Tennis great John McEnroe selling off his Hamptons estate #HNNShowbiz

John McEnroe Hamptons Estate

SELLERS: John McEnroe and Patty Smyth
LOCATION: Southampton, NY
PRICE: $14,500,000
SIZE: (approx.) 7,500 square feet, 8 bedrooms 7.5 bathrooms

With the summertime selling season in full swing, tantrum tossing professional tennis icon John McEnroe and Patty Smyth — she fronted the early 1980s band Scandal — volleyed their long-time estate in a prestigious pocket of the hoity-toity seaside town of Southampton, NY, on the open market at $14.5 million. The couple, married in 1998 with half of a dozen kids between them — two together and four from previous marriages, acquired the plummy property in May 1999 for $4.2 million.

The mansard-roofed sprawler spans about 7,500-square-feet with open concept living areas that for the most part aren’t represented in listing photographs but are said in listing descriptions to consist of a sunny living room with vaulted ceiling and fireplace, several formal and informal dining spaces, a library, office, den, and a “splendid sunroom.” The residence’s 8 bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms are sprinkled throughout the multi-winged house to maximize quiet and privacy.
