Billy Joel's Hamptons Beach House on the Market for $23.5 Million
The piano man is trying to sell his 5,500-square-foot Sagaponack home — for the third time.
Will the third time be the charm for Billy Joel's Hamptons beach house? The piano man recently put his 5,500-square-foot Sagaponack home on the market for the third time in four years. He first listed it for $22.5 million 2009, then $19.9 million in 2010. This time, he's aiming for an all-time high asking price of $23.5 million.
The vast four-bedroom, six-bathroom home, which Joel purchased from late actor Roy Scheider in 2007, offers 145 feet of beautiful oceanfront. The interior, which was designed by Nate Berkus, isn't too shabby, either. While some celebrity homes tend to be ostentatious, there are a lot of tasteful details to love in each room of this house. The sprawling living room boasts a cathedral ceiling with exposed rafters. The spacious and sunny chef's kitchen is a cook's dream. The tub in the master bathroom faces a fireplace, with ornate sliding doors marking the entryway. Both floors offer terraces with seascape views, and the grounds include a studio annex. Though there isn't a swimming pool, the listing mentions there is room for a pool on the one-acre property.
The listing is carried by Corcoran.
