For more than a century, countless visitors to the eastern most tip of Long Island have discovered the recuperative powers and magical allure of Montauk's serene yet rugged coastline. For decades, world-famous artists and writers have been entranced by this sublime stretch of oceanfront: names like Richard Avedon, Peter Beard, Andy Warhol, Dick Cavett, Bruce Weber, Paul Simon, Julian Schnabel. All were in their own way captivated by the magical bluffs with epic views to Montauk Point iconic Lighthouse and Block Island beyond.
And today, The Bluff House, spanning 2 distinct parcels, stands ready to welcome another to these shores in far more comfort than they could possibly imagine. Magnificent views are just the background to the spell woven by this unforgettable gated bluff top retreat sprawling over 6 acres along 535 feet of pristine Montauk Point oceanfront. Deeded access to your own protected cove is via your private staircase, which is not easily duplicated today. This stretch of water is known by surfers as "The Ranch," and revered as the best private surf spot on Long Island. Among surf casters, your oceanfront is famous for striped bass and the occasional basking seal. The elegant residence, reigning over its own 3+ acres, is traditional on the exterior, but modern and fresh within due to a recent interior renovation that has added significant furniture and important artwork, included in the sale of this fully furnished 6-bedroom, 7,500 SF+/- house, all carefully curated by renowned Montauk based designer and collector Bob Melet. With impressive vistas from nearly every room, the handsomely finished walnut floors spread out to find a spacious living room which, sundrenched by day, is highlighted by walls of glass and a floor to ceiling 2-sided fireplace warming the dining room as well. Upstairs, the sensuous master wing offers a hemlock clad bedroom, spa-like bath and a media room reigning over 4 additional guest suites. The finished lower level finds a billiards room with bar, screening room, wine cellar, and a staff suite. Languorous lunches and intimate moonlit dinners will be enjoyed, inside and out, all prepared in the new state of the art eat-in kitchen. Outside both covered and uncovered patios provide ample room for lounging and unobstructed views to watch ships come and go. Additional amenities include smart home technology, full house generator and a heated garage with hydraulic lift. The heated Gunite pool with spa, one of the largest allowed along these bluffs, is framed by a stunning landscape design laid out by world-renowned landscape architect Miranda Brooks.
And since owning a house on the ocean is more fun sharing with friends, a savvy buyer could compound their possibilities as the contiguous 2.8-acre parcel allows for a guest house for the weekend overflow of fortunate invitees. Surf in the morning right out your back door while kite-boarding in the afternoon as the southwest thermals prevail. Catch your dinner off your own seashore or just relax in a protected cove or by your pool. The point is, the choice is yours if you make The Bluff House, a very singular estate, your own.
