Inside the Celebrity Summer Homes We Could Never Afford

Hollywood may be the hotbed for entertainment, but many celebrities prefer to spend their summers on the east coast.

Dottie Herman of Douglas Elliman Real Estate showed ET Susan Lucci's estate that's worth nearly $20 million.

The veteran actress is now selling the Hamptons home she built from scratch. The property includes seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms and sits on 1.4 acres of beachfront land.

"From every room in this home you can see the ocean," Dottie told ET. "It's probably a little under 11,000 square feet."

Quiet neighbors are an added bonus, as Katie Holmes knows. The actress rented a place nearby to lay low after her divorce from Tom Cruise.

"Everyone respects your privacy," Dottie said.
