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.

 

5. This Sag Harbor six-bedroom home has 500 feet of waterfront, with a two-tiered pool overlooking the bluffs beyond. At $49 million, it’s set with rock-rimmed ponds and gardens, direct water access for sports like kayaking, and a 12,000-square-foot main house.

 
 

4. This classic Italianate villa setup in Bridgehampton will set you back a cool $50 million. Situated on a pristine private golf course, with a grass tennis court, pool, pool house, formal rose garden, and caretaker’s home, it’s a complete estate.

 
 

3. Down a half-mile private drive lies this $55 million five-bedroom modern estate, set on a bluff with endless oceanfront.

 
 

2. For $59 million, you can pick up this parcel of four lots that combine for 15 acres, all with water views on Lake Agawam. That includes this historic, sprawling 1970s modern mansion, a pool and tennis court on site, and a lawn that’s been sculpted to look like a golf fairway.

 
 

1. And finally, at a whopping $140 million, this classic mansion comes in as the most expensive house for sale in the Hamptons. From a stately library to full gym, the interior has been decked out with contemporary amenities, but the real kicker of the property is the privacy, grounds, and prime location.
