Stanford White Ocean View Cottage

One of Montauk's iconic ''Seven Sisters'' has just become available. Sited on the most spectacular elevated stretch of moorlands overlooking shadbush-laced dunes and the ocean beyond, these seven fabled summer cottages were built in the late 1880's as an exclusive summer colony for Montauk land baron Arthur Benson and his friends. Legendary architect Stanford White designed each cottage for this dramatic cliffside location. Central Park landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted chose the site for each residence to take best advantage of the stunning views in every direction. These beautifully preserved shingle-style classics are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. They are one of the most photographed coastal locations in the world.;153 Deforest offers especially exciting views of the moors, ocean and a stretch of coastline reaching for miles. Enjoying perhaps the best location of any of the Seven Sisters, this 2.3 acre property sits on an elevated perch providing a dream-like panorama of the blue Atlantic and a vast expanse of green moors. One hundred acres of reserve surround the property providing exceptional privacy. The interior of the cottage has undergone a multiyear renovation by a top historian to restore the integrity and simplicity of its original classic design, including meticulous restoration of the original millwork, windows and floors. The cottage offers 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths and two half baths, and 6 fireplaces over 3,800 sq. ft. of living space with expansion possible. Public rooms include a sunken living room, dining room and library, all with fireplaces. Extensive porches and a second floor veranda offer mesmerizing views that always inspire. Approval in place for Gunite swimming pool and spa. Over the last 125 years, the ''Seven Sisters'' have been home to titans of business, celebrated artists, international celebrities and a long list of legendary guests. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a classic coastal cottage with a storied pedigree in an absolutely magical setting.
