Going Once, Going Twice...


According to Braden Keil, NYPost:

Raising the Eyre
The last remaining example of the famed architect Wilson Eyre's works on Long Island is going on the auction block. Eyre, the founder of House & Garden magazine, designed and built the Arts and Crafts-style mansion in Quiogue in 1904 for manufacturer Theodore Conklin (whose great-grandson Ted Conklin owns the famed American Hotel in Sag Harbor).
Sitting on 7 bayfront acres, the 15-room home, at more than 10,000 square feet, includes seven bedrooms, five full baths and two half-baths, a media room, a wine cellar/tasting room, a billiards room, a gym, a chef's kitchen and staff quarters with a separate entrance. The house, renovated and updated since the present owners, lawyers Lynn Krominga and Amnon Shiboleth, bought it in two 3 1/2-acre parcels in 2000 for a total of $4 million, features original woodwork, Tiffany lighting, stone fireplaces and century-old rhododendrons.
The auction is not absolute, which means the owners have imposed a minimum price. All sealed bids, which require a $250,000 certified or cashier's check, are due at the Sheldon Good & Co. office in Manhattan by 4 p.m. on July 13. The last available viewing of the property is Saturday. According to the rules, prospective buyers have to schedule at least two days in advance - which is today.
