    Jimmy Choo co-founder Tamara Mellon has just picked up some pricey closet space in Bridgehampton, New York. Mellon is now under contract for a brand-new $7,950,000 home on Highland Terrace street, according to the New York Post.

    The south-of-the-highway spread is 6,500-square-feet and features 7-bedrooms, 6 1/2-bathrooms and chic outdoor pool. Featuring a brand new floor plan, the first level of this house offers a great room and living room both warmed by fireplaces, an expansive eat-in kitchen as well as a guest master with access to the pool. Upstairs you’ll find the master wing, running the full depth of the house, with its own private balcony, as well as three additional guest suites all with baths and terraces. A finished lower level offers recreational areas, two additional bedrooms for staff or weekend overflow and rooms for wine cellar, sauna and a true home theater. Outside the property has both covered and uncovered porches with a convenient pool bath overlooking the heated Gunite pool and spa framed by generous lawn and plantings offering views of the 13-acre reserve and beyond.

    Mellon, who was once married to oil and banking heir Matthew Mellon, co-founded the glamourous Jimmy Choo shoe company in 2006. The company was bought by current owners Labelux in 2011. Mellon stepped down from the brand in November 2011.
