What/Where: A restored upside-down oceanfront beach house from the ’60s in Montauk.
Size: 3,000 square feet, 0.5 acres.

This week’s PriceSpotter is an incredible, restored upside-down beach house, originally designed by Peter Blake in 1961. With an upside-down layout, the bedrooms all sit on the ground level of the home, while the living and dining spaces are on the second level, maximizing the views over the ocean.

Inside, there are four bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and one half-bathroom, as well as hardwood floors, glass sliders that lead out to a waterview terrace, and a wide open kitchen with a center island.

Outside, private steps lead down over a cliff to a private ocean beach.

Located south of the highway, this contemporary style home is sited near Shadmoor State Park—a convenient distance between Ditch Plains Beach and Montauk’s business district. It was previously available for sale back in 2010 for a lower price (that we won’t reveal quite yet), but ultimately, it didn’t sell. It las sold in 2001 for $500,000.
