Fresh on the Hamptons market is this timeless luxury estate listed for a not-so-humble $7.75 million.
With classic charm, contemporary amenities, and private access to Southampton’s exclusive Cooper Beach, the lucky new homeowner will go from always dreaming to actually living out the ultimate coastal lifestyle.
Whoever snatches the lavish property in this star-studded Southampton community will not only boast a beautiful home but a lengthy roster of elite neighbors, including Beyoncé and Jay-Z, Jennifer Lopez, Gwenyth Paltrow, Ralph Lauren, and Bon Jovi.
The affluent community regularly attracts A-listers thanks to its exclusivity among lush landscaping and world-class beaches — a welcome break from the bustle of nearby New York City.
But the Hamptons house’s current owner has his own claim to fame.
The estate’s current owner, Anthony Bonomo, co-owned the 143rd Kentucky Derby’s award-winning horse, “Always Dreaming”, back in 2017 along with his longtime pal Vincent Viola.
The two grew up together in 1960s Brooklyn, ‘always dreaming’ of one day winning the highest-attended Thoroughbred stakes race in North America. The ambitious pair finally achieved their equine dreams thanks to their champion colt, who also won 1st place in the Florida Derby that same year.
Now, Bonomo’s Hamptons house is up for grabs for equestrian enthusiasts and beach lovers alike.
Bonomo first purchased the 23 Heady Creek Lane home back in 2014 for just $4.4 million, still high but paling in comparison to its current price tag. But one look at the stately property and you’ll quickly realize its worth.
Featuring quintessential Hamptons charm adorned with all the modern luxury updates you could ask for, it merits as much recognition as its current owner’s all-star racehorse.
Pass through a posh cobblestone driveway and you’ll be greeted by a traditional stately Southampton pad, complete with 6 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms on a sprawling half-acre of land.
Inside, an imposing great room featuring high vaulted ceilings with crown molding, an opulent chandelier, and elegant hardwood floors hint at the opulence featured throughout the rest of the house.
The living area beckons with a spacious floor plan that extends to the luxurious chef’s kitchen boasting a marble-glossed island and cutting-edge appliances.
The Southampton house’s bedrooms each have their distinct ‘personality’, some boasting charming moody decor.
Descending to the lower level, you’ll find dual entertainment spaces, a full bed and bath ideal for overnight guests, a walk-in wine cellar, and a home gym.
The home flawlessly mixes timeless style, like cozy statement fireplaces, with state-of-the-art additions like a Sonos sound system across the property.
Inviting indoor-outdoor-style glass doors seamlessly flow into the expansive backyard, which features a covered lounge area, barbecue pit, and heated pool with a waterfall spa- all perfect for throwing a memorable 4th of July bash.
A separate pool house with its own kitchen and bathroom offers added convenience and comfort while lounging outdoors.
