A wine cellar that holds 5,000 bottles was this year’s addition to a mansion on the market for a summer rental in Sagaponack, in Southampton, the Wall Street Journal reported. Each year, the owner adds something new to lure renters and increase the value of his property, an 8,300-square-foot home on 1.3 acres of land.
The house has eight bedrooms, nine bathrooms, four fireplaces, a two-car garage and an infinity pool. Other amenities include a sauna, gameroom and media room with theater seating. The home also features a growing collection of artwork from 18th to 20th century artists. The rent is $500,000 from Memorial Day to July, $160,000 for July alone or $400,000 for July and September. The house was built in 2004, and the owner has been renting it out for several years, sometimes to celebrities, though listing agent, Robert Simonson from the Corcoran Group won’t reveal who. [WSJ]
