I showed this beautiful house in Amagansett, a new construction listed at $8.5 million.  After the showing, I’m getting in my car when I look up and I see a light on somewhere upstairs. So I go back in the house. It’s all dark. I went upstairs and opened one of the walk-in closets. There’s no light on in there. I push the clothes away so I can see what’s going on. There is a 3-by-3-foot cutout in the wall behind the closet, like a little door to a crawl space. The light was coming through it.
