Location: Montauk, N.Y.
Price: $450,000 per summer
The Skinny: It's not often that we decide to feature a rental as House of the Day, but Curbed Hamptons dug up a beachside pad in Montauk that was too good to pass up. First, the price is astronomical: $175K if you'd just like it for August and $450K for the whole summer. Second, we're suckers for "out there" architecture that actually works. The bold colors and unconventional layout might not be something to buy into, but for a summer rental we say the bolder the better. The 10,000 square feet of living space—designed by eerie-sounding Pentagram Architects—is split between a two-bedroom main house and two-bedroom pavilion for guests. Walls of glass, an infinity pool, a space-age screening room, and four acres of beachfront round out the package.
