Hamptons houses that cost less than $1 million

Hamptons living isn’t strictly for the rich and famous. While Long Island’s East End is known for having some of the country’s most lavish and expensive houses, there are homes available at more affordable prices. Here are 10 Hamptons houses on the market for less than $1 million.
