Mariah Carey spent the last two weeks vacationing in the Hamptons and looking down on Madonna — well, at least her house.
Judging by her smile in her latest Instagram post on Monday, Carey enjoyed her stay at the Water Mill estate, a seven-acre spread known as Eagle’s Point, one of the highest elevations in the Hamptons. “It has crazy views,” 28o-degree views from the Bridgehampton polo fields to the Atlantic Ocean, says Shawn Elliott of Nest Seekers International, who with Dylan Eckardt, also of Nest Seekers, was tagged in Carey’s post as the rental agents.
“The house even looks down upon Madonna’s house” in Bridgehampton, Elliott says, noting he pointed out the Queen of Pop’s rooftop to Carey. “It’s very funny, but true.”
If it’s really her “fantasy,” the Songbird Supreme, as Carey is called, can buy it. The property at 954 Noyac Path, also listed with Nest Seekers’ J.B. Andreassi, is on the market for $20 million, as is, or with a to-be-built ultra-luxurious modern home for $50 million.
“You can see, on a clear day, 30 miles out to the Montauk Lighthouse,” Elliott says, adding the property, a combination of three lots, also directly looks out to the Atlantic Golf Club in Bridgehampton, one of the priciest clubs to belong to in the Hamptons as well as the Bridgehampton polo fields, as well as Mecox Bay and its sand bar and beyond that the Atlantic Ocean.
The superstar singer has certainly enjoyed her fair share of luxury accommodations, and she was not disappointed with her stay at this gated, secluded property, which, Elliott says, she paid “six figures.”
What Mariah Carey’s Hamptons Rental Has to Offer
There are actually two fully renovated existing homes offering a total of 8,500 square feet, nine bedrooms, and seven-and-a-half baths. One of the homes had been the summer home of heiress and socialite Sunny Von Bulow’s daughter Ala Isham, whose mother’s life story was made into the Academy Award-winning film, Reversal of Fortune.
The other home, considered the guest house, was a summer getaway spot for fashion designer Randolph Duke, who helped revive the Halston brand in the 1990s.
It’s not the first time a celebrity has been connected to the hillside property. Agents previously said that singer Carrie Underwood, Chicago Cubs’ pitcher Marcus Stroman and award-winning actor Esai Morales stayed there. The property has also been featured in several reality television shows, including the hit Netflix show My Unorthodox Life as it was rented by billionaire media and technological entrepreneur Silvio Scaglia.
The main house features a small movie theater, gym, wine cellar and private decks from each bedroom.
The “outdoor oasis,” as the listing calls it, includes an 81-foot infinity heated gunite pool with imported stone and a waterfall that reportedly cost more than $1 million to build. There is also a tennis court.
Roman James Design Build, a California-based sought-after firm for high-end residential real estate with a portfolio that includes $70 to $100 million in design-and-build projects in the Beverly Hills and Hollywood areas, has plans for a new modern estate.
Asked what brought Carey to the Hamptons, Elliott says he thinks she was looking for relaxation. “I think she had her two weeks, she was kind of craving it for some reason.”
According to The New York Post, Carey brought “an extensive entourage, including her dancer boyfriend Bryan Tanaka.”
She left earlier this week. She could be back for all I know,” he says. She reportedly asked if August was available, and while there is an interested party, there is no signed lease yet. The rent, he says, would be $375,000 for August 1 through Labor Day.
