The famous actress known for the films Charlie's Angels, 50 First Dates or Never Been Kissed, Drew Barrymore, is enjoying tranquil moments at her magical residence in Sagaponack, Long Island. Accept our invitation and come and see how well she did in furnishing the interior and what she's especially proud of.
Love at first sight
It might come to you as a surprise that Drew Barrymore isn't into flashy grandiose modern fads and doesn't display any signs of star temperament. Instead, she prefers things of a more modest nature with a long history. Things that have their own story to tell. The house on the largest island of Long Island belongs to places that are sought-after by famous celebrities. It meets the criteria of luxury living to the fullest. The building dates back to 1920 and has retained its distinctive character, although both the interior and exterior have undergone a modern renovation. At first glance, it may look to you like a cute gingerbread house from the fictitious "Hansel and Gretel" story, only without the fragrant honey gingerbread.
"I fell in love with this old homestead and its history at first sight. I came to see the house with my own eyes and then everything just fell into place,"
says Drew Barrymore.
What secret does the mansion hide?
The entire luxury homestead is decorated mainly in white, with wooden elements dominating the interior. It features wooden trusses, wooden floors and various decorative objects that help preserve the original charm of the house. The two-storey house has six bedrooms and a total of 6 bathrooms. On the ground floor, there's a living room with a brick fireplace, which leads to a spacious open modern kitchen. If the owner wants to enjoy some peaceful moments, she can take refugee in the library or the beautiful study. The property includes a heated swimming pool, a garden or the forests and meadows that surround it, but you'll also find tennis courts nearby. The only thing missing to make this idyll absolutely perfect is whispering sea, right? Surprise! Coincidentally, a breathtaking beach is located less than a kilometer away from Drew's house. The actress and her family love the sea, which is one of the reasons why they chose this location.
The actress didn't hesitate to withdraw 5.52 million USD from her bank account to purchase this house - the equivalent of 140 million crowns!
