Where in the world is Luann de Lesseps? Given the fact that The Real Housewives of New York City singer has three homes (and that she’s perpetually on tour!) one can never really know — there’s her Manhattan apartment, her upstate New York abode, and the stunning home in the Hamptons.
But as you might recall, it was that last property that brought on some family friction. Recap: Luanne wanted to sell the Sag Harbor four-bedroom home and move on from the Hamptons, but her children felt otherwise, and the disagreement resulted in a minor legal issue.
“Oh yeah, my kids basically didn’t want to leave the Hamptons,” Luann told Home & Design recently. “I was ready to make a change. I understand they didn’t want to leave. I had to, obviously, reconsider what was happening and the kids are thrilled that we still have our home in the Hamptons.”
Luckily, Luann was able to work out a scenario where she could keep the Hamptons manse and take on a $1 million waterfront refuge in the Hudson Valley. “I get to have my little bird’s nest upstate that I have my privacy in and that gives me pleasure,” Luann explained.
“I love to hike, I love to ski, so upstate is really a place that I feel really comfortable and very private as opposed to the Hamptons," she said, adding, "Upstate is more chill, as opposed to the Hamptons, which is more sought-after."
Sounds like Luann has the best of both worlds... make that the best of all three worlds — city, beach, and mountains!
