TWO oceanfront houses! TWO pools! ONE tennis court! Four acres! Southampton, NY. $94,000,000

November 12, 2019

Looking at this I immediately wondered, WHO OWNS THIS??!! It is owned by Louise Blouin. She is considered the “Great Gatsby of the art world.” Apparently she throws lavish parties at her estate. She is an art magazine publisher and art collector. You can rent this home for $1,000,000 a month. 🙂 One home was built in 1897. The other is her guest house and it was built in 2002. The home is located on almost four acres in Southampton, New York. Twenty-one bedrooms, twenty-one bathrooms, and 22,000 square feet. $94,000,000

From the Zillow listing:

 

Regarded by many as the finest oceanfront in all of the Hamptons, this iconic estate with links to architect Stanford White offers two extraordinary residences on almost four acres, with over 400 ft. of bulkhead beach front, gorgeous hedged lawns, two custom Gunite pools, and sunken all-weather tennis on Gin Lane. Security gates and hedging open to a wide gravel drive, with the main four-story residence rising majestically from its front parking court. Constructed in the early 1900s, the classic shingle-sided presides over rosa rugosa dunes that slope down to the wide sandy beach. The gathering rooms across the second level open across a series of decks and patios that all take in ocean breezes, and from which one can watch the ceaseless waves. The second, wholly separate residence, was built to reflect the design and proportions of the main house. Both homes are designed similarly, from dark polished wood floors, to white interiors with detailed moldings (original in the main house), bead boards, French doors, transom windows, and coffered ceilings. Ample parking, and separate staff areas.
