This oceanview Montauk house is architecturally significant, designed by Robert AM Stern just a few years out of design school back in the 1960s. The 3000sf three bedroom first hit the market back in 2008, asking $3.5M; as of last autumn it was $1.995M and now it's up to $2.395M.
"This first house by a beginning architect, reflecting the Philadelphia School approach to architecture, especially that of his mentor, Robert Venturi, will be one of the most dramatic and 'far out' statements of the latest thinking in architecture," wrote Philip Johnson in the 40 Under 40 exhibition catalog the home once appeared in.
The interior is designed to have "as many alternatives of size, shape, vista, and space as is possible in a small house." So far, at least, it's too "far out" for buyers, despite the oceanviews from the roof deck.
