The Hamptons home of famed gossip columnist, Richard Johnson, and his wife, Sessa von Richthofen, is available to rent this June and July for $28,500 under Douglas Elliman agent, Codi Garcete. It’s also available for just the month of July $18,500, or short term for $15,000.

Johnson edited the New York Post’s column, Page Six, for 25 years and was ranked the No. 1 gossip columnist in New York City by New York Magazine back in 1994.

Standing 2,145 square feet in size, the restored farmhouse has four bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms on nearly an acre of land in south-of-the-highway Hampton Bays. Interior features include an eat-in kitchen, a fireplace in the living room, and a sunroom with a dining area.

Meanwhile, outside there’s a pool, pool house with a kitchenette and full bathroom, and an outdoor shower.

Johnson purchased the property back in 2005 for $885,000.
