16 Cliff Drive & 8 Old Montauk Highway - Montauk, New York
Eothen (meaning "from the east") represents a rare opportunity to own one of America's greatest and most storied summer compounds. Few locations in the world afford the unparalleled combination of a 30-acre oceanfront compound with a historic equestrian farm. Surrounded by miles of riding trails and hundreds of acres of adjoining oceanfront reserve, this property provides ultimate privacy while being located in the hottest market on the east end: Montauk. A true East End landmark, the 5.7-acre estate was built in the early 1930's as a 'fishing camp' by the Church family (makers of the Arm & Hammer baking soda fortune). Subsequent owner Andy Warhol made the compound famous frequently entertaining a host of luminaries including Jackie Onassis, Mick Jagger, Elizabeth Taylor and John Lennon. Horses graze on the 24-acre equestrian facility which graces the approach to the oceanfront compound and boasts two restored barns (combined 29 stalls) built by Carl Fisher (of Miami and Montauk fame) in the late 1920's. There is an existing house on 4 buildable acres that can accommodate a pool and/or possible tennis court. The property includes 6 individual cottages which have been meticulously restored by architect extraordinaire Thierry Despont. The unique setting offers unparalleled proximity to the Atlantic Ocean with stunning views of the sea and rugged cliffs of Montauk. No description does this rare property justice. It's a picture that must be seen in order to capture its essence.
