A single, 800-square-foot beachfront mobile home in the Hamptons just sold for $3.75 million. This extremely expensive trailer beat the area’s previous record for an extremely expensive trailer, which sold last year for $1.85 million. As the New York Post reported, the off-market sale for the two-bedroom, two-bathroom trailer came to $5,000 per square foot. For this price, amenities include a grill and an outdoor shower.
The trailer is part of Montauk Shores, a luxury community of mobile homes that now includes a number of billionaires. “The Ditch Plains area in general is very special,” the Douglas Elliman broker who represented the buyer told the Post, calling the spot “an oasis for surfers and beachgoers.” Yes, surfers and beachgoers like the co-founder of Vitaminwater, Darius Bikoff, and billionaire Dan Loeb of the hedge fund Third Point. Jimmy Buffet, sadly, lost a Ditch Plains trailer bidding war in 2005.
