A Fake Bookshelf Makes This Hamptons Estate

  • The listing for this North Sea home says it has “every amenity,” but it doesn’t mention what we think is the most important (and impressive) one—it has what looks like a hidden door made out of a bookshelf. If you want to fulfill your Masterpiece Mystery fantasies, the room that lies beyond the disguised doorway would be the perfect place to store a collection of ill-gotten gold. So you can pay for your $4.3 million home, of course.

    The house has seven bedrooms and is a whopping 8,300 square feet. It also has a pool, a tennis court and five fireplaces. Get familiar with the surrounding woods and they’ll provide the perfect place to evade capture by your rivals.
