Though the high end of the Hamptons real estate market is said to have gone cold, a number of sales recorded recently buck the trend.

While none enters 10-digit territory, the sales prices are nothing to sneeze at: The top of the list is an $8.25 million sale in North Sea. Polizzotto Family Trust sold 1763 Noyac Road to a buyer whose identity is shielded by a limited liability company, according to The Real Estate Report Inc.

It is unclear how 1763 Noyac Road fetched such a high price—the listing asked for half that amount, $4.1 million, for a 3.4-acre lot fronting Great Peconic Bay, with a three-bedroom, 2.5-bath home.

If the price doubled in a bidding war, that would be quite astonishing—so it’s best to assume less exciting reasons explain the final sales price.

However, the home does boast water views from both the living and dining areas and one of the downstairs guest bathrooms, a “large retro-style gourmet kitchen,” and a wraparound porch. On the grounds is a two-car garage, heated gunite pool and steps down to the bay.

Catherine Kennedy has taken 22 Davids Lane in East Hampton Village off the hands of Andrew Richardson for $6.3 million. Located south of the highway, the home, with 5,500 square feet of living space, has the five bedrooms, two full bathrooms and two half-baths.

The large eat-in kitchen has an open dining area, fireplace, Viking appliances, and an adjacent dining patio with two barbecues. The living room and separate den both have French doors to the patio. The first-floor junior en-suite bedroom has a porch.

On the second floor, find two en-suite guest rooms plus the large master bedroom has a cathedral ceiling, a fireplace, a sitting area, a private porch and a soaking tub. And the lower level has a media room, a gym, an en-suite bedroom with steam shower, a laundry room and a powder room.

On the grounds, an extensive stone patio has a gas fireplace, the saltwater gunite pool is accompanied by a pool house with powder room and an outdoor shower, and there’s a two-car garage.

For $6.17 million, Regina and Peter Kanter are the new owners of 15 Green Tree Court in Amagansett, which was represented by Enzo Morabito of Douglas Elliman. The 6,500-square-foot home by Bridgehampton architect Kevin O’Sullivan on 2.1 acres is surrounded by the 189-acre Silver Beach Preserve.

The open floor plan and floor-to-ceiling Fleetwood glass sliding doors with access to the courtyard encourage indoor-outdoor living. The courtyard offers a stainless grilling station, a gas pizza oven and a fireplace, and the property also boasts a 58-foot infinity edge gunite pool with a 14-foot waterfall and in-water lounge.

Back indoors, the first floor features a foyer, a formal living room, a dining room, a library, and two en-suite bedrooms with Ipe wood terraces. The open kitchen with 14-foot ceilings has custom white lacquer cabinets, a Basaltina Stone center island, luxury stainless steel appliances, and access to the butler’s kitchen with dumbwaiter. The master wing has a dressing room, a private office, and a Carrara marble bath with radiant heated floors, an infinity-edge soaking tub, and a massive glass shower.

The finished lower level offers a large open common room/gallery, a custom glass enclosed wine cellar, a laundry/storage room, radiant heated floors, a yoga room, access to the three-car garage, and a gym with a patio and full spa bath with a sauna and steam room.

Not enough for you? Additional amenities include a backup generator, Crestron home automation, multiple fireplaces, floor finishes comprising of 7-inch Burmese teak flooring and Durango Travertine marble, Dornbracht fixtures, and custom cabinetry.

The last recently recorded sale to break the $5 million barrier is 1348 Deerfield Road in Water Mill, which Victoria and Alfred Shtainer sold to an LLC for $5.5 million. The asking price had been $6 million.

Represented by Sotheby’s International Realty’s Frank Bodenchak, the 6-acre estate atop a hill and on a cul-de-sac has both a pool and an ideally positioned north-south tennis court. The front gate and private drive lead to a formal courtyard. The residence itself is newly built and 10,000 square feet.

Finishes of Thassos, slab Calacatta, light gray oak floors and modern millwork are found throughout. The two-story foyer leads into a great room with Nano Doors that open to the backyard. The chef’s kitchen, breakfast room, great room and living room all open to each other and to the outside. The first floor also features a junior master. Upstairs, a 1.5-story master suite has an office and a balcony centered on the yard. There are four additional upstairs en-suite bedrooms. And the finished lower level offers a family room, a theater, a gym with sauna, and two to three additional bedrooms.

Outdoor living amenities include covered and uncovered patios, the aforementioned pool and tennis, a hot tub, a large pool house with a kitchen, and Marders-designed mature landscaping.
