Acclaimed actress and beloved TV host Drew Barrymore has recently listed her idyllic Hamptons retreat on the market for $8.45 million. Originally built in the 1920s, this charming abode has undergone a complete transformation, seamlessly blending rustic allure with luxury amenities. Located in the coveted Sagaponack area, the property spans an impressive 1.7 acres, situated less than a mile from Town Line Beach on the Atlantic Ocean.

The main home, originally a potato barn, includes six bedrooms and five full bathrooms, maintaining its original charm with exposed wooden beams, terracotta tiles, and a wealth of distinctive details. A spacious main living room, grounded by a romantic fireplace, exemplifies the home’s rustic-chic aesthetic.
