(Hamptons,NY) — Here’s the thing. It’s an indisputable fact that luxury estates in the Hamptons are prohibitively expensive. Most of us—those who don’t have very deep pockets—can’t even begin to imagine what it would be like to live in an uber estate with a sunken Deco turf tennis court, an expansive theater room, an elevator and even a professional 2-lane bowling alley and entertainment lounge with full bar and billiards.
ONE OF THE LARGEST ESTATES IN SOUTHAMPTON
A bowling alley? Well, if you have 17 million tucked under your mattress, that home, which just got listed on Douglas Elliman, can be yours. Which brings us to our point. If you think that price tag is ridiculously expensive, how about an estate that just came on the market for $34.96 million? This 23,000 square-foot estate is being heralded as one of the largest and most expensive residences in the Hamptons that is currently on the market, and surpasses the 22,000 square foot estate known as La Dune, which has a hefty $145 million price tag. The newly listed country estate, affectionately known as the Summerhouse, outsizes La Dune by 1,000 square feet. Recently built and completed by Kean Development, the estate sits on four acres, has 9 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. In comparison, the La Dune estate features 22 bedrooms and 21 full bathrooms.
Summerhouse, which is on 6 Olde Town in the heart of Southhampton, has an exterior that’s very traditional, a style that many homes here also have, which is a classic New England shingle-style beach home. The manicured landscape includes the obligatory privet hedges that line the front property.
UNBELIEVABLE ESTATE AMENITIES
The amenities for this three-story estate will blow your mind. There’s a chef’s kitchen with industrial appliances, high ceilings intended to enhance the home, a ton of windows that allow for a lot of natural light, a lounge with a full bar and a fully-equipped gym. And if you thought a bowling alley was excessive, how about Summerhouse’s indoor basketball court, tennis court state-of-the-art movie theater, a 60′ x 30′ custom gunite swimming pool and rooftop putting green? Yep, this pristine estate is not only move-in ready, but also made for entertaining. It is also made for relaxation and features a spa with a sauna, a steam room and a massage room. As for the pool house, which is larger than many single-home properties in less expensive neighborhoods, it boasts a lounge, a kitchenette, 2 full baths and a changing room.
We’re watching if anyone will bite. Someone out there may just think $34.96 million is chump change and buy Summerhouse. You never know, you know.
