The historic home at 153 Deforest Road in Montauk has just received a price cut for the first time since coming on the market in September under Sotheby’s International Realty real estate agent, Rylan Jacka. Now listed for $14,995,000, the Seven Sisters home with ocean views was previously asking $16.25 million.
Built in 1880, the Andrews House was designed by Stanford White, who was the architect for all of the Seven Sisters homes in the Montauk Association. In the late 1800s, real estate developer Arthur Benson hired the architect firm McKim, Mead & White and the Central Park landscape architect Fredrick Law Olmsted to build the homes for himself and six of his friends.
The homes are considered to be revered pieces of architectural history, representing important examples of the shingle style home and all overlooking the ocean from a high point in Montauk. Dick Cavett’s Seven Sisters home, Tick Hall, also went on the market for $62 million in May of 2017, but has since come off the market.
Prior to listing in September, the 3,800-square-foot Andrews House was for sale with Douglas Elliman back in 2016 for $18.5 million. All seven homes are on the National Register of Historic Places
Inside, there are four bedrooms, two full bathrooms, two half-bathrooms, and six fireplaces. The listing claims that the Andrews House is sited on “perhaps the best location of any of the Seven Sisters” on 2.3 acres of land. The cottage’s interior has undergone a recent restoration spearheaded by a historian, aiming to bring the home’s original history to the forefront of the structure.
