Few people know how to embrace summer like the A-list celebrities who flock to the East End every year to party, relax, and soak up the sunshine—and it all starts with a killer Hamptons home. Douglas Elliman broker Matthew Breitenbach has a bevy of listings perfect for celebs, or those of us who like to live like ‘em, including these five luxurious houses. For additional information about any of the properties you see here, contact Matthew at Douglas Elliman Real Estate (631-537-6590 office; 631-255-6221 mobile).
This stunning, 15,000-square-foot Bridgehampton home is perfect for funny girl and celeb-of-the-summer Amy Schumer. The multi-talented leading lady can spend quiet mornings on one of the private water-view terraces writing new movie scripts and episodes of Inside Amy Schumer, and evenings screening her work with friends in the professionally designed theater. Bonus: If her friends are too tired to head home after a long night of movies and wine—taken straight from the mansion’s wine cellar—they can crash in one of the 10 bedrooms. Amy won’t even know they’re there.
Few people emanate Hamptons-level class better than fashion “it” girl Olivia Palermo. Something tells us she’d be right at home floating on a giant inflatable swan (donning some seriously stylish swimwear) in this newly developed home’s stunning pool. Surrounded by acres of protected farmland in Wainscott, she could relax luxuriously with friends, without worrying about the prying eyes of the public.
For someone as social as Bravo’s main man Andy Cohen, a home primed for entertaining is key. This fully renovated, 6,000-square-foot Water Mill house is just that. The gated driveway helps keep things exclusive while the lower level, complete with a full bar, billiards, media room, and wine cellar, has everything a celebrity like Cohen would need for a perfect party night in.
A top-notch celebrity chef like Bobby Flay needs a home kitchen where he can really shine, whether by testing out new recipes or cooking up a delicious meal for famous friends. And we imagine the spacious, country kitchen in this lavish, 6,100-square-foot villa would do the trick. There’s enough room for the chef to work his magic, while friends hang out around the island, sipping champagne and taking in the show.
Jennifer Lopez recently flaunted her super-fit figure when she celebrated her birthday at 1OAK Southampton. But for someone constantly followed by paparazzi, getting out to the gym can probably be difficult—which is why an at-home gym, like the one in this new-construction Southampton Village estate, is perfect. Wake up, head down to your private workout center, and be done in time for a poolside breakfast in your A-list backyard. What’s not to love?
