Dick Cavett's Famous Montauk Home Reduces Price

UPDATE: The home has now been reduced to $48,500,00 and currently listed by Gary DePersia at Corcoran.

Corcoran just listed the famed Tick Hall in Montauk for $62M, owned by talk show host and author Dick Cavett – it has been part of Hamptons and Montauk lore for 135 years, when it was first built by the infamous Stanford White as one of the “Seven Sisters” of shingled homes known as the Montauk Association.

The actual structure of how the current iteration of the home came to be is fascinating: Tick Hall tragically burned down in 1997 in an accident possibly linked to a roof repair, leaving only the chimney standing, and years of family heirlooms and antiques destroyed.

Cavett and wife Carrie Nye vowed to build and exact replica on its place, not allowing any updates or even to fix any mistakes of the original home. With no plans remaining of the homes, the couple relied on photographs, their own memories, and even unorthodox methods like measuring the height of their actual pet dogs, because they had a picture of them jumping up on a windowsill. The rebuilding of the home was the subject of a 2003 documentary, “From the Ashes: The Life and Times of Tick Hall.”

One of the most extraordinary Homes in the world, it is bordered to the east by over 170 acres of oceanfront parkland with an additional 1,200 ft. of pristine coastline. A top-of-the-world site provides 360 degree views over your unmatched domain. A private path winds to your own oceanfront cove known by local cognoscenti as, “Cavett’s Cove”, with the most private sandy beach on the East End.

Incredible natural beauty in this setting and Miles and miles of equestrian trails are at your doorstep. A secluded fresh water pond offers a location on the property that screams for meditation as well as the swimming pool set away from the home down a special canopied trail boasting views of the sea. Only minutes to the regional airport, Lake Montauk marinas, world class golf and the renowned amenities of the Hamptons.

Guests in the home have included Muhammad Ali, Sir Laurence Olivier, Tennessee Williams, Alec Baldwin and Woody Allen.
