The Artistic Hub of the Hamptons

Water Mill

Its 300-year history includes the first water mill in the state, but Water Mill is more than just historic charm. It is a bustling community with a vibrant arts scene and has beautiful beaches dotted with sprawling, multimillion-dollar estates.

What to Expect

Historic hamlet with vibrant arts community

Water Mill is a small hamlet in comparison to neighboring Southampton and Bridgehampton, but its historic charm and quiet feel have drawn wealthy homeowners to it. It is a mixture of waterfront, farm fields and woodlands with sustainable agriculture still thriving in a community where visual and performing arts are celebrated at places like the Watermill Center, started by avant-garde opera designer and director Robert Wilson.

From traditional mansions to modern waterfront abodes

Homes in Water Mill have been selling for seven and eight figures with hedge funders and celebrities discovering it as an alternative to the busier Southampton and Bridgehampton. Celebrity residents include talk show host Kelly Ripa and her husband, actor Mark Consuelos, who own a mansion in a wooded area of the hamlet. Also, the late shoe designer Vince Camuto restored a Gatsby-era waterfront landmark in this hamlet, which was recently listed for $72 million.
