It’s Free to Look Hamptons: 66 Seafield Lane, Westhampton Beach

There are some things money can't buy. Such as the Lincoln Memorial. But for $29 million, this property does that D.C. clunker one better.

Over 100 years old, the house was built—we're not making this up—for a coal baron by architect Henry Bacon, who also designed the Lincoln Memorial. There are fewer marble pillars and statues of dead presidents in this Westhampton Beach mansion, but it's still pretty impressive. Sitting on 10.37 acres, with 16,000 square feet on three floors, it's a "historic treasure," according to the Brown Harris Stevens listing.

There's no doubt this property is old. It's been "meticulously maintained," with "restored original millwork," an "original" poolside carriage house" and "hand-painted" murals. When you're among "century-old" grape vines and "century-old" catalpa trees, the 21st century, in all its ephemera, will seem very far in the future. — William Alden
