Imagine you have $2.65 million to spend on a place and you've narrowed it down to two Montauk listings. How do you make up your mind? The answer is simple: you shove them into a metaphorical cage and let them battle it out until one emerges victorious. It's time for Real Estate Deathmatch.
↑ First up, this Montauk home is on the market with five bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms across 3,000 square feet of space. This listing offers EPA decking, an outdoor shower, and a detached garage. On the first floor, there is a mudroom and an eat-in kitchen comes with stainless steel appliances. On the upper level, the master suite features a private deck. The two guest bedrooms share a bathroom.
↑ In 2004, this Montauk single-family home was constructed with four bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms. It's a little smaller than the above listing, spanning roughly 2,500 square feet. There's no pool, but it is close to the beach. Outside, the stone terrace comes with a built-in barbecue grill. There is also a two-car attached garage.
