Hello, everyone. It’s great to start a new week having you here. Today we’re seeing a very special beach house, starting with its location; the Hamptons. Perhaps the ultimate place to own a beach cottage, but as we all know a prime location never comes cheap. So, how much do you think this classic Hamptons Beach house should cost?

The listing of this property for sale claims this is a once in a lifetime opportunity since rarely this kind of property with such natural beauty and importance becomes available.

The first time ever offered, this shingled Hamptons style beach house features over 6100 sq.ft. and was designed by Kenneth Bainton and built by Andreassen Bulgin. It has 5 bedrooms and 4.5 baths, antique beams and rich oak woodwork and flooring throughout. The dramatic 2-story living room with soaring wood beams was once a barn taken from the Hever Castle Estate in Kent England where the 2nd and 4th wife of King Henry VIII lived dating back from 1570 and then was brought over and reconstructed within the residence. Classy enough for you?

But that’s not all, other amenities include: a formal dining room warmed by a fireplace, alfresco dining on the brick patio, a sun-drenched conservatory, heated gunite pool, a 2-car garage, and a 3rd story sun deck with panoramic 360-degree views.

A property with such phenomenal expanse, peace, privacy and exclusivity is rare to find, even in the Hamptons.

Another thing that the listing claims is that a trophy property of this magnitude and unparalleled beauty will not be on the market for long. Now, we’re talking about an asking price of $45,000,000. Do you think a property of this caliber and price can be sold fast? Would you spend this much money on it?

Let’s take a look…

Living Room

The living room structure is a re-assembled oak barn imported from England, parts of which date back over 250 years. Even if for some reason you don’t like the decor, we can’t deny this is a truly special space.

I have to say that I love the furnishings in this room, but I would replace that billiard table to a nice dining room table and chairs. How about you? 🙂

The decor in this space is transitional, following coastal, rustic to French trends.

I won’t lie, for $45 mil I was expecting a much bigger and fancier kitchen. Having said that, this one is charming with its aged white oak cabinets and industrial pendant lighting.

Master Bedroom

You can’t complain about the decor when you have that kind of view, but I do think this space needs more personality. I would add a nice light fixture, some millwork, change the wallpaper for a fresh coat of paint, change the sliding doors to French doors. Oh, I could go on and on here. 🙂

I love seeing houses for sale, not only the multi-million dollar ones. In fact, I am always searching for houses in my area and other places. I feel it’s wonderful not only to know the market but also to see not staged homes. They always inspires me. Some I love to see because I start to change them in my mind, others simply take my breath away and make me wish I could win the lottery. 🙂 Anyhow, I always end-up having fun seeing houses for sale.

Did you guys have a good weekend? Mine was great, very calm. I didn’t do much, stayed mostly at home with the kids, I workout — much less than I wish I had, I admit, but it was the weekend after all, right? 🙂

I just want to welcome this new week with my open heart… may all of us have a Blessed week, with good news, good perspectives, new goals. May we feel refreshed. May we find new dreams, laughter, love and blessings.

May we all be open to good changes. Changes that will make us grow and to be happier and more whole.

Thank you for being here right now. I want you to always know and feel my gratitude for that.

We’ll talk again tomorrow.

with Love,

    While this is a very nice house, you are clearly paying for the location with this asking price. I can imagine someone purchasing it & tearing the house down to it’s foundation & then rebuilding.

  2. 45 million? I knew it would be expensive but gee not that high….though it is gorgeous and I found myself doing little tweaks visually here and there as I scrolled through the pictures imagining if i were moving in:) Gorgeous!

  3. Deborah said,

    Very underwhelmed, guess I’ll keep my $45 million till something else comes along

  4. Susan S said,

    The home and the location are phenomenal, but I can’t help thinking how many fabulous vacations could be enjoyed for 45 million!

  5. Design Chic said,

    I’m just trying to think how much you would have to be worth to have a 45 million dollar house!! Wow. The views and outdoor areas are incredible…hope you’re having a great week!
