Alec Baldwin is Selling his Hamptons Farmhouse for $29M
Alec Baldwin has listed his massive farmhouse in Amagansett, NY, for a jaw-dropping $29 million. For today’s blog, exclusive to our TTP members, we will be talking more about the “30 Roc” actor and his enormous Hamptons Farmhouse that is now on sale in the market. Now without further adieu, let’s get into the blog.
According to the New York Post, this is where the actor and his family spent most of their time during the COVID-19 pandemic. Alec Baldwin is parting ways with the place in order to look for a home with more space for his growing family. His wife, Hilaria, just gave birth to the couple’s seventh child on Sept. 22. The Hamptons property quickly became one of the most popular listings on Realtor.com®, as the curious clicked on the award-winning star’s vacation retreat.
With its custom-built, 625-foot pool and spa, gorgeous wood paneling, and covered porches and balconies, this luxury home is sure to be the crown jewel of your next estate sale.
Baldwin bought the 10-acre property with a 10,000-square-foot, four-bedroom farmhouse in 1996, paying just $1.75 million. The luxury home features covered porches and two upper-level balconies. Amenities include a home theater, wine room, and wood-paneled library. No interior photos were available but the listing notes that “Every detail of this impeccable two story cedar shingle retreat has been curated to maximize indoor/outdoor space and utilize natural light throughout the year.”
Out back there’s a custom, 625-foot pavilion with a fieldstone fireplace and fenced vegetable garden. And there are approved plans to expand the home by 1,200 square feet with a second story study bedroom suite and covered balcony.
Over the summer the Baldwins reportedly sold their lake house in upstate New York. They also own a Greenwich Village penthouse, which, according to The Post, they’ve been trying to sell privately since 2020. Earlier this year, they bought an antique farmhouse in Arlington, VT, for $1.75 million. The purchase came in the aftermath of the accidental shooting death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins during the filming of “Rust.” Baldwin, a star and producer of the movie, was recently named as a “possible defendant” in the fatal shooting case, which involved a prop gun that contained a live round.
The couple is currently moving into their new home on Vermont’s North Hero Island after purchasing it through a private sale from an elderly couple who moved away from Vermont years ago. They have been renting out their old home since buying it five years ago for $3 million at an auction house owned by Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner.

He then appeared as a struggling writer who falls under the spell of a charismatic cult leader in 1992’s The Crying Game.
Baldwin shifted towards character acting, beginning with Pearl Harbor in 2001. He played Lt. Col. James Doolittle in the film. With a worldwide box office of $449,220,945, this film remains the highest-grossing film Baldwin has appeared in during his acting career.

He appeared in Martin Scorsese’s The Aviator (2004) and The Departed (2006). In 2006, he starred in the film Mini’s First Time. He performed opposite Sarah Michelle Gellar in Suburban Girl (2007). Two years later, he co-starred in the hit romantic comedy It’s Complicated with Meryl Streep and Steve Martin.
Baldwin directed and starred in The Devil and Daniel Webster with Anthony Hopkins, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Dan Aykroyd in 2001. The then-unreleased film became an asset in a federal bank fraud trial when investor Jed Barron was convicted of bank fraud while the movie was in production. The film was eventually acquired by The Yari Group without Baldwin’s involvement.
Baldwin has been a longtime supporter of the arts, including theater, music, and film. He has been involved in almost every aspect of his craft, from writing to directing to starring roles. Baldwin’s career began on Broadway at age 11, but it wasn’t until he hit Hollywood that his star began to rise.
In 2007, the Yari Film Group announced that it would give the film, now titled Shortcut to Happiness, a theatrical release in the spring, and cable film network Starz! announced that it had acquired pay TV rights for the film. Shortcut to Happiness was finally released in 2008. Baldwin, displeased with the way the film had been cut in post-production, demanded that his directorial credit be changed to the pseudonym “Harry Kirkpatrick”.
Baldwin is one of the most philanthropic celebrities in the world. He has created a foundation to fund cancer research, and he is an avid supporter of breast cancer awareness. His foundation has donated over $14 million to breast cancer research and programs. Baldwin also created the Carol M. Baldwin Breast Care Center at Stony Brook University Hospital in honor of his mother.

In recent years, his foundation has donated bookstore gift certificates to Long Island libraries to support literacy programs.
Baldwin and Basinger’s divorce was one of the most high-profile and expensive in history. The couple met on the set of The Marrying Man in 1990 and married in 1993. They had a daughter, Ireland Baldwin (born October 23, 1995). They separated on December 5, 2000, and divorced on September 3, 2002. In May 1990, Baldwin met actress Kim Basinger when they played lovers in the film The Marrying Man. They married on August 19, 1993, and had a daughter, Ireland (born October 23, 1995).
They separated on December 5, 2000, and divorced on September 3, 2002. Baldwin has called the attorneys in the case “opportunists”, and has characterized Basinger’s psychologists as part of the “divorce industry”. He has faulted them more than Basinger and writes, “In fact, I blame my ex-wife least of all for what has transpired. She is a person, like many of us, doing the best she can with what she has. She is a litigant, and therefore, one who walks into a courtroom and is never offered anything other than what is served there.
Baldwin wrote that he spent over a million dollars, had to put time aside from his career, had to travel extensively, and needed to find a house in California (he lived in New York), so that he could stay in his daughter’s life.
Baldwin contended that after seven years of these issues, he hit a breaking point and, on April 11, 2007, left an angry voicemail message in response to another unanswered arranged call, in which Baldwin called his 11-year-old daughter a “rude, thoughtless little pig”. He contends that the tape was sold to TMZ, which released the recording, despite laws against publishing media related to a minor without the permission of both parents. Baldwin admitted that he made a mistake but asked not to be judged as a parent based on a bad moment. He later admitted to Playboy in June 2009 that he contemplated suicide over the voicemail that leaked to the public. Of the incident, he said, “I spoke to a lot of professionals, who helped me. If I committed suicide, [Kim Basinger] would have considered that a victory. Destroying me was their avowed goal.”
Now, Baldwin is married to author and wellness expert Hilaria Thomas Baldwin. They have six children: Carmen, Rafael, Leonardo, Romeo, Eduardo, and Lucia, as well as his eldest, Ireland Baldwin. Hilaria and Alec oversee The Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation, which focuses on funding the arts.
