One of Hollywood’s cutest couples has listed their Hamptons home that is possibly just as adorable as they are. Curbed reports that Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber have put their Amagansett residence on the market for $5,850,000.

The 6,100-square-foot shingle-style cottage is “a charming blend of beachcomber chic and traditional style,” according to the listing for the six-bedroom, 7.5-bathroom home. And in true Hamptons fashion, it’s the outdoor space that’s really magnificent. In addition to the gunite pool, there’s a pool house with a pergola-covered terrace, an outdoor brick fireplace, and sprawling landscaped gardens.

406 Old Montauk Highway, Cool Listings, Montauk Estate For Sale, Andy Warhol's former home, Adam Lindemann, David Adjaye, Mickey Drexler, Millard Drexler, Hamptons Real Estate

Though it may seem unlikely, there are some similarities between art and real estate, one of the biggest being that with big fish come big numbers. That’s definitely the case for billionaire art collector and gallery owner Adam Lindemann–buyer of Andy Warhol’s former Montauk estate, Eothen, which was listed for $85 million. The contemporary art world high-roller recently listed his nearby property at 406 Old Montauk Highway for $29.5 million.

The home was built in 2004; After he acquired it, Lindemann–who is married to gallerist Amalia Dayan, granddaughter of the late Israeli politician Moshe Dayan–hired British architect David Adjaye to take on a complete redesign. The 5,000- square-foot, six-bedroom home is now a unique residence in the far-east end of Long Island affectionately referred to as “the end of the world,” though the former fishing enclave has in recent years become a more-chill-than-the-Hamptons hip celebrity party spot.

“I knew Andy in the early 1980s as a very young man, and I’m a collector of his work . . . I’m very lucky to have this opportunity to live out this dream. It’s a work of art.” This is what billionaire art collector and Upper East Side gallery owner Adam Lindemann told the Post regarding going into contract on Andy Warhol’s $85 million former Montauk estate and equestrian farm.

Warhol bought the 30-acre compound, known as “Eothen,” in 1972 along with filmmaker friend Paul Morrissey for a mere $225,000, putting Montauk on the map as an A-list retreat on par with the East End. As 6sqft reported when the listing hit the market in June, “For years, the artist used the compound as a city retreat, entertaining friends and luminaries that included Jackie Onassis, Mick Jagger, Elizabeth Taylor and John Lennon. Back then, guests of Warhol enjoyed 600 feet of private oceanfront and 24 acres on the bluffs overlooking the ocean.” And now Lindemann, whose fortune comes from his father George Lindemann‘s success in pharmaceuticals and pipeline companies, can try to relive these glory days.

New Yorkers are always looking for new ways to stay young, and the next health craze may be just a bridge or tunnel away in Long Island at the Bioscleave House in East Hampton. Arakawa and Madeline Gins are the masterminds behind the house, which is also referred to as the Lifespan Extending Villa. The duo’s design philosophy is to combat mortality by creating architecture that makes people use their bodies in unexpected ways, challenging them to maintain equilibrium, in turn stimulating their immune systems.

“They ought to build hospitals like this,” Ms. Gins told the New York Times in a 2008 interview. Although the idea sounds fascinating and beneficial for all, their out-of-the-box methods might not be exactly what you’d expect. With undulating floors–possibly unsafe for children–and a variety of other disorienting details, the verdict is still out on whether or not their methods will, in fact, reverse the aging process as they claim.

Grey Gardens Estate

If you love historic homes and the macabre, it really doesn’t get any better than the Grey Gardens Estate in East Hampton. As the Post reports, the beautiful home steeped in infamy is again up for rent starting September 15th through July of next year. The asking? You better dig deep into your pockets because it’s going for an incredible $175,000 a month. Quite pricey, yes, but if you consider that designer Liz Lange has been paying $250,000 a month to call it her summer escape, it’s kind of a deal.

Plum Island NY

The Hamptons are increasingly a hotbed for crazy real estate offerings, from Andy Warhol’s recently listed former compound now selling for $85 million to the teeny tiny trailer in Amagansett asking $1.2 million earlier this year. But now NPR reports that there’s an 840-acre island just off the tip of Long Island complete with miles and miles of untouched shoreline, acres of undeveloped woods, a lighthouse and a ferry terminal that could go for as much as $1 billion when it hits the auction block. Oh, yes, and it’s also contaminated with foot-and-mouth disease.

2983 Montauk Highway, english barn

Forgot Hamptons beach houses–try farmhouses instead. Pictured above is an original 1740s barn that sits on 3.7 acres of land in Sagaponack, a village of Southampton. The structure’s intact posts and beams are an example of the traditional English barn design, construction that was brought over by English settlers. The architecture has been meticulously restored and slightly altered to accommodate living spaces. The result? A truly unique residence surrounded by beautiful land and a pool. Start saving your pennies, as it is now on the market asking $2.4 million.

This rectangularly shaped house was originally built in the mid-1960s and is situated at the top of a natural knoll in Lloyd Neck, New York. The home’s current design could be described as “upside down” since the private bedroom areas are located on the ground floor and the public areas above. Its recent renovation was completed in 2008 by BSC Architecture and was cleverly named the Graft House after their unique design approach.

If you’re going to live in the middle of nature in Amagansett, a hamlet on the south shore of Long Island, you want to be reminded of the beautiful outdoors as much as possible. That seems to be the inspiration behind this home built by the architecture firm Levenbetts, who designed this property for a couple and their teenage children. It’s been dubbed the 36SML House and was designed as three connected wings—a wing for the couple, another wing for their kids, and yet another one for guests. A driveway cuts through the middle of the home, and there’s a roof deck (with amphitheater seating!) on top. Each wing of the house also creates separate courtyard spaces to accommodate parking space, a vegetable garden, and a play area with a swimming pool. Thoroughly impressed by the exterior?
