For NBA fans, this East Hampton, NY, home on the market will forever be known as the place that changed the face of the NBA. It’s the vacation getaway famously rented by NBA great Kevin Durant in 2016 for 10 days and $100,000. While summering in the Hamptons, the All-Star free agent listened to pitches from teams who wished to sign him.
He ultimately signed with the Golden State Warriors, in “a seismic decision for the league,” according to the New York Times
Per the Listing:
Designer’s own custom built 7400 sq ft estate on 3.2 gated acres of manicured lawns and gardens on prestigious Further Lane one block to the ocean beach. Premium design details with curved walnut entry doors, polished stone floors, ocean breeze screened porch, huge top of the line kitchen, luxurious master suite with sitting room, spa-like bath with soaking tub, oversized steam shower and private balcony. Four additional en-suite estate bedrooms, oceanview teak roof-top observation deck, full finished lower level with screening room and catering kitchen. Remarkable gardens surround the 55 ft. heated pool with waterfall, poolside cabana with gym, summer kitchen & changing room, private hot tub area, tennis court and three car garage. A perfect oasis to spend quality time with friends and family or entertain on a large scale.
This house clearly put the Warriors over the edge. Now it’ll always be known as the Hamptons Five house. What an annoying nickname. If the Warriors keep winning championships, they should turn it into a museum.
