Remember that wonderful day just about a year ago when Behind the Hedges was the very first in the world to trumpet the news that America’s king and queen of music, Beyoncé and Jay-Z, had purchased on Briar Patch Lane in East Hampton? Good times. Ever since then, everyone in the Hamptons has been dying to be invited inside. Well, have we got a scheme for you. Simply buy this property, 73 Briar Patch Lane, which is a rather lovely building by local starchitect Peter Cook, and just so happens to be right next door to America’s Golden Couple.
After you move in, put on your nicest housecoat and fluffy mules, smile, and walk next door. “Yooooo-hoooooooo! Beyoooooooncé! Jaaaaaaay! Anyone home?” Simply introduce yourself as their new neighbor and borrow a cup of sugar before security escorts you out. It’s that easy.
Now is a great time to pounce on this property. Way back in the Sasha Fierce and Blueprint 3 days, the property was asking a whopping $21.5 million. Now, in the OTR 2 days, the property is available for less than half, at $9.9 million. The deets: the 10,000 square foot house boasts 6 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms. The lower level is finished with a media room, bedroom, bathroom, lounge, a gym with a sauna and a steam room. Two features of the house we particularly like are the master bedroom–lovely–and the rotunda dining room, which is perfect for long dinners on buggy nights, since it’s screened in, yet also has a double-sided fireplace.
The plot size is 1.43 acres, which of course includes an attractive infinity edge pool and a pool house. The property also borders a nature preserve.
So what are you waiting for, future Beyoncé bestie? The listing is repped by Bespoke.
