Fashion designer and artist Helmut Lang is prepared to offload his oceanfront Hamptons estate — and could seek a steep $100 million for it.

The East Hampton home — the address, at or around 8 Tyson Lane, is unclear — is being marketed as a whisper listing until it’s officially on the market, the New York Post reported. Lang bought the home for $15.5 million in 1999, after outbidding Jerry Seinfeld by $1 million.

The compound dates back to the 1940s, according to the report. It includes an 8,700-square-foot main house, a guest cottage and studio on five acres of land. The property is near Further Lane, where hedge funder Barry Rosenstein made a record $147 million buy in 2014.

Lang previously rented a house nearby on Further Lane, the report said, before deciding to buy. [NYP] — Meenal Vamburkar
