Tight End Sells House

Vyto Kab, a onetime tight end for the New York Giants, as well as the Philadelphia Eagles and Detroit Lions, has reportedly sold his Southampton Village house.
After playing college football for Penn State University, Kab was included in the third round of the 1982 draft by the Eagles. He caught 36 passes during his brief career but none with the Giants, whom he played for in 1985.

His Southampton estate at 41 Herrick Road was originally listed for $13.75 million, for several years. The latest asking price, with Tim Davis of Corcoran, was for $10.95 million.
Built in 2016 after a teardown, the seven-bedroom house has the usual bells and whistles, including an elevator. The selling price was not disclosed. No word on whether Kab knelt down during the closing or stood tall with the rest of his legal team.

Sunset Views In Southold

An impressive spread on 1375 Ackerly Pond Lane in Southold is on the market.

Sunsets and forever vineyard views are the calling cards of a rustic four-bedroom, three-bath farmhouse. There are two barns, irrigated paddocks, two tack rooms, a 100-by-200-foot arena, and wash stalls. Expansion possible. There is a garage on the property and a legal apartment. The asking price is under $1.5 million. Kay Lawson of Douglas Elliman has the listing.

Take Me To The Church

A remodeled historic church on Madison Street in Sag Harbor is on the verge of being sold.

The odyssey of the Sag Harbor Methodist Church took another turn this week when it was reported the building has been sold — again. The 13,000-square-foot church has been converted to a residence, and work on the 48 Madison Street property has been ongoing for a couple years. The church was originally on High Street but was moved to its present location in 1835.

It was a little-used community room when Southampton Town Board member Dennis Suskind purchased it a decade ago. He stated he would renovate and live in it.

But politicians are known to, shall we say, change their minds, and Suskind sold it to designer Elizabeth Dow in 2013 for a reported $4 million. Once the head-to-toe overhaul began, prices as high as $23 million plus were bandied about. Lately, however, the price had reportedly dropped under $10 million again.

The name of the newest buyer, and the purchase price, has yet to be revealed, but industry sources said it indeed has been sold again.
