Historic Montauk Mansion Created by the Great Innovator Carl G. Fisher Asks $7.2M
Constructed in the “fishing capital of the world” in 1925, this property is more than just another Montauk mansion. With its strong historic bones, the estate holds a charming sense of the past that seamlessly blends with the present. Even though the abode comes with a $7.2 million price tag, to some, owning such a rare Montauk mansion is priceless.
To understand the history of this home, one must become acquainted with the innovator who commissioned the property. Carl G. Fisher was a famed entrepreneur of the early 1900s who literally paved the way for how we live today. Not only was he the brains behind the Montauk, Miami Beach, and the Indianapolis Speedway, but he also conceptualized the Lincoln Highway—the first US transcontinental highway joining the East and West Coasts. Having played a key part in the automotive, construction, and real estate industries, he is remembered as a true pioneer. As such, he has long been inducted into the Automotive Hall of Fame.
Fisher also oversaw the build and design of this magnificent estate, his personal Montauk home. With eight bedrooms and three bathrooms, the 8,000-square-foot main house provides an extraordinary amount of space for parties, family gatherings, corporate retreats, and vacation getaways. There is even a three-bedroom guest house, as well as room for a pool and tennis court.
Since the 100 acres of adjacent preserves are completely protected from development, the water views will never be harmed. So for those seeking a historic piece of Montauk, this luxurious mansion is your golden ticket. Lisa Maysonet of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty holds this listing.
