As real estate gets more and more luxurious, and people want their estates to be more and more accommodating to their lifestyle choices (whatever those may be), trends begin to emerge. And right now, there’s a trend that’s enjoyable on so many levels.
Though in the past elevators have really been mostly understood as something that one will find in the home of someone who particularly needs it, the amenity is rising in popularity in the luxury estate sector. In fact, many of the high-end, very expensive Hamptons homes have one.
Let’s check out a few of them.
“Twin Peaks,” 9 Olde Towne Lane
This Southampton village estate is on the market for $39.5 million. It features 10 bedrooms, 12 full bathrooms, and three half-baths sitting at about 15,500-square-feet on four acres of land.
Other than the convenience of an elevator, the home features amenities such as a theatre, gym, pool house with a great room, barbecue patio, and sunken tennis court.
191 Highland Terrace
This $45 million Bridgehampton home has 14,000-square-feet of living space. In that, there are seven bedrooms, nine full bathrooms, and two half-baths on about 10 acres of land. That’s including the 240 feet of water frontage on the property.
The home was built in a contemporary design, including walls of glass. Unfortunately, there aren’t any photos available of the interior, but the modern design sparks some serious curiosity for what the elevator in this home looks like.
40 Further Lane
The home at 40 Futher Lane in East Hampton is asking $26.5 million. Considering this is on of the less expensive homes on this list (though not the least expensive), it’s impossible to proceed without mentioning that with the trend of elevators, there is also a trend in price.
This home is also the smallest home featured here, at 4,500-square-feet on 2.4 acres of land. The home features five bedrooms and six bathrooms. Other amenities include a salt water pool, pool house, three-car garage, gourmet kitchen, finished lower level, and media room. The lower level and its entertaining areas are all accessed by—what else?—the elevator.
This Bridgehampton home is asking $5.995 million, making it the least expensive home featured, but not even the smallest. The home sits at 7,400-square-feet with six bedrooms, seven full bathrooms, and two half-baths. Why, then, would it be significantly less expensive than the Further Lane home, for instance? Well, it’s on just about a half acre of land.
The home features a two-car garage and gunite pool.
