A spectacular, freshly-minted ocean-front estate on the Hampton's Billionaire’s Row a short helicopter ride from New York City, has been rented for the summer season for a record $1.5M, or around $17,500 a day.
According to the Robb Report, that’s the highest reported summer rental price in the history of the Hamptons.
What’s the appeal? This sleek, ultra-modern, 11,000-square-foot mansion with 9 bedrooms and 12 baths, sits on 3 prime acres of Southampton’s Meadow Lane.
The newly-finished home was designed by McDonough & Conroy Architects and project architect Mehran, with interiors by Steven LaFonte Design. Its stark, slightly boxy exterior features floor-to-ceiling walls of glass to make the most of the breathtaking views of Southampton’s sandy beach and the crashing Atlantic.
According to listing agent at Saunders & Associates, the exterior design focuses on outside living. The first-floor accommodations open-out on to a 2,800-square-foot Turkish marble patio and 50-by-20-foot infinity-edge saltwater pool. An elevated walkway takes you to the beach.
Standout features of the home’s open-plan interior include a stunning chrome and glass staircase and custom glass elevator that whisks you up to a 2,400-square-foot rooftop deck.
The main first-floor living area covers almost 5,000 square feet and includes an extraordinary master suite with study/office, his and hers baths and expansive walk-in closets, along with 6 additional en-suite bedrooms.
The second floor, also covering over 5,000 square feet, is designed with entertaining in mind. It features a high-ceilinged great room with three-sided fireplace and large oceanfront deck, a full chef’s kitchen and formal dining area. Catch a movie at the state-of-the-art, 9-seat theater with stadium seating, or just hang-out at the bar with its own glass-fronted wine cellar.
For tennis lovers there’s a hard-surface court outside, along with a six-car garage beneath the home and parking for a further 10 vehicles.
