Evening Standard - West End Final Extra - ES Homes and Property - - News -

JUST months af­ter splash­ing out £65 mil­lion on a man­sion in Bel-Air in LA, Bey­oncé and Jay-Z have bought a £19.2 mil­lion home in The Hamp­tons.

Their new re­treat, above, on a twoacre site, in­cludes a 12,000sq ft main house and a 1,800sq ft guest cot­tage.

The pop power cou­ple, above right, worth more than £740 mil­lion be­tween them, se­cured a lot of bang for their buck. There are seven bed­rooms and the seven bath­rooms fea­ture sculpted mar­ble from Verona in Italy. With more than 200ft of pond frontage and bor­der­ing a 17acre na­ture re­serve, the spread was first listed for sale at £29.2 mil­lion in 2009, slashed to £25.8 mil­lion the fol­low­ing year and then £22.1 mil­lion in 2012. With no tak­ers, sum­mer 2013 saw the price drop to £21.4 mil­lion. By spring last year it was up for sale again and Queen Bey and Jay-Z, who have three chil­dren, got a price they felt was fair. They plan to move their stuff in as soon as pos­si­ble.
