This Hamptons beach cottage may not be super fashion-forward, but considering Stella McCartney’s tailored style and commitment to animal rights, it makes sense that the designer would opt for a more laid-back look. And if this fresh, summery aesthetic appeals to you, you’re in luck; the Observer reports that McCartney and her husband Alasdhair Willis, the creative director of Hunter boots, have listed the Napeague Bay house as a $30,000 a month rental (or $20,000 after the summer). The couple bought the property, along with the adjacent empty lot, for $1.7 million last August, opting for an Amagansett location not far from where Paul McCartney has owned a large estate since the ’90s.
The 1,350-square-foot residence has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, vaulted ceilings, an open living/dining area, and lovely beach views. It was built in 1972, and as such, could probably use some updating, namely in the kitchen.
Outside, there’s a porch and a hammock.
McCartney and Willis have two sons, ages 12 and 9, and two daughters, ages 11 and 7, so as the Observer speculates, they may be renting the home out until they’re ready to build something larger on the site. They also own a London townhouse and an English countryside estate.
