High above the Montauk moorlands, nestled amid the famed “Seven Sisters” houses, sits 139 Deforest Road, a stunning oceanview plot with endless opportunity. The property gives buyers the rare chance to fuse history with modern aesthetics in a highly coveted location on 4.23 acres of land. Originally conceptualized by real estate tycoon Arthur Benson, who owned most of Montauk during the 19th century, the Seven Sister homes were designed by famed architects McKim, Mead and White. The 100-acre compound, inhabited by a number of Benson’s friends and colleagues, was laid out by Frederick Law Olmsted, who is best known for designing Central Park.
Reminiscent of the surrounding historic estates, the proposed home is a contemporary take on 19th-century design elegance. With subdued gray stone accentuated by forest green woodwork and earth-toned bricks, the house features an abundance of windows, balconies and a spacious front porch – Permits are in place. A new Gunite swimming pool, pool house and garage are already built from the existing permit. All conveniently located in close proximity to Amsterdam Beach State Park, Ditch Plains Beach and other classic Montauk landmarks, giving residents plenty of opportunity to spend time outdoors and explore.
