Hugh Jackman, freezing dip in front of his designer house in the Hamptons

You need to be as invulnerable as Wolverine –character who plays in the saga X-Men– to happily resist the temperature of the Atlantic waters at this time. But Hugh Jackman (52), who does not miss any opportunity to keep in shape, jumped into the sea to practice a swim and run back to the design house that with his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, they have in one of the America’s most expensive zip codes.

The main one is finishing construction

The actor and his family live in the guesthouse, a redesigned 435 m2 log cabin that the studio has named Woodland Retreat.

Of the two, she is the one versed in design and most of the house in which they live obeys her criteria. In 2014 they bought two, a larger one that they are rebuilding, and the adjoining one as a guest house. The architecture studio Stelle Lomont Rouhani takes the commission and while the works of the main one are finished, they live in the guest room.

This is what you see, a redesigned 435 m2 log cabin that the studio has called Woodland Retreat. This is how Deborrah-Lee explained it in Vogue Living: “We traveled to Greece, Japan or Morocco, I was inspired by my surroundings, so I would return and go to the architect saying: ‘I have a great idea!’ and he was like, ‘Oh my God, here he goes again.’

The Jackmans have houses in Bondi Beach (Sydney) and in Manhattan but they love this one in East Hampton

The Jackmans have houses in Bondi Beach (Sydney) and Manhattan, but whenever possible, when the weather is fine, they go up to the East Hampton mansion, on the eastern tip of Long Island (New York). “As an actress, I always lived with a suitcase. Then I married an actor, so we live on the road. Even when the children were young and we were both filming, we lived from one place to another, ”Deborrah said. Scarlett Johansson, Steven Spielberg, Gwyneth Paltrow and Madonna, Sarah Jessica Parker and Calvin Klein, among other celebrities, have properties in the Hamptons.
