Price of Hamptons house where Kevin Durant hosted suitors going for $15 million
Kevin Durant rented a house in East Hampton, New York in 2016 when he was hunting for a new team. The house is now for sale for $15 million.
As seen in Sothenby’s International Realty website, the five bedroom,7,400-square-foot estate is now for sale at $15 million. The house is located at 189 Further Lane East Hampton, NY 11937.
As reported by Malika Andrews and Mark Stein of the New York Times, as soon as Kevin Durant saw the house, he immediately knew it was the one. He paid $100,000 for a 10-day rental:
“As soon as Rich started walking towards the house, he was elbowing me,” Gallanti said, referring to Durant’s manager, Rich Kleiman. “He was like, ‘This is the house.’”
Six teams reportedly entered the Hamptons house to recruit Durant. The teams are Golden State Warriors, the San Antonio Spurs, the Miami Heat, the Los Angeles Clippers, the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Boston Celtics — who even brought Tom Brady with them.
The property is actually owned by Peter Wilson, a retired lawyer. Wilson is not a big NBA fan. He admitted that he didn’t have a good idea what was going on inside his home during those days. Yet in retrospect, he seems to have got a good grasp of the history that the walls of his house holds:
“It can become part of the lure as I try to sell my house,” he said.
