You’d assume this gorgeous estate in Water Mill dates back to the 19th-century, but it was actually constructed in 2001 and was inspired by the designs of famed architect Richard Morris Hunt. Known for bringing his French Beaux-Arts style to America in the 1800s, Hunt is best known for the facade of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty, and several of the grand homes in Newport. This modern interpretation in the Hamptons is on the market for $11,950,000. It sits on 11.6 acres and has eight bedrooms, a double-height barrel ceiling in the living room, and impeccable French gardens. On the grounds, there’s also a guest house, a huge pool, and a full tennis court.
