The veteran actress is now selling the Hamptons home she built from scratch. The property includes seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms and sits on 1.4 acres of beach-front land.

"From every room in this home you can see the ocean," Herman told ET. "It's probably a little under 11,000 square feet."

Quiet neighbors are an added bonus, as Katie Holmes knows. The actress rented a place nearby to lay low after her divorce from Tom Cruise.

"Everyone respects your privacy," Herman said.
