    Seven Sisters - Ocean Views

    High above the Montauk Moorlands, this spectacular 4.5 acre ocean view property offers unprecedented opportunity to build a new home surrounded by the iconic 19th Century dwellings known as the 'Seven Sisters.' Real estate developer Arthur Benson, who at the time owned most of Montauk, hired legendary architects McKim, Mead and White to create a private enclave as a hunting and fishing retreat for his friends. The first structure of the Montauk Association was constructed on this site in 1881, a clubhouse and social hall soon to be linked by footpath to the seven landmark shingle-style residences of this storied compound. The site plan for the 100-acre private association was masterfully designed by Frederick Law Olmstead, perhaps best known for New York City's Central Park. In 1889 the association dissolved and the clubhouse was sold as a private residence destroyed in a 1933 fire. Later, the original foundation was buried and a small home was built on the property that still remains. Today, the current owner has done the legwork for future development. The clubhouse foundation was excavated in order to piece together the original design. The venerable architect Robert A.M. Stern was then commissioned to design a 21st Century residence that embodied the original structure and rich legacy of the site. ARB approvals in place - see renderings and floorplans. A new pool, pool house and 3 -car been built and await the new main house to be built. This world-class coastal location offers a colorful history, home to titans of industry, media and the arts, now a part of the Montauk Association Historic District listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
