First spotted by Curbed, this funky home in Greenport, Long Island was built in 1930 as the town’s laundry and has since been converted into this very cool live-work loft. Listed for $1.3 million, the 4,400-square-foot building has an exposed greenhouse-inspired roof and big, open rooms full of original woodwork and pops of lime green. Also included in the sale is an adjacent cottage that could be used as a guest house or additional workspace.

This super cool East Hampton home could easily be mistaken for a traditional southern California mid-century modern masterpiece. Built in 1964 at the height of the movement, the four-bedroom home was designed for indoor-outdoor living with floor-to-ceiling glass windows in every room, a large saltwater pool, and even a tennis court. It’s currently for sale for $2,695,000.

Billionaire investor, art collector, and gallery owner Adam Lindemann has dropped the price of his Montauk mansion to $15.5 million. He originally listed the sprawling property in 2015 for $29.5 million. Earlier that same year, Lindemann bought another nearby property that had once belonged to Andy Warhol and was listed for $85 million. His “smaller” estate is a 7,500-square-foot, traditional wood-shingled estate that sits atop the Montauk bluffs. In addition to its incredible shoreline views and three-acre lot, the home was renovated by architect David Adjaye. The interiors are fabulous, and the grounds boast a large heated pool and jacuzzi, several covered and uncovered patios, and a private staircase leading down to a secluded cove. Adding to the selling points is that it’s available fully furnished, including some of the high-end contemporary art.

As was first reported by the Wall Street Journal, the historic home in the Hamptons where Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis spent her childhood summers has hit the market for $7.5 million. Known as Wildmoor, the home was built in 1865 and was owned by Jackie’s grandfather John Vernou Bouvier Jr. in the early 1900s. By the time Jackie was a child in the 1930s, her grandparents had bought an even more impressive East Hampton home called Lasata, which left Wildmoor free for Jackie and her parents when they left Park Avenue for the Hamptons during the summer.

The warm weather is upon us, and it’s undoubtedly going to make staying indoors harder. But not if this East Hampton home is where you’re be sheltering in place. The incredible 7,000-square-foot residence has six bedrooms, seven-and-a-half bathrooms, and outdoor space that’ll make you drool. The pool is a whopping 20′ x 50′ and has a sun shelf and hot tub. There’s a covered dining area and an outdoor kitchen with a built-in gas grill and stainless steel refrigerator and drink drawers (did someone say pool-side cocktails?!).

The interior isn’t too shabby, either

Mansion Global reports that the sprawling oceanfront estate at 26 and 32 Windmill Lane in East Hampton has closed for $45 million, as per sources close to the deal. Though they can’t confirm the final sale price, Douglas Elliman does tell us that it’s the most expensive sale in the Hamptons since 2016. The 6.7-acre property, which was listed for $60 million in July and most recently for $55 million, was built in 1989 for former Union Pacific president and chairman James Evans. There’s a massive main house with beautiful beachy interiors and tons of outdoor space including a 50-foot pool, as well as a separate guest house.

It’s been a busy 2020 so far for Real Housewives of New York alum Bethenny Frankel, who’s finally unloaded two properties: her Soho condo and one of her Hamptons retreats. The Post reported last week that Frankel sold her seven-bedroom residence in Bridgehampton for $2.28 million after listing it for $2.99 million. It’s a good thing she made a slight profit there because her Soho condo ended up selling for a significant loss. After almost three years on the market, Frankel sold her two-bedroom apartment at 22 Mercer Street for $3.65 million, the Observer reported last month. That’s a $550,000 loss compared to the $4.2 million she paid for the pad in 2014—and more if you factor in what she spent on an extensive renovation.

Two years after putting her Hamptons home on the market for $3.8 million, actress Ellen Pompeo has sold the property for $2,995,000. The “Grey’s Anatomy” star bought the eight-acre site for $950,000 in 2011, and in 2013, had the current modern-farmhouse constructed, which she then designed herself. In addition to its gorgeous decor, the residence boasts beautifully manicured lawns and a heated, Gunite pool.

This Water Mill waterfront home at 38 Cobb Isle Road could easily be a glittering international resort, complete with gorgeous indoor pool and spa right off the kitchen. The pool becomes an outdoor pool in warm weather, and the house itself is on Mecox Bay with the views you’d expect, surrounded by water. Asking $9,495,000, the home, designed by renowned Southampton-based architect Mark C. Matthews, spans 6,150 square feet and has six bedrooms; there’s a gym and full bath above the garage, which could become a guest suite.
