The recent record sale at auction of La Dune, an iconic oceanfront estate in the Hamptons, rocked the luxury world. Comprised of two remarkable homes designed by legendary architects Sanford White and Francois Cartroux, the 366 and 376 Gin Lane four-acre estate offers unparalleled beach access with approximately 400 feet of beachfront and breathtaking ocean views.
The property might seem familiar to Unique Homes readers. Once the most expensive listing in the Southampton area of Long Island, it was featured among the top 10 in our annual Ultimate Homes list of the most expensive in the U.S., first appearing, priced at over $100 million, in 2017. The recent auction fetched $88.48 million, making it the most valuable property ever auctioned live at Sotheby’s.
“The remarkable final sale price for ‘La Dune’ reflects its stunning design, exclusive address, and historic pedigree,” said Chad Roffers, founder and CEO of Sotheby’s Concierge Auctions.
“I am pleased to have partnered with Sotheby’s Concierge Auctions on yesterday’s sale of the iconic ‘La Dune’ residence,” stated Harald Grant. “This extraordinary oceanfront compound represents one of the finest offerings in the Hamptons; it is no surprise that this auction resulted in a record sale.” Along with Grant, Tim Davis of The Corcoran Group and Cody Vichinsky, president and founding partner of Bespoke Real Estate partnered on the sale.
