As we fantasize about spending the last days of summer lounging by the pool in the Hamptons, the home Gods have bestowed upon us a beautiful house to dream about — and it just so happens to belong to one of our favorite chefs, Rachael Ray.
The daytime talk show host and culinary tycoon has just listed her three-bedroom, five-bath property in Southampton, New York for $4.9 million.
Set on a sprawling 6.1 acres of lush green grass and trees, the single-story home is the epitome of Hamptons sophistication and luxury.
Tons of natural light beams in through the large windows throughout. The home is crisp with white paint and design elements. The living room, which looks out onto the sparkling pool, features tall ceilings and recessed lighting.
And, of course, there’s not one but two kitchens on the property. The one inside the main home is chef’s quality, featuring stainless steel appliances, lots of cabinet space and an island complete with a wine rack.
There’s also a smaller kitchenette in the four-room pool house featuring a sink, microwave, dishwasher and wine refrigerator.
When you’re done making food, you can enjoy it in the sun-drenched dining room that features a skylight and views of the gorgeous backyard.
Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, including the luxurious master suite which comes with its own sleek soaking tub.
The property is just begging for guests to be entertained, with its oversized gunite pool and spacious blue stone patio complete with a pergola. Besides the separate pool house, there’s also a third, one-room structure that could be used as a home office, artist’s studio or home gym.
