one moment please...
Sagaponack, NY, United States

How would you like to live in the Piano Man’s Hamptons home? Well, for all you Billy Joel fans, your moment in the sun has come, because for just $250,000 you can have his Hamptons home for all of… the month of August. It appears that after experiencing a somewhat turbulent journey with this home—the house has been on and off the market several times since 2009—Joel and his pad are parting ways yet again, and this time he’s spiced up his offer a bit. Not only has the price dropped from an astronomical $23.5 million to a slightly less astronomical $19.95 million, but the singer/songwriter has apparently opened his eyes to the possibility of renting… however pricey. Baby steps.

We’ve all seen this phenomenon when a seller has such a personal attachment to a home that they can’t seem to price it reasonably? Is this one of those instances? Or is the Sagaponack home worth the cost? You be the judge.

For starters the home has received one makeover by Oprah-approved designer Nate Berkus. He’s responsible for that stunning cathedral ceiling in the living room your gaze keeps shifting toward. You’ve probably also noticed the living room’s wall of French doors that create a seamless indoor/outdoor living space, while literally putting the beach right at your feet. He also designed that spacious, stainless steel chef’s kitchen. And if placing a tub right in front of a fireplace is some sort of feng shui move, we’re completely on board.

A second renovation involved refinishing the wood floors, removing some unnecessary stenciling from the previous renovation. Truthfully, we think removing the stenciling was a smart move. No one needs the floors to compete with that insanely gorgeous ceiling. Four bedrooms and a separate studio completes the home, along with 5,550-square-foot, shingled cottage. Here’s hoping the Piano Man can find a buyer–or renter–this time.
