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.
