Southampton Village and its outskirts have seen a number of significant sales in the past few weeks, pricewise, and some were bought or sold by folks with high profiles, and/or designed by architects with high profiles.

Designed by Grosvenor Atterbury, 199 Coopers Neck Lane in the village sold for $11.6 million from Michael Bruno LLC to 199 Coopers Lane LLC, according to The Real Estate Report Inc.

Michael Bruno, the founder of 1stdibs, a furniture, jewelry, fashion and art shopping website, and his partner, Alexander Jakowec, bought the property back in the heady days of 2015 for $15 million. So, yes, it was sold at a loss of $3.4 million. And Mr. Bruno hadn’t even tried to get all his money back: It was listed earlier this year for $12.95 million.

On 3 acres, the 14,000-square-foot residence has 11 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms. The oldest parts were built in 1910. The south facing parcel is just three doors down from the ocean, and the south and north sides of the house have three-story walls of glass. The wood shingle roof is new and the interior has been prepped as a blank canvas, according to the Corcoran listing, which also states that an architectural/design plan has been commissioned “to create a thoughtful layout for the Hamptons lifestyle of today.”

Amenities include a “newly imagined” swimming pool and pool house and a sunken tennis court.

Right behind is 237 Gin Lane, which Gregory Wright sold to 237 Gin Lane LLC for $10.35 million. The property had been listed in 2016 for $21 million and in 2017 was reduced to $17 million.

On approximately 2 acres, the 9,000-square-foot residence built in 2002 has 11 bedrooms, 11 full bathrooms and two half-baths, plus a staff wing.

It has a large formal living room with a fireplace, a paneled library also with a fireplace, a sunroom, a formal dining room and an oversized kitchen/family room. These gathering areas all access the gardens, covered dining porch, patio and pool. There is also a tennis court, and it even has a “secret garden” with a fountain.

Carole Gersten has sold 295 Wickapogue Road to Nonsuch Holding LLC for $7.5 million. It had been listed for $8.25 million, also with Ms. Petrillo.

Douglas Elliman power broker Michaela Keszler appears to have downsized—but she’s staying in the village.

Ms. Keszler recently sold 104 Foster Crossing for $12.75 million to Steven J. Boyd and then purchased an apartment at 155 Hill Street for $3.5 million from Barchi Realty LLC.
