Will an auction accomplish what a previous listing didn’t for this Stern and Bucek-designed modern mansion in Southampton? The property had stuck to a $3.75 million asking price from September 2013 to June 2014 before calling a timeout. Its relisting by a new agent last week notes that when the auction kicks in later this month, the minimum starting bid will be . . .
$2.9 million (details are on the auction site). Bidding opens February 10 and ends March 24 for the 7,694-sq.-ft. home. It’s located on slightly more than a quarter of an acre, midblock between Shepherd Dr. and Hazard St., south of Bissonnet St. There’s a service alley at the back of the double lot. The open floor plan, with steel-framed, full-height windows, offers through-views of the fire and water features found in 3 courtyards:
The home, designed for multiple generations, has 5 bedrooms, 6 full bathrooms, 2 half baths, and a lap pool. Exterior finishes mix brick, first-growth cypress wood and zinc siding.
