A beautiful compound is owned by world renowned director and filmmaker Steven Spielberg.

Previously married to actress Amy Irving in 1985, the couple had one child, but divorced in 1989. Their divorce was recorded as being one of the most costly celebrity divorces, likely due to Spielberg's wild success and hugely profitable franchises. In 1991 Speilberg married again to another actress, Kate Capshaw, and together they had seven children. They are still married and split their time between their four properties, in New York, Naples, Los Angeles, and this Hampton home.
