Belonging to Apollo Global Management co-founder?and the 833rd richest person on the planet?Marc Rowan, this six-bedroom, six and a half bathroom traditional on Southampton's Meadow Lane is one of the East End's pricier listings. It's not hard to figure out why. Designed by Will Schulz and "masterfully" built by Hamilton Hoge, the summertime residence offers views of three bodies of water: Halsey Neck Pond, the Shinnecock Bay and, most importantly, the Atlantic.
As one might expect from a home asking $34M, it comes loaded with high-end details and amenities: Ramage Limestone floors, floating staircases, a library, formal dining room, a master suite with oceanfront balcony, a fireplace and dressing room, and bathrooms using three types of imported marble (only two would be déclassé). The exterior is just as extravagant. The 2.3 acre property boasts extensive landscaping that includes formal gardens, a heated vanishing-edge pool surrounded by Valders limestone terracing, a covered dining area, and a private path to the ocean.
While we can't say that this home is "destined to become a coveted example of quintessential 21st century architecture" like the listing suggests, we do know that Mr. Rowan doesn't look to be in any hurry to sell. Much like the megamansion featured yesterday, this place has been on the market for over three years now without the owner budging on the price.
