Anyone who has spent literally thousands of hours of trawling the internet for cool shit (me) becomes pretty desensitised to ridiculously large, over the top homes. Occasionally though you stumble upon a house that legitimately takes things to the next level.
Presenting 'The Sandcastle' in Bridgehampton, New York. The property sits on 12 acres with the three-story (served by an elevator, of course) main house covering a massive 17,000 square feet, and comes replete with 10 bedrooms, 15 bathrooms, and almost every form of entertainment conceivable. Some of the more unique amenities include a professional standard bowling alley, rock climbing wall, skateboard halfpipe, performing arts theatre, convertible basketball/squash court, and a full sized baseball field.
The good folks at Architectural Digest were recently given a house tour by the owner/builder which you can enjoy below. Not over the top at all...
'The Sandcastle' is for sale through Bespoke Real Estate for US$39,995,000 (AU~$57,000,000), or for rent at about US$1,000,000 a month (which there is apparently huge demand for).
