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.

An East Hampton Village home with roots dating back to the 17th-century is on the market for $4.495 million. The property at 177 Main Street was originally a Colonial saltbox built in 1680 and owned by John Mulford, one of the founders of the village. The home was named Congress Hall in the mid-19th-century as then-owner David Mulford used the space for local men to gather and talk about politics. After the site sold in 2012, owners transformed the property into a 5,500-square-foot compound with five bedrooms and five-and-a-half baths.

Living in a windmill is unique on its own, but living in the same windmill that Marilyn Monroe once rented is really something else. Built in 1830, the Amagansett windmill was converted to a residence in the 1950s by Samuel Rubin, creator of the Faberge perfume company. Over the years, it was rented by many famous names, including Kurt Vonnegut, Terrance Stamp, and, in 1957, Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller, who were looking to get away from the press in the city. The two-bedroom home sits on nearly five-and-a-half acres and is for sale asking $11,500,000.

Called Escapade a la Campagne (“getaway in the countryside”), the home was built in 2017 by its current owners and comes complete with everything you need to feel like you’ve escaped to Provence–a greenhouse, bocci court, a saltwater pool, and the nearly 10,000-square-foot main house with its soaring beamed ceilings and country details. The 5.4-acre property also includes an entire solar farm and is adjacent to a protected nature preserve. It’s currently asking $7,900,000.

In 1998, the same year she began her breakout role in Sex and the City, actress Kim Cattrall bought this East Hampton home for just $450,000, according to the New York Times, who first reported that it’s now been listed for $3,250,000. The shingled home is a lovely mix of casual beach house and contemporary design, and the property also has a detached studio. “I thought about selling the property after my divorce in 2004,” Cattrall told the Times, “but I just couldn’t — 22 years later, it’s time.”
