A stunning East Hampton Beach mansion that’s served as the Clintons’ regular summer home has come on the market for a whopping $32.5 million, the Daily News has learned. Bill and Hillary Clinton spent two summers at the historic property, at 211 Lily Pond Ln., in both 2011 and 2012 before a reported dispute over a security deposit led them to look elsewhere. They were at the property for Hurricane Irene and for the former president’s 66th birthday.
The stunning eight-bedroom, 9.5-bathroom home, which is owned by real estate mogul Elie Hirschfeld, is listed by Rebekah Baker and Edward Petrie of Sotheby’s International Realty.
The brokers declined to comment on the listing.

(SOTHEBY'S INTERNATIONAL REALTY) The landmarked home, designed and built by John Custis Lawrence in 1920, was renovated in 2002 and has a game room, a formal dining room, a library, six fireplaces and a heated pool. There’s even a path leading directly down to the beach.
Bill Clinton reorganized the library by subject matter during his first stay at the property, much to Hirschfeld’s surprise, and worked in the dining room on his book, "Back to Work." Hillary, who was then Secretary of State, took over the study.
Hirschfeld, who recently remarried, said he was selling the property so that he and his new wife, Sarah Schlesinger, could find a new place to design together.

The property certainly has a top notch location. Lily Pond Lane is well-known address for its celebrity homeowners, who have included Steven Spielberg, Martha Stewart and Jon Bon Jovi.
But the Clintons have recently moved on to a new Hamptons rental, a $50,000 a week home owned by Republican art collector Andre Nasser at 44 Broadview Road — a hidden cul-de-sac in Amagansett.
