Earlier this week, we asked readers to guess the asking price for this restored Peter Blake beach house in Montauk. Originally built in 1961, the modern oceanfront home is listed with Sotheby’s International Realty agent, Rylan Jacka, for $6,995,000—which made most of our readers spot-on.

We had 34 percent of votes in the correct category of between $6 million and $8 million, followed by a close tie between the previous two options. About 24 percent of votes went to the adjacent option of between $4 million and $6 million, and just about the same amount of voters went with the category of between $2 million and $4 million.

Only three people thought it was under $2 million, while about 15 people thought it was asking over $8 million.

It last sold back in 2001 for $500,000 and came back on the sales market in 2010 for $5.75 million. After four months up for sale, it actually increased the asking price to $5.95 million, but eventually the listing was removed.

In 3,000 square feet of living space, the home features an upside-down floor plan where the bedrooms are on the first level and the living and dining spaces are all on the second floor, which maximizes the surrounding views of the ocean. Inside, there are four bedrooms, two full bathrooms, one half-bathroom, and a dining terrace off the second level.

The oceanfront half-acre property also has a private staircase that leads down to the ocean beach.
