    If I were to build a house like this and/or spend upwards of $35 million on it, I guarantee that it would not be positioned right next to the main road that runs the length of the island. A house of this magnitude should have privacy and serenity as two primary features. But, I guess making sure everyone who drives down the highway can see your house has its value, to some people.

      That’s everything that needs to be said, my thoughts exactly.

    Yeah, the location doesn’t look all that wondrous. Home ain’t bad, and that back yard is incredible.

    Cool layout. The exterior is very stately, but not necessarily overwhelming. I think they could loose some two story columns and still get the same effect. I don’t like it when mansions resemble the White House, but that’s just my tastes. The grounds are certainly impressive.

    Being built in 1991, perhaps the highway wasn’t quite so massive when they picked the location. Still, it’s a tragedy that it’s so close to a very busy road. Otherwise, it looks like it has some potential. Like Grrrowler said, maybe someone out there gets off being so visible in such a large estate. But even the most attention starved individual would expect some level of privacy. At the very least, I don’t think someone in this tax bracket would appreciate the road noise.

    Everyone’s said everything I was going to say, it is a shame its so close to the main road, not only that, but it looks like its in the middle of nowhere, this would certainly draw attention to it. I can imagine close up it would look quite ghastly, there doesn’t seem to be any apparent architecture theme either, it looks like a mesh of styles.

    I was in this house years ago when it was the Hampton’s Decorator Show House . The new owners , Vincent and Louise Camuto, paid $35mill , then put millions into exterior and interior renovations ! He was one of the Founders of Nine West Shoes .

    I dont think I ever heard anyone describe Water Mill Long Island, one of the most expensive towns in the Hamptons corridor as being in the middle of nowhere? Also the home was not built in 1991, but at the turn of the twentieth century. It was built when Montauk Highway was a dirt path. Can’t change the location, but why would you? It has a show stopper location at the entrance to the village of Water Mill and is far back behind a tall masonry wall. The expansive rear yard and waterfront location is all the privacy one could desire. Someone mentioned a former designer showcase held there and it was at that time that the former owners, a convent or novitiate tried to sell the home. It appears to have found sympathetic buyers who are lavishing money on its restoration. The alternatives could have been much worse including demolition. Hopefully they do the home justice. The property is historic and a very beautiful home.

    The waterfront location could be better. It looks like it mostly abuts the river and then opens to a small bay. I wonder how clean the water is for swimming being so close to the river.

      This is not an industrial zone, but rather a first class resort area and it has some of the cleanest water found on the east coast. The bay is lined with multi-million dollar summer homes and the head waters of the so called “river” are from a spring fed pond and are clean.
