It was an expensive summer for Beyoncé and Jay-Z.

Less than two months after the billion-dollar power couple purchased a 2-acre hillside estate in Los Angeles for $US88 million, they have scooped up a $US26 million Hamptons property, reports Trulia.

The 12,000 square-foot mansion is located in East Hampton, New York, and sits adjacent to Georgica Pond.

The Carters currently hold Forbes’ title of the highest-paid celebrity couple in the world, with a combined fortune of $US1.16 billion.

The entertainment moguls have famously been serial renters, only recently settling down as homeowners after the birth of their twins in June.

Below, take a peek inside Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s new Hamptons abode.

Designed by architect Stanford White and built a century ago, the home has been renovated and expanded over the years to incorporate new, modern amenities.

The property includes a detached, 1,800-square-foot guest cottage. There's also a 45-foot-long infinity pool and accompanying spa.

Elevated on a two-acre site with over 200 feet of waterfront on Georgica Pond, it's private and secluded. The previous owner reportedly rotated the original house 90-degrees to frame the views of the waterfront from the living room.

The 12,000-square-foot home has seven bedrooms and seven-and-a-half bathrooms -- plenty of space for the couple and their three children.

Custom design and hand-milled woodwork are visible throughout the house. The bathrooms are sculpted with marble from Verona, Italy, according to the listing.

The home boasts heated floors and numerous stone-carved fireplaces.

And a 4,000-square-foot basement has 10-foot ceilings, a laundry room, and a three-car garage.
