Billy Joel’s phenomenal Sagaponack residence has recently been listed for a figure just shy of $20 million—a whopping $3.5 million less than the amount the acclaimed musician was hoping to unload it for last November.
Originally built for the late actor Roy Scheider in 1994, the oceanfront stunner—which sits on an acre—was purchased and renovated by Joel in 2009.
Among the bright and charming home’s most notable features is its intriguing inverted floor scheme—its four en suite bedrooms are located on the ground floor, while its kitchen, dining room, and living room are on its second. The unusual plan is meant to maximize the property’s marvelous ocean views.
Along with a 145-foot private stretch of beach, the gorgeous 5,500-square-foot estate touts a state-of-the-art kitchen complete with a butler’s pantry, and a two-car garage attached to a spacious one-bedroom guest suite.
Rest assured, the fresh and modern bungalow—which is highlighted by natural, yet beautifully kept landscaping—is well protected from beach erosion, due to a recently completed beach re-nourishment project.
