The Beachfront Home from 'Something's Gotta Give' Just Sold for $41 Million
If you’ve ever seen a Nancy Meyers-directed movie — her credits include It’s Complicated and The Parent Trap — then you’ve probably fantasized about living in one of those beautiful houses (that practically have starring roles in her films). Well, you could turn that fantasy into a reality with just $41 million! That’s the price paid by the newest resident of 576 Meadow Lane in Southampton, New York — better known as the beach house where Jack Nicholson fell for Diane Keaton in 2003’s Something’s Gotta Give.
The New York Daily News reports that the buyer of the 11-bedroom mansion is Jimmy Tisch, CEO of Loews Corporation, who purchased the property in an “off-market” deal. The 8,000-square-foot dwelling was built by the previous owner, Mediabistro.com CEO Alan Meckler, who began construction shortly after purchasing the oceanfront property for $5.5 million in 1999. Nicknamed “Billionaires Lane,” the beachside road in the tony Hamptons neighborhood is populated almost exclusively by titans of industry — in the movie, it’s a playwright (played by Diane Keaton) who lives at that address.
The Hollywood-perfect homes in Meyers’ romantic comedies, which also The Holiday and What Women Want, have always been a part of their appeal. The Something’s Gotta Give house became a particular object of fascination for film and design obsessives, inspiring articles in Architectural Digestand Elle Décor.
