Billy Joel rounded up another equestrian estate, this time buying in East Hampton.

The legendary singer spent $10.7 million to purchase 143 Town Lane in the Hamptons community, the New York Post reported. The sale quietly unfolded in December; the property hasn’t appeared on the market since 2019, according to Zillow.

Built in 2001, the estate spans more than five acres with 3,500 square feet of interior livable space, breaking the sale down to $3,057 per square foot. The property includes four bedrooms and five bathrooms.

The property has extensive equestrian facilities, including an eight-stall heated barn with a hayloft and tack room, a Grand Prix field and a sand ring. The grounds also have a lily pond and gunite pool, according to the Zillow listing.

Joel’s wife, Alexis Roderick, is an accomplished equestrian and the property adds to a common theme in the family’s other real estate holdings. In 2018, Joel purchased an equestrian estate in Wellington, Florida for $3.5 million, according to the Daily Mail

Joel and his wife also wanted to build a 12-horse facility on their property in Centre Island, NBC New York reported, though neighbors’ concerns about the potential smell of horse manure complicated those plans. Joel listed the Long Island estate last year for $49 million.

In 2015, Joel purchased a 13,000-square-foot, eight bedroom mansion in Palm Beach for $22.1 million before putting the 1.6-acre property back on the market in 2018 for $21.9 million.  

The Grammy winner also sold a vacant lot at 1930 South Ocean Boulevard in Palm Beach in 2018 for $7.5 million. Joel also owns a summer home in another Hamptons locale, Sag Harbor. 


Joel is weeks away from ending a historic residency at New York’s Madison Square Garden, where he’s set to perform for the 150th time in his life in July. This year, he released “Turn the Lights Back On,” his first single in 17 years.
