Envision land encompassing 20 private oceanfront acres offering both sunrises and sunsets. Next, imagine a dramatic cliff with a staircase down to a private shoreline stretching 900 feet along one of the most pristine soft, sandy beaches. Then, picture a compound anchored by a 7,000 +/- square foot Stanford White designed summer cottage with classic wrap around porch from where you can watch ships come and go past an iconic lighthouse. Dream of the beautiful pool that lies just out of sight down a winding path past flowering gardens under a canopy of shady trees. Conjure up an expansive pond, beautiful orchards, indigenous wildlife and miles of walking trails to enjoy it all. No, not the promo for some exotic vacation destination (or maybe it is). And not the location for the next Pirate movie (but it could be). Nor is it the secluded haunt of some mysterious mega-mogul (at least not currently). What is it exactly? Simply put, it is the most beautiful and compelling oceanfront property now available for sale in the Hamptons today. Cavett's Cove is located on the easternmost end of an enclave of seven homes designed by McKim, Mead & White and sited by Frederick Law Olmsted in the early 1880s that became part of the Montauk Association. This cluster of homes for wealthy New Yorkers later became known as the "Seven Sisters." This 20-acre estate, owned for some 40 years by legendary talk show host Dick Cavett, is home to an historic three-story residence with a finished lower level that was painstakingly rebuilt to mirror the original structure but with today's amenities after a tragic fire destroyed it in the late 1990's. Bordered to the east by nearly 200 acres of oceanside parkland along 2,200 ft of coastline, the estate offers a rare combination of history, natural beauty, privacy and a remarkable house from which to savor it all. Now back on the market after a brief hiatus with a new compelling price, Cavett's Cove, although secluded, is just minutes away from restaurants, private airport, marinas, renowned golf courses and everything else that makes the very eastern tip of Long Island a world-class destination. Contact us today for your private tour of this spectacular offering at an equally spectacular new price.
