Take a Look Inside Jay-Z and Beyoncé's Palatial New Hamptons House
Beyoncé and Jay-Z are already set up for next summer. The couple just spent $26 million on a 12,000-square-foot estate in East Hampton, Behind the Hedges first reported, and it's about as extravagant as you'd expect for two music moguls with a net worth of more than $1 billion. Scroll down to see inside.
The home has seven bedrooms and seven and a half bathrooms.
The Pond House, as it's known, was originally built by Stanford White of McKim, Mead & White, the firm responsible for Manhattan's original Pennsylvania Station and Columbia University's main campus.
It sits on two acres with 203 feet of frontage on Georgica Pond.
It's also adjacent to a 17-acre nature preserve.
The previous owner rotated the house 90 degrees.
Hamptons builder Jeffrey Colle, who is currently working on a home for Billy Joel in Sag Harbor, turned the house to optimize its waterfront location on Georgica Pond.
A triple-height studio became a 30-foot-tall living room facing the pond to the west.
Here's the entrance hall.
The bathrooms feature Italian marble carved from single blocks from Verona.
A separate 1,800-square-foot guest cottage includes a living room, full kitchen, two bedrooms, and bathroom.
The property went on the market in 2009 with an asking price of $39.5 million. It was reduced to $28.95 million after subsequent price cuts and some time off the market. Compass's Lori Schiaffino was the listing broker.
In August, the couple spent $88 million on a compound in Los Angeles.
