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.


There's also an 18th-century carved stone fireplace in the kitchen.

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.
