Cynthia Rowley Ditching One Of Her Ditch Plains Houses

One of Cynthia Rowley's homes in Montauk has just hit the market for $1.1M. This cozy little bungalow was designed in the late 1930s by architect Donald Deskey for the 1939-40 World's Fair in New York; the "Sportshack," as he called it, was designed to "overcome the public's aversion to factory-built homes by using open spaces, new materials, and practical decor."

This iteration was built in Montauk in the 1940s and is about 500-sq-ft, but because of it's location on a generous .93 acre lot, it's definitely possible to make it bigger (Rowley currently has plans for a 2500-sq-ft house that she'll be delighted to hand over to the new owner).

After the sale, Rowley will likely renovate and move into the run down surf shack around the corner on Seaside Avenue that she snapped up for $820k back in June.
