile home in one of the country’s most desirable beach destinations.
The asking price for the 2,150-square-foot residence in Montauk, New York — about 120 miles east of New York City — is currently a record-breaking $4.4 million.
“This outstanding modular home has two bedrooms and two bathrooms,” reads the Zillow listing description for the home, which was built in 2015.
“Inside, discover a stunning open floor plan filled with natural light and ocean views.”
The home also features a wraparound deck, an outdoor shower, and a loft that can be used as a bedroom or additional living space.
This offer came after a similar property in the same Montauk Shores neighborhood sold for $3.75 million earlier this year, the New York Post reported.
Musician Jimmy Buffett, hedge fund manager Dan Loeb, and Vitaminwater co-founder Darius Bikoff have all dabbled in buying homes in the trailer park.
It is near Ditch Plains, a popular surfing destination for Hamptons residents and visitors alike.
The house has been on the market for 100 days.
The seller initially hoped for nearly $5 million, but lowered the asking price by 12 percent earlier in the month.
There are nearly 200 homes in the community of Montauk Shores.
Longtime Hamptons resident Ken Hilderbrandt, 85, told the New York Post he bought a trailer there in 1998 for just $96,500.
“The people who shop there are no longer like New York City firefighters who want to go surfing on the weekend,” said Dave Rutkowski, the owner of John’s Drive-In, which opened nearby in 1967.
“It’s people who have a lot of money for a second home and say, ‘I want to be right where the surf vacation is.’
“It’s crazy to think a trailer could ever sell for that much money.”
