Two-and-a-half acres and 250 feet of beachfront? Yes, please.

In the swanky Hamptons, celeb-owned fashionable retreats are pretty much par for the course. But a fashionable retreat owned by a successful fashion designer that happens to occupy a private oceanfront enclave in Sagaponack? There’s only one of those, and it’s looking for a new owner.

Built in 1998 for designer Elie Tahari, the three-bedroom light-filled estate is an absolute dream with soaring ceilings and sweeping ocean vistas. It’s also one of the Hamptons’ most expensive homes currently on the market, coming in at a whopping $44,995,000.

But all that extra change certainly gets you a one-of-a-kind escape. The core of the home is a century-old restored barn with gorgeous vaulted and beamed ceilings. Its wide open plan houses a living room, family room, kitchen, and dining area. A wall of glass at one end invites in endless sunshine, while a pair of glass doors rolls up garage-style to create a seamless pathway from the ocean to the 60-foot heated Gunite pool on the opposite side of the home.

Upstairs, the master bedroom is a serene sanctuary with a large private deck overlooking the sea and your own private beach. (Swoon!)

But if all the style and seaside bliss haven’t sold you, there are also approved plans for an expansion in place that would yield an additional five bedrooms along with entertaining and spa facilities. Which all sounds lovely, for sure—but truthfully, we’re ready to move in either way.

If you are, too, the home is listed with Sotheby’s International Realty and represented by brokers Ann Ciardullo and Keith Green. Scroll on for more photos of this blissful retreat:
