If Beyoncé and Jay-Z are looking for an adult Black male to adopt, I’m happy to volunteer my services and be the best baby sitter, Popeye’s chicken getter, and resident B-Hive worshipper I can be. You know, for the month of August at least. According to Page Six, the Carter family will be having a magical time in a very, very expensive property in the Hamptons.
Want to remind yourself that you’re not in the top 1 percent?
Read on for more information about the 31,000-square-foot-home called “the Sandcastle” that they’re renting for $400,000:
The 11-acre property on Halsey Lane was built by Hamptons super-developer Joe Farrell. It’s currently on the market for $43.5 million.
The sprawling estate is fit for the king and queen of Hip-Hop, lavishly equipped with a two-lane bowling alley, virtual golf, skateboard half-pipe, a rock-climbing wall, a full bar and recording studio.
It also boasts a 60-foot heated pool with an underwater stereo system, a tennis court, a spa facility with gym and a combination squash, racquetball and basketball court with moving walls and retractable hoop — plus an eight-car garage.
In addition to a 2,800-square-foot master suite, the place includes a separate two-bedroom apartment. The estate also has what’s called a “children’s performing area,” according to the listing on Corcoran.com — perfect for baby Ivy.
After 18 months of construction, Farrell moved his own family into the house in 2009 but has since rented it out for a short time each summer at record-breaking prices. The Jonas Brothers were rumored to have been interested in it but settled on another Hamptons rental instead.
