Not everyone wants to spend weekends in the Hamptons, apparently.
Because despite the ample room for shoes, jewelry, kids and drama, a former Real Housewives star has listed her East Hampton home for $12 million.
It appears to be a model-perfect property, what with its 5,800-square-foot floor plan and 1.2 acres of landscaped grounds upon which to frolic.There's a pool, a pond, a sun-filled living room (well, not at night, probably), vaulted ceilings, a luxurious master suite...
So, who decided that this place doesn't mesh with her current lifestyle?
Kelly Bensimon is moving on out!
The divorced mother of two, who even wrote a book called In the Spirit of the Hamptons and was editor-at-large of Hamptons Magazine, lives mainly in Manhattan with her daughters. However, Bravo is refreshing The Real Housewives of New York City this year without Bensimon, Jill Zarin, Alex McCord and Cindy Barshop.
Bensimon's soon-to-be former Hamptons home on Further Lane was built in an American-traditional style and boasts five bedrooms and five bathrooms, along with a formal living room, fireplaces, plenty of room for entertaining, a modern kitchen with stainless-steel appliances and a terrace.
It's a hop, skip and a jump from Maidstone Country Club, the East Hampton Village museum and the ocean, according to Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate.
