As far as we know, family-man Neil Patrick Harris doesn’t partake in the swinger lifestyle, so he’ll likely have to do a bit of updating (and perhaps, cleaning) at his new East Hampton home–the notorious “orgy estate” where an elite sex club hosted an over-the-top event this past summer. The Post reports that Harris and hubby David Burtka dropped $5.5 million on the sprawling estate, which sits on 13.5 acres of open meadows and gardens and boasts a tennis court, pool and pool house, renovated barn, and beachy 5,500-square-foot main home.

The traditional, shingle-style home was built in 2001, using cherry and ash wood, limestone floors, and wood paneled and plaster walls on the interior.

It has four bedrooms, all of which have en-suite baths, a French chef’s kitchen, four fireplaces, a library, wine cellar, screen porch, upper-level decks, and rooftop hot tub.

The home at 400 Hands Creek Road was once owned by Grove Street Press publisher Barney Rosset, who’s known for controversial titles such as D.H. Lawrence’s “Lady Chatterley’s Lover,” Henry Miller’s “Tropic of Cancer” and “The Autobiography of Malcolm X.” It originally listed for $7.49 million in 2014, so Harris and Burtka got quite the deal. The Hamptons home will likely be a summer getaway for the couple and their five-year-old twins Gideon and Harper, as they also own a historic, quirky Harlem brownstone, which they bought in 2013 for $4 million and then undertook a year-long renovation.
