Beyoncé and Jay-Z have bought their second home in as many months following their search to find a suitable base for their growing family. The couple, who welcomed twins Rumi and Sir in June, have splashed out $26 million on a seven-bedroom, seven-and-a-half bathroom estate in the beachside community of East Hampton, New York, according to property website Trulia.

As you would expect their chosen estate is a sprawling and opulent home, measuring 12,000 square feet and located on a private two-acre site. The power couple also have direct water space on Georgica Pond, a 17-acre meadow preserve and a spacious two bedroom guest cottage - ideal for friends or family to come and visit.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z's new home was built 100 years ago but has been meticulously renovated to combine traditional craftmanship with state-of-the-art amenities, with lavish design details. The bathrooms have been sculpted with marble from Verona, Italy, while custom designed and hand-milled woodwork is visible throughout the house.
