Jason Kidd Packing Up for the Hamptons? New Kidd on a $5 Million Southampton Block!

Published December 2, 2011 by Candy Evans

Now we know why Jason Kidd listed 2108 at the Azure in October: he just bought a home at 100 Flying Point Road in Water Mill, Southampton! Though he plays for our WORLD CHAMPION Mavericks, the East Coast, which happens to be the home of his former team, the New Jersey Nets, lures. The New York Post reports that ink is barely dry on a contract the hot point guard just signed to buy a sprawling Hamptons mansion at 100 Flying Point Road in Southampton. Get this: it’s the same spread Jennifer Lopez was perusing. It’s a classic Hampton’s clapboard six-bedroom, six-bathroom home “a bike ride” away from the ocean, at 5500 suare feet. You can hear the surf! I am so jealous! Oh dear, we have to move that Azure condo: this puppy was listed at $5.975 million. It’s a custom build job with contemporary interiors designed around clean lines and European fixtures, much like what he had at The Azure, and a master with sitting area, cozy fireplace and balcony.Unlike Terrell Owens, who bought an entire Azure condo for his staff, Jason has plenty of room for the help in the 2,300-square-foot, finished basement. It includes a staff suite! A staff will be a total necessity for the two acre property which 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. And NYC is an easy two hour plus commute from Dallas. Jason, please invite us to the housewarming…
