A historic Montauk home that once served as the original Coast Guard station for Ditch Plains has come on the market for $4.25 million.

The three-story shingled home is sited on a sizable 6 acres of land in Montauk’s historic district where the Seven Sisters are also located. Inside, one will find period details like a wood-burning fireplace in the living room and original hardwood flooring throughout. An eat-in kitchen, formal dining room, den, and laundry room are all on the first level.

While the property isn’t oceanfront, it’s not short of water views. One will be able to see Lake Montauk off the second-story balcony, and the ocean in the distance from the third level.

The master suite is sited on the second floor along with two other guest bedrooms, while two more bedrooms plus an office can be found on the third floor. In 4,000 square feet, there are a total of four bedrooms and five bathrooms.

Unfortunately there isn’t a pool outside—but there is plenty of space for one, and the property comes with a pool permit in place as well as an “approved landscape site redevelopment plan,” according to the listing.

Though the property served as the Coast Guard station when it was first built, it was decommissioned in 1954 and was moved to its current location at 136 Benson Drive two years later in 1956.
