Dick Cavett’s famed Seven Sisters Home in Montauk Sells for $23M
World-famous interviewer, American television personality, comedian, and former talk show host Dick Cavett, has owned this spectacular home overlooking the ocean in Montauk, NY for more than 50 years. Now, he's sold it and before the new owner moves in, you can take a tour of this spectacular oceanfront home.
Dick Cavett's home is one of the famous "Seven Sisters" houses in Montauk. The Seven Sisters are all part of the Montauk Association, which is a series of homes built in the late 1800s after real estate developer Arthur Benson hired the architecture firm McKim, Mead & White, and landscape designer Frederick Law Olmsted to build seven homes for him and six of his friends. The notable architect on the project was Stanford White.
Dick Cavett's home actually burned to the ground in 1997. The only thing left was smoldering ashes and the chimney. He loved the house so much he had it rebuilt exactly like it was, but with a few small upgrades. He expanded the kitchen, brought everything up to modern code, and added screened porches.
It went on the market in 2017 for an unbelievable price of $62 million. It didn't sell. Recently he dropped the price and it sold for less than half of the original asking price.
You have to take a few minutes and look at the pictures and think about all the famous people that were interviewed at his Montauk home. As well as all the famous people that probably had just been there over the last 50-plus years. It's a beautiful piece of New York history.
