Famed race car driver, Carl Fisher, once built and owned the incredible mansion at 44 Foxboro Road in Montauk—which is about to hit the market under Compass Real Estate for $9.5 million, reports Mansion Global. Fisher is also known for his work in highway construction, notably conceiving and developing the Lincoln Highway, which was the first transcontinental highway that reached from the far east to the far west of the United States.

Built in the late 1920s, the 8,000-square-foot home is sited on nearly eight acres of land, with six ensuite bedrooms and two additional half-bathrooms inside the main house. The guest house can accommodate nearly just as many people with five bedrooms and five bathrooms.

Aside from the main property, the entire compound has an additional three buildable parcels—one is just under an acre, while the other two are both about a half-acre.

The home has only been in the hands of two families since it was built: the Fishers, and the Akin family, who purchased it from Fisher’s wife in 1954 after he died several years earlier.

Period details in the shingle-style estate that have remained in the home include paneled ceilings, three stone fireplaces, the staircase, the timber hardwood floors, and the French doors that lead outside.
