The previous owner was a member of the Amityville Historical society, so i think you're right with that guess. The house next door is also for sale but, for significantly more money and has been on the market a LONG time. The two houses on Ocean close to this one, that have sold recently have been hundreds of thousands of dollars less then the $850,000 requested for this one.
Unless they drop the price, i'd say into the $500's, this house will stay on the market a LONG time.
I was sort of expecting the price to drop over Labor Day weekend, but it's still at $850K. They still haven't added any interior shots to the listing page. What is the big mystery? I'm assuming all the furniture has been moved out and the walls painted. Why would they omit interior photos, so weird.
I know when the house first came on the market, there were articles stating there were numerous interested buyers. They seem to have disappeared, which makes me think their bids were too low.
I Googled that property nearby - the 120 Ocean Avenue property - and can't believe it's on the market for so much. Then again, it's 5000 square feet, so that's 1,400 square feet more than 108 Ocean. Plus a carriage house AND boat house. Built in 1929, not long after 108 (112), so same era. I'm assuming its on the same ley lines as well, if you are into that sort of thing.
