Kelsey Grammer Selling $10M Home in Hamptons

kelsey grammerWhy is this couple smiling? They're about to go house hunting in the Hamptons. Actor Kelsey Grammer, pictured with new wife Kayte Walsh, a former stewardess pictured left, has been trying to sell mansions in ritzy communities across the country. The word is that Grammer's divorce from his third wife, Camille, a former Playboy model best known as the mean one on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, is causing him to liquidate his real estate holdings.

Grammer just unloaded his Bridgehampton, N.Y., home for the asking price of $9.995 million, which according to area Realtors, was priced to sell. He and wife no. 4 want to pick out a new pad to wile away the summer. His other properties still on the market: A Beaver Creek, Colo., ski home is listed at $7.9 million and his 7-bedroom Tudor mansion in Los Angeles, which has been on and off the market but is now listed at $18.9 million.

What did the buyer get in the Hamptons? A pretty sweet pad, that's what.


The 8,000-square-foot, 7-bedrooms, 7-bath home sits on a private lane in Bridgehampton on the South Fork of Long Island. The home was custom-built in the traditional wood-shingle Hamptons' style. It's set on 1.7 landscaped acres according to the Sotheby's listing. The neutral Search Homes for Sale See photos of homes for sale in your area and across the country on AOL Real Estate interior and white kitchen are fairly standard issue Hamptons fare but the lovely sunroom with its diamond-paned windows is the real jewel of the spaces.

The property also seems to have all the amenities a multimillion-dollar Hamptons home should have: heated pool with spa; a master bedroom with fireplace, sitting room and private porch; a guest house, tennis courts, home theater, gym, steam room, sauna, wine cellar and elevator.

The only thing it's lacking: ocean frontage. But what do you want for $10 million? Maybe wife no. 4 will get herself a waterfront property.

A local Bridgehampton Realtor puts the home in perspective: "From the pricing standpoint our strongest sales right now are floating between that $5 and $12 million range [for homes south of the highway]. That's a hot number for us right now, as hard as that is to believe, but it's the Hamptons."

Grammer's home has that desirable designation of being south of the highway (or "SOH" as it's put in listings). That means that it's south of busy Montauk Highway, the main artery connecting Manhattan to the


Kelsey Grammer's Million-Dollar Baby Hamptons and the road responsible for much of the area's notorious traffic congestion. The widest Long Island gets near Bridgehampton, running from the Atlantic Ocean north to the Peconic Bay is just seven miles so you're never very far from the ocean even if you're north of the highway.

Although $10 million may sound like a lot, the Realtor points out that last year the town of Sagaponack had the top-ranked price points in the country and Bridgehampton is shoulder to shoulder with it.

"It's not a number that is uncommon," she says. "It's a pretty normal price point in Bridgehampton, Sagaponack, Water Mill. From Southampton heading east to East Hampton your starting prices south of the highway for a significant house that needs work is going to be $4 million."

"It was listed to move but whether that's a good deal is relative; it's a lot of money."

This goes to show you that even B actors make a lot of money in television, no wonder even Dick Cavett came out of hiding to appear on talk shows to sell his book and make some more money now that money is so easy to be made if you are in any entertainment field. Of course, these are the children ages 12-18 that buy all this crap. It is time for parents to rain in their children and teach them something about the value of money, otherwise, we shall be having a generation of looser!

Why do these guys want to re-marry when they just paid thru the nose for the last one? Deminshing ones property holdings (selling property) NOT a good investment,,,unless one is the buyer.

Harper57: yes I also agree with you about the size and numbers of these homes all these stars seem to own? not that I begrudge them to spend their own money the way they want to spend it, just that I hate the hypocracy of it all...they are the first ones on the coat tails of Al Gore and his global warming snake oil sales job, and yet when you see all the huge mega homes all of them including old Al ***** own its just disgusting? they have a racket in which they are all set up to profit personally off the carbon foot print scheme that is going to cost all of us little taxpayers big time, yet they run around Hollywood and NYC moaning how the world is coming to an end all because of our lifestyles? I am sick of them and the more that is found out about their lie's the less you see and hear them spewing their nutty science?

I saw an interview with Kelsey Grammer and his last wife not long after they first married, (#3) and I could tell in that interview right away that Kelsey has some very bad control freak emotions to deal with? the wifey attempted to get a word in sideways to answer a question they were asked and Kelsey bit her head off right away for opening her mouth and preceeded to do all the talking. I could tell from the look of sadness on her face that their marriage would be heading for the rocks right then and there. you can tell when one spouse is a controlling, immature, bully. and Kelsey sure is just that. he wants what he wants, when he wants it, or he divorces you to get it someplace else??

I can guarantee Kelsey will divorce this new and pretty young woman as soon as he's tired of her!
After all, she's number 4! He'll be moving on to 5, 6, 7, and 8 down the road!
The worst part is that he has damaged his children for life! How sad for the innocent children.
