This Hamptons property is one fisherman’s catch of a lifetime.
The view from the porch is not spectacular.
An Amagansett South site that’s home to a rinky-dink two-bedroom trailer is on the market for $1.1 million. That’ll be a whale of a profit for owner Richard Lester, who told The Post he paid just $300 for the property in 1956 and added the $15,000 wood-paneled trailer a few years later.
“I had to work my ass off to get that,” said Lester, 79.
Lester still lives with his wife Tess in his modest 700-square-foot castle, which sits on 0.36 acres of land in the exclusive — and expensive — enclave, just a mile away from ritzy Indian Wells Beach.
A nearby home recently sold for $4 million, and neighbors include Jerry Seinfeld and Paul McCartney.
The property is surrounded by the rich and famous.
Lester, who still makes his living from the sea, said he never dreamed he’d land the big one — on land.
“Not in God’s world,” he said. “I think it’s ridiculous!”
Realtors said the price is all about the land and not the trailer, which looks like it could be straight out of “Deliverance.”
All potential buyers are builders, who plan to tear down the trailer and build a Hamptons dream home, Lord said.
“No one, I imagine, would build less than a three-bedroom, three-bathroom house,” said Lord.
You could easily describe the $1.1 million trailer as cozy. And a shed on the property will likely be turned into a pool house.
But the real-estate listing suggests homeowners could still live in the trailer while building their future mansion.
“Use as is now, while you plan for your 4,000 square foot new house with 20 foot x 50 foot swimming pool,” it says.
“We had one buyer that was a husband and wife. The husband suggested it and the wife was not keen on the idea,” said Lord.
