I know a lot of people who bemoan the high cost of rent these days — me included — but $400,000 a month? That's ridiculous! Unless, of course, you happen to be superstars like Beyoncé and Jay-Z. That's the price they've reportedly paid for a 31,500-square-foot summer rental just outside of New York City. Below, a peek inside the 12-bedroom estate.

The home is in an extra-exclusive enclave of the Hamptons, called the Sandscastle. The 11-acre manicured grounds include a 60-foot pool and a tennis court.

The place has many luxurious amenities, including a half-pipe for skateboarding, movie theatre and rock climbing wall. But to me, the most over-the-top feature is this palatial dressing room. The size, level of detail and chandelier make it truly decadent.

Although baby Blue Ivy is too young to have friends in for sleepovers (let alone sleep in a real bed), this bunker room would be ideal for it. Maybe Beyoncé and Jay-Z will rent the place again when she's a little bit older.
