Fox News host Bill O'Reilly plunked down almost $8 million for this little seaside bungalow on a bluff overlooking the ocean.
The quint little cottage was built in the 40's and has beautiful craftsmanship, or should we say it did.
Shortly after buying, O'Reilly called in the bulldozers and knocked the cottage down.
So much for the "old world craftsmanship” and “interiors brimming with authenticity," as broker Theresa Eurell wrote in her listing for the spread, originally on the market for $8.5 million.
Eurell said she was “sad to see the structures come down.”
"As a Montauk native, (I have) always admired the Abbe property, along with many other locals," she said in a statement.
O'Reilly will have plenty of company out on the East End peninsula, though not many friends. Neighbors include such liberal lions as Paul Simon, Julian Schnabel and Jann Wenner.
We're doubting they will be invited over for dinner.
