The insane Hamptons real estate scene of ‘Million Dollar Beach House’

michael jhon

A 3,300-square-foot modern mansion boasts five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a heated pool, a roof deck with a fire pit and a deep-water dock — for a yacht, of course — that juts into Sag Harbor Cove.

The place is “a panty-dropper,” says real-estate agent Peggy Zabakolas.

It’s one of the jaw-dropping properties featured on “Million Dollar Beach House,” a reality show about the cutthroat Hamptons property market premiering Wednesday, Aug. 26, on Netflix that follows five brokers at the Nest Seekers agency who go to extreme lengths to please mercurial clients, score listings and close multimillion-dollar deals, all while avoiding on-screen drama.

That last goal, naturally, doesn’t last long. Just take the Sag Harbor spread, priced at $5.99 million last year. The owner, who dubbed her Hamptons hideaway the Patti Shack, has frumpy taste.

“Patti has Buddhas and tchotchkes everywhere,” says listing agent Michael Fulfree, who stands to make $360,000

Clinton Hill Neo-Federal Townhouse With Renovated Kitchen, Porch Asks $2.399 Million

michael jhon

This Clinton Hill neo-Federal bundles a practical early 20th century floor plan, original details, room for a home office and outdoor space all in a rather narrow package. At 445 Washington Avenue, it’s within the Clinton Hill Historic District.

It’s one of a row of four houses that are a bit more modern than some of the neighbors, having been built in 1922 on the site of a former 19th century wood frame manse. While initial plans called for replacing the house with a six-story apartment house, locals objected, according to a 1922 Brooklyn Daily Eagle article. It included a preliminary sketch of the “modern dwellings of Colonial design” that a new owner was planning to construct instead of the objectionable multi-family dwelling. The row of single-family homes ultimately built to the designs of architects Slee & Bryson are a bit more modest than the original sketch, but still include

michael jhon

Musician John Legend and his wife, model and social-media celebrity Chrissy Teigen, are listing their Beverly Hills home for $23.95 million.

The couple and their two children, 4-year-old daughter Luna and 2-year-old son Miles, have been sheltering at the property during the coronavirus pandemic.

During this time, Mr. Legend said he has participated in a number of projects at the home, including writing new music, filming his appearances for “The Voice” television show and participating in numerous virtual performances including a massive Global Citizen event in April. “It’s made us appreciate it more,” Mr. Legend said of the house.

Mr. Legend said they would not be moving were it not for the fact that Ms. Teigen is pregnant with the couple’s third child. As a prospective family of five plus Ms. Teigen’s mother, who lives with them, they simply need more space, he said.

The Los Angeles mansion Louis Tomlinson shared with his now ex-girlfriend Danielle Campbell is back on the market for $6.75 million.

Tomlinson bought the home in 2016 for $7.3 million to be closer to his son who he shares with his ex Briana Jungwirth. He listed it last year on Los Angeles’s Multiple Listing Service for just under $7 million, according to Homes.com. The home has now been relisted by Sotheby’s real estate agent Eric Lavey on Homes.com at a $550,000 discount from what Tomlinson originally bought it for.

Designers’ Hayden Island manufactured home, for sale at $125,000, has ‘$1 million view’

michael jhon

Before they were married, Hingyi and Julia Khong thought about settling down in a tiny house. Instead, the two, both designers and makers, expanded their dream and bought an old manufactured home desperately in need of do-it-yourself improvements.

By the time the Khongs held their wedding ceremony at their home on Hayden Island, they had replaced the vinyl flooring and shag carpet with white-washed oak they finished themselves.

They laid tile in the kitchen and master bathroom, and removed an ill-fitting add-on that blocked the sight of ospreys, blue herons and bald eagles flying by.

The couple said “I do” inside a glass-enclosed porch with a movable wall that reveals an unobstructed view of the Columbia River and downtown Vancouver, Washington.

“We wanted the house to feel like you’re floating on a cloud,” says Julia Khong.

Six years and career changes later, they have now listed their “magnificent” mobile home,
