When it comes to the most pricy locations in the world, you will be hard pushed to find a more exclusive position than the Hamptons. It seems that every New York banker not to mention broker has a weekend place in this highly sought after setting. Consisting of small hamlets which officially form part of Long Island, New York, it has long been an aspirational place to have a property.
Considered to be one of the ritziest addresses in North America, you will find a large array of incredible pads in the Hamptons. Some of the main streets that offer more billionaires per square foot than anywhere else are around Meadow Lane in the town of Southampton.
Extending for more than three miles, this large stretch of road boasts a private helipad which can take busy residents to downtown Manhattan in less than half an hour. If you really are in need for speed then this is the ideal solution to get to work.
In addition to this, you really do need a serious amount of cash if you want to reside in the Hamptons. In 2013, the average cost of a property here was in the range of $20 million. However for the price you do have complimentary beach access, while a parking spot will set you back around $50 daily.
It is here where the rich and the famous come out to play including several businessmen involved in private equity firms. In fact you may have to fork out southwards of $70 million which does not even guarantee an ocean view. Meanwhile some places such as the expansive Wooldon Manor have already been snapped up for a cool $48 million.
