Hugh Jackman, known for his role as Wolverine, and his family will be filming "Deadpool 3" in Vancouver for the next few months, including the summer. As a result, they will not be using their luxurious modernist compound in East Hampton, situated on Gardiner's Bay with a private sandy beach. The property is available for rent at a premium cost to a well-to-do individual or family.
This summer, an opportunity for luxury awaits as the Jackman family's East Hampton compound becomes available for rent. However, the cost for a Memorial Day to Labor Day rental is steep at $500,000. If that price is within reach and you are interested, contact Susan Breitenbach at Corcoran or Martha Gundersen and Paul Brennan at Douglas Elliman. The property is expected to be in high demand despite its high price tag.
In 2015, Hugh Jackman and his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, purchased two waterfront properties for $7.5 million. The existing homes were demolished, and renowned modernist architect, Stelle Lomont Rouhani, was commissioned to design new, contemporary residences. The compound, spanning 2.5 acres, features a larger main house and a smaller guest house, both designed with a minimalistic aesthetic and high-end amenities to maximize the stunning bay views. The compound includes a total of five bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms.
The main house, with its minimalist design, offers three bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. The gourmet kitchen is equipped with high-end Gaggenau appliances, and the informal dining area boasts a hand-carved solid bleached walnut dining table, custom-made by Field & Co. The floor-to-ceiling glass doors allow for ample natural light and unobstructed views.
The guest house, designed with two bedrooms, boasts an open living space with a high-end kitchen, a step-down living room with lounge-style seating, and a lofted area for sleeping and lounging. One of the bedrooms overlooks the pool and spa and offers a breathtaking 180-degree view of the bay.
The secluded and tranquil surroundings, as well as the peaceful bay waters, have attracted many high-profile individuals seeking peace and quiet over the years. While Puff Daddy, or whatever he goes by currently, has not been spotted in the area recently, his all-white residence is located nearby, as is the home of renowned fashion designer Donna Karan.
Currently performing in the Broadway revival of "The Music Man," Hugh Jackman has also made notable real estate moves in Manhattan. Last summer, he listed his impressive triplex in the West Village for $38.9 million, which is still available at that price. In the fall, he purchased a four-bedroom penthouse in West Chelsea for more than $21 million.
