The Hamptons are the summer playground of wealthy New Yorkers. They’re also home to some of the most expensive real estate in the country — the Hamptons zip code of Sagaponack, for example, topped our list of the priciest places to buy in the country.
According to a recent report from Douglas Elliman Real Estate, the number of home sales in the Hamptons market is down by 19.2 percent this year, perhaps because of Trouble On Wall Street. Still, that means plenty of high-end homes are still up for grabs.
With the help of real estate site StreetEasy, we’ve rounded up the most expensive properties currently on the market in this Long Island enclave of exclusivity, which ranges from stately Westhampton in the west to beachy Montauk in the east.
Median sales prices may have dropped about 34 percent for luxury listings in the first quarter of this year, but these homes are still up for eye-watering prices.
