What/Where: A tiny shingled oceanview cottage in Montauk, located south of the highway.
Size: 900 square feet, 0.69 acres.
This week’s PriceSpotter is a tiny cottage that needs work—but it’s on an oceanview piece of land located south of the highway in the Hither Hills neighborhood of Montauk.
Built in 1968, the shingled house is just 900 square feet in size with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Interiors include hardwood floors, a fireplace, an ensuite master bathroom with water views, and sliding glass doors that lead outside. The property spans 0.69 acres, so the new owners have plenty of space to expand and add a pool.
The greatest feature of this Montauk plot is that it’s sited on a high elevation and offers the owners deeded ocean beach access. Google Maps estimates that the ocean is just a short 3-minute walk from the house, which makes the property extremely desirable.
Even though the house is a bit small and would need some work to be brought up to date, considering the location and elevation, what do you think the house is listed for? We won’t reveal an address quite yet, but we will tell readers that a nearby empty 0.22-acre lot is asking $1,195,000—so we’re going to start the poll for this 0.69-acre property at $2 million.
