A Hamptons mansion that was owned by the late shoe designer Vince Camuto and his wife, Louise, listed for $72 million is now in contract. Scroll down for a look at what will likely be the region's most expensive sale in at least a year.

The 15-acre property in Water Mill includes 1,100 feet of waterfront and views of the Mecox Bay.


Vince Camuto, who co-founded Nine West, purchased the estate with his wife for $35 million in 2005, according to WWD.

They undertook a five-year renovation.

The couple previously listed it for $100 million in 2008.


The house was originally built in 1887 and previously served as a convent for the Sisters of St. Dominic of Amityville.

The main house is 20,000 square feet.


The entrance hall, shown here, has two massive bronze doors and sconces that date back to 1890.

The house spans four levels.


Here's one of the 12-and-a-half bathrooms.


There are also 11 bedrooms, including a six-room master suite.

The kitchen is filled with Statuary marble.

"No expense was spared in making [the house] what it is today, listing broker Zach Vichinsky told the Wall Street Journal.


"It’s one of the most iconic properties, not only in the Hamptons but probably in the country if not in the world," Vichinsky said.

Here's the climate-controlled wine cellar.


Outside, there's an all-weather tennis court.


And a heated, 68-by-30-foot gunite pool.

The grounds also include a carriage house and guest house.


While the sale price has not been reported, it will probably surpass last year's record.


According to Curbed, the priciest home sold in the area in 2017 was an oceanfront carriage house on Gin Lane in Southampton that went for $31 million.
