Hamptons homes for sale with underground tunnels

Good for when it rains, probably


Everyone has an idea of what would be in their dream home; maybe it’s a beach cottage on the ocean with hardwood floors, maybe it’s a mansion with a fully-equipped home theatre in the basement.

But has an underground tunnel ever made your list of must-have amenities? Let’s check out three Hamptons homes for sale with secret passageways on the property.

673 Sagaponack Road, Sagaponack

The temperature-controlled underground tunnel in this Sagaponack home leads to the separate guest house on the property. The 9,700-square-foot main house has six bedrooms, six full bathrooms, and two half-baths, while the guest house—built in 1853—has a living room, fireplace, kitchenette, and guest suite.

Other amenities in this newly built estate include a three-stop elevator, smart home technology, a heated gunite salt water pool, and two-car garage. The master suite has dual walk-in closets, a fireplace, and private terrace. The asking price is $13.25 million

748 Ocean Road, Bridgehampton

This 3.8-acre Bridgehampton property has a total of four structures including a six-bedroom main house, 3,500-square-foot recreation barn, pool house, and garage. The tunnel connects the main house to the recreation barn, which has a basketball court, living room, loft, and a half-bathroom.

The asking price is $12.75 million.

199 Wainscott Harbor Road, Sagaponack

OK, so the tunnel here might not be the most attractive feature of the home, and right now it’s not totally clear where it leads. The listing says:

The cottage is situated so that you can connect, via basement tunnel (see photo), up to a 6000 sf main house in the center of the property and keep the great cottage as a guest house.

However, that 6,000-square-foot home hasn’t been built yet. The updated cottage that is currently on the 1.59-acre property is 800-square-feet with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The property is large enough to accommodate, as the listing further suggests, a pool, pool house, and even a tennis court.

The asking price is $1,725,000.
