A former convent in the Hamptons that was transformed into a private residence by the late shoe designer Vince Camuto is hitting the market at $72 million. Listed as “Villa Maria,” this glorious waterfront mansion is currently the most expensive home for sale in the Hamptons. Circa 1910 estate is on 15 acres on Mecox Bay and the four-story residence’s 20,000-square-foot interior comprises 11 bedrooms, including six master suites, and 12-and-a-half bathrooms, plus an all-weather tennis court, a pool with two pavillions, ornamental gardens, and 1,100 square feet of waterfront.
A separate gatehouse contains two bedrooms and three baths for staff or guests.
“Molded and inspired by the array of quality and taste of a time that has long passed, Villa Maria epitomizes the splendor of an estate that cannot be duplicated and would be likely unattainable today,” says Cody Vichinsky, who has the listing with Zach Vichinsky, both cofounders of Bespoke Real Estate.
