Tour One of Montauk’s Iconic ‘Seven Sisters’ Now Listed for $12M

One of Montauk’s famous ‘Seven Sisters’ is for sale at a new price. For a history lesson, the ‘Seven Sisters’ feature seven shingle-style cottages designed by Stanford White and built in the late 1880s, all listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This one sitting at 153 Deforest Road wanted $18.5 million in 2016, according to, but is now asking $11.95 million.

Inside, this traditional New England estate offers four bedrooms, two baths, and two half baths. Although the home originated in the 1800s, a multi-year renovation brought it right into the 21st century. Conducted by a top historian, the renovation focused on restoring the integrity and simplicity of its design, including the original millwork, windows, and floors. With a 3,800-square-foot interior, the home also includes a sunken living room, library, eat-in kitchen, and six fireplaces perfect for when the holidays roll around.

Perched upon 2.3 acres, the elevated parcel breathes spectacular vistas of the moorlands, ocean, and rugged coastline. Long ago, Central Park landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted chose the site specifically for the unmatched views. The expansive porches and second-floor veranda allow you to take true advantage of the location. To add, 100 acres of reserve surround the property for uninterrupted privacy.

Sisters, not twins, this special Montauk listing is held by Rylan Jacka of Sotheby’s International Realty.

Many high-profile figures have called the ‘Seven Sisters’ home and brought famous visitors along with them. Talk show host and comedian Dick Cavett has long owned the estate called Tick Hall, which is also currently for sale.
