Living Large: Take A Tour Inside A $10.5 Million East Hampton Home

NEW YORK (CBS 2) — CBS 2’s Emily Smith got a tour of 52 Middle Lane — one of the most coveted addresses in the Hamptons.

From the gate to the fountain to the front door, Smith got a look at what it means to be Living Large East Hampton style.

The mansion features 12 bedrooms, 16 bathrooms and everything in between. The estate hit the market at $10.5 million.

Upon walking into the front door, the large formal dining room — with seating for 24 people — stands out.

    The reason the working poor and all other disadvantaged groups continue to lose ground is because we remain deafeningly silent. CBS’s inbox should be flooded with comments form outraged citizens and it is not. We know this is insensitivity of the highest order, yet we say nothing. I know that CBS might not think that my opinion matters but it only takes a spark to start a fire. I am certain that there are many human interest stories that CBS could bombard us with on a daily basis but their execs would like us to see how they live. RUB IT IN OUR NOSES, WHY DON’T YOU?

    This house at 52 Middle Lane is Haunted. Barton Kaplan was found floating on the bottom of the pool by me Sam Wagner in 2002. If you go to Google and Google in Barton Kaplan and Sam Wagner 52 Middle Lane you will see the stories about the House being Haunted. In 2005 a family rented the house for $550,000. for the summer and half way through the season wanted their money back. They said doors slammed in the middle of the night , lights went on at will….and the pool lights and fountains would go on after 2am on weekends…by themselves. Robert Kaplan …Barton’s Father had the house listed in 2004 for 19.5 million with Corcoran. Now the same house is listed for 10,5 million by Sotherbeys. Ghosts…do make a difference.

    Corporate greed is destroying America. In addition to the upper middle class, lower middle class, working poor, you now have the “slave class” People with virtually no material assets, they can’t own a car or pay for their children’s education, barely afford their monthly rent, and yet they work at companies where the CEO is a multii-millionaire working on becoming a billionaire. The CEO class of indivduals has forgotten the basic rule of kindergarten; SHARE!!!!!!!
    And basically what can individuals do who find themselves in the slave class? Don’t vote Republican, because their political party is now based on giving tax breaks to hedge-fund managers to receive donations to finance their re-election campaigns, so it becomes a cycle of greed that poor voter suffers for this.

      I totally agree with you and this is very well said. Isn’t it disheartening that there are only 5 people who share our outrage? I really believe that is the shame and why corporate giants such as CBS can make decisions such as this with impunity.

    The overly rich and famous are the ones living large and are largely unaffected by the recession, where you do you think all these “record-breaking” profits from the corporations go to?

    …And its the reason why most of us are still without work… *sigh*

  5. Lesa Richardson says:

    Why at a time of record evictions and homelessness is ch. 2 wasting so much time featuring the most outrageous examples of fortune and self-indulgence with these mansions to an audience that most likely consists of a majority of homeless familes and individuals who were lucky if they had one meal that day?
    Are they the new realtor to the overly rich and famous?
    How about stories that are relevant to a audience that is hungry to find a way to exist maybe even live through one of the hardest times of this century after the great depression?
