The opportunity to own one of the East End's most iconic and unique properties. This estate is comprised of nearly 20 private acres of secluded oceanfront surrounded by nearly 200 acres of preserve. 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 magnificent estate has been lovingly cared for and owned for over 50 years by legendary talk show host Dick Cavett. Though the original structure burned down in 1997, the home was entirely rebuilt to reflect its original 1880's design using forensic architecture. The 6,500+ sq ft home is the seamless combination of modern amenities and timeless charm. No detail has been overlooked throughout this beautiful home offering six bedrooms, four bathrooms, a gorgeous kitchen open to a covered and screened porch overlooking the ocean, formal living and dining rooms, den, office, a finished lower level, and a cozy finished attic with reading nook. The wrap-around porches are the perfect place to enjoy outdoor living and dining, and take in the sunrise and sunset views. Miles of walking trails lead to hidden gems spanning the property including a picturesque gazebo overlooking the ocean, the stone encompassed free form gunite pool with pagoda and accessory structure, and down another path, a pond. The winding path along the cliffside leads to your private beach access. The staircase down to the sandy shoreline affords one access to the 900+ feet of ocean frontage. A truly, remarkable setting.
