We knew last December something was up when Jason Kidd bought this $5 plus million place in Water Mill, the Hamptons. He already had his Azure penthouse on the market. Then we learn last week that Kidd said adios to the Mavericks, ola to the New York Knicks. Sure enough, he had New York City in mind when our hot former point guard picked up 100 Flying Point Road in (Water Mill) Southampton, the same spread Jennifer Lopez was perusing. It’s a classic Hampton’s clapboard six-bedroom, six-bathroom home at 5500 square feet. You can even hear the surf! Listed at $5.975 million, which is not bad for the Hamptons, the home is a custom build job with contemporary interiors designed around clean lines and European fixtures. Jason has plenty of room for the help in the 2,300-square-foot, finished basement, which includes a staff suite! The two acre property includes a pool, pool house, tennis court and carriage house that can be used as a two-car garage with space above for a gym, office or playroom. Going to be very handy for the new baby to grow up in. And it’s “a bike ride” away from the ocean, which Jason probably wishes he’d been riding early Sunday morning when he was arrested for driving while intoxicated in his Cadillac Escalade. From the Southampton Patch:
“Kidd, 39, was arraigned on a misdemeanor DWI charge on Sunday morning in Southampton Town Justice Court and released on his own recognizance.
Sag Harbor attorney Eddie Burke Jr. said he was on his way to speak with Kidd. “We await further discovery from the district attorney’s office,” Burke said.”
Burke is a high-profile DWI attorney, sort of the Knox Fitzpatrick of Manhattan’s second home playground.
By the way, anyone want to help me start a driving service for high profile peeps who want to go out and drink at night?
2108 at the Azure is the place Kidd still calls home – ”police said his address is still listed as Dallas, Texas”, even though the listing for $1,595,000 is expired.
