Shoe tycoon Vince Camuto and his former beauty queen wife have put their historic Southampton estate on the market.

Once the “most opulent home in the Hamptons,” Wooldon was once the epic summer estate of Jessie Woolworth Donahue, daughter of the Woolworth’s founder. The waterfront spread was so grand, in fact, that this 10,000-square-foot pile was actually built in 1930 as the pool house. The original main house was demolished in the early 1940s after the death of its then-owner, Merrill Lynch co-founder Edmund Lynch, but the pool house has survived as one of Southampton, N.Y.’s finest waterfront mansions. Now owned by shoe designer Vince Camuto, the man behind Nine West, the mansion and a parceled off 5.5 acres have been listed for $48M.
