Rent the Piano Man’s Hampton House

Everyone summers in the Hamptons, and I mean everyone. So if you are a celebrity worshiper this might be your chance to achieve your dream of actually living in one of their houses.

Welcome to Billy Joel’s Sagaponack home.

The home sits on just over 1 acre in the small East End village of Sagaponack, which is nestled between Bridgehampton and tony East Hampton. The house has more than 140 ft of private beachfront access and a uniquely inverted floor plan with the bedrooms located on the first floor and the living areas located on the top floor. If you think about it, the design is rather clever;  you spend the most time in the living areas which are higher up to give you a better view of the beach and the ocean.

The house is just over 5000 square feet and features a separate 2-car garage with an additional bedroom above it. It was originally built for Roy Schneider who was known for his roles as the Police Chief in Jaws. (“You’re gonna need a bigger boat.”) Billy Joel bought the house in 2007 and renovated it to its current state.

And the price? Well–from August through Labor Day, it can be yours for a mere $250,000. Pocket change for someone with a “New York State of Mind.”
