Grab your jewel-tone coats and curly red wigs, because the imposing beachfront home from the HBO miniseries “The Undoing” is on Airbnb. 

Located on three acres of land in East Marion, New York, the six-bed, four-bath home was originally built as a coast guard life saving station in 1893. Now, the sprawling estate has been fully renovated and furnished with vintage furniture to maintain its classic farmhouse charm, all the while serving as one of the mysterious locations for everyone’s favorite love-to-hate show of the season. In the show, Nicole Kidman’s character Grace Fraser spends serious time at the estate, which belongs to her father, Franklin Reinhardt, portrayed by Donald Sutherland. 

While the home appears a bit ominous in the HBO series, the sprawling estate us actually warm and friendly thanks to its huge kitchen and dining room that are ideal for gathering with family and friends. A dining room table seats 14 guests, or just one of Donald Sutherland’s eyebrows. With six bedrooms spread through the home’s three levels, there’s plenty of space for a beach vacation with friends, or curling up in an oversized blanket like Nicole Kidman on one of the home’s four porches. (Hugh Grant not included.)

The home also features a fourth floor, the tower space, reachable by ladder, that could easily function as a seventh bedroom with views of the beautiful waterfront.

“Climb up the ladder from the third floor where you have a desk and workplace and crawl into a cozy single bed where you are greeted with panoramic views,” the listing reads. 

Outside, the home features 300 feet of private beach along the Long Island Sound, with a sprawling 50-foot swimming pool also available on site. There’s also a spacious yard with a jungle gym, ideal for children. No word on the outdoor fireplace that serves an important role in the series, however. 

Despite its presence on Airbnb, the home isn’t just a vacant estate meant for temporary rentals. The property’s owners use the home throughout the year, but are now permitting week-long stays from mid-June to mid-September.  

“The house has numerous little hideaways for when you need time alone to read a book or take a nap,” the listing reads. “The possibilities are endless.” Hopefully not to escape the city because you’re accused of murder like Hugh Grant’s character, of course. 

As for how much dough you’ll have to spring to sleep in the sprawling estate, it tends to fluctuate based on the dates. But if you plug in a specific stretch you can get a price estimate, which is around $1,000 per night. 

If you think the oceanfront estate looks a bit familiar, you’re right: The home didn’t just make its first star turn on “The Undoing.” Super spies may remember it from the “Beach House” episode of HBO’s “Girls.”
