3 Luxurious Celebrity Homes You Can Rent

Long-time "Today Show" host Matt Lauer is asking $3.5 million for his charming Southampton waterfront cottage. The sale isn't a huge surprise - rumor has it the veteran anchor recently purchased Richard Gere's Hamptons estate for $36.5 million.

The 1,800-square-foot cottage Lauer hopes to sell has a modest 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The home sits on .75 acres, and offers 85 feet of bulkheaded waterfront to do a little sailing or just take in some nice views.

The sprawling sun-drenched deck outside the home has plenty of space for barbecues or catching some rays.

Inside, the home is decorated in a classic coastal style, with light hardwood floors, gorgeous exposed wood beams, white brick fireplace and white plantation shutters adorning the windows.

The bedrooms are a perfect place to relax at the end of a beach day, and have light carpets and charming built-ins. The bathrooms, continuing the seaside trend throughout the house, have a clean look to them, with one featuring subway tiles and beadboard bathtub paneling, and the other with a marble countertop and a half wall with beadboard paneling.

The listing agent is Susan Breitenbach of Corcoran Group Real Estate. The story was first featured in Variety.
