Best-Selling Author Steven Gaines Asks $3M for Hamptons Home

New York Times Bestselling author Steven Gaines just listed his house in the Hamptons for $2.95 million. This is more than a house, however. It is an environment where creative genius flowed abundantly allowing Gaines’ to write "Philistines at the Hedgerow" in 1998, "The Sky's the Limit" in 2005, and many more of his praised works.

The mid-century Wainscott home is now on the market for the first time since the author has owned it. The four bedroom, three-and-a-half bath pad where Gaines wrote his literary masterpieces boasts 3,200 square-feet and sits on an acre of land.

Along with soaring high ceilings, the house has unique spaces at every turn. A 70-foot main room offers window walls and big glass sliding doors that lead out to the pool area. Further in the house, a renovated all-glass greenhouse is home to a sunken spa tub.

Seeing the house, it’s easy to understand how Gaines felt inspired—and with the most popular beach in the Hamptons less than a mile away, it wasn’t all work and no play.

11 Westwood Road is also the former home of Bill Higgins, owner of the well-known 1970s disco club The Swamp. 

Gaines is currently on a book tour promoting his highly personal memoir, "One of These Things First." Bonny Aarons of Douglas Elliman has the listing.
