Jay-Z and Beyonce rent Bridgehampton's Sandcastle
Power couple Jay-Z and Beyonce are renting the gated, 31,000-square-foot Bridgehampton mansion known as Sandcastle, a source tells Newsday.
They are paying $400,000 to live in the 12-bedroom, 12-bath newly constructed home for the month of August, the source says.
Jay-Z and Beyonce, along with daughter Blue Ivy, will have access to a bowling alley, skateboarding half-pipe, planetarium-style home theater, rock-climbing wall, virtual golf, media room, bar and disco, children’s performing area, and a court that has moving walls and a retractable hoop for playing squash, racquetball and basketball.
The landlocked 11.5-acre spread has a baseball diamond, heated pool, spa, sunken tennis court and outdoor kitchen.
The property first broke Hamptons records in 2010 when a family paid $500,000 to rent the house for two weeks.
