The Goods - This striking quarter-acre Montauk contemporary boasts panoramic views from both first and second floors (and a flat roof that could accommodate a deck). It’s one of the best-built houses in town, according to Sotheby’s broker Bill Williams. “From floor to ceiling only the finest materials were chosen in building this home,” including the “enormous fireplace finished with Zimbabwe Granite.” Better yet, with its hurricane-rated windows and electric roll-down shutters, it’s virtually storm proof. Its attributes go on from radiant heat to top appliances. Located across Old Montauk Highway from the beach, you can “watch the waves break from the 55-foot ocean-side pool.” The owner has put more than $7 million into the property. $4,895,000
Why It’s a Great Deal - Three words: overhead telephone wires. When the owner built it in 2010, he was under the impression that the wires were going to be buried. They will be, but no one knows when.
