Last listed for $2.2 million, 7 Powell Avenue in Southampton, the former office space of Billy Joel
, has sold.
The former potato barn, grain barn and weigh station was built in 1884.
"The building is drenched in historic details and period touches, including intricate hand-laid brickwork, arched brick doorways, hand-hewn pine floors and beams and a working antique freight elevator," Brenda Giufurta of Douglas Elliman
, who the property was listed with, said. "This is truly a trophy building."
Sited on .21 acres, the mixed-use building is zoned for retail, light industry and office - with The Piano Man utilizing it for the latter. This marks only the third time that the space has been listed in the past 100 years.
The three-floor period building offers more than 8,000 square feet. Its previous owner had owned the space for nearly 50 years.
