Historic House For Sale

The Montauk life saving station now for sale as a private home.

It’s not often a historic house in a magical location comes on the market. Yes, for the right price you can now own a piece of . . . The White House! We’re kidding, of course. The Montauk Ditch Plains Life Saving Station, sitting on almost six acres, is for sale though, and it is worth taking a hard look at.

“As someone who was born in Montauk and raised in Ditch Plains,” said exclusive listing agent Theresa Eurell, Town & Country, “I feel sentimental about this rare property. It reminds me of when life was a little bit slower. I have many memories of the way Ditch used to be and it’s so nice to have that feeling when entering this home.”

Built in 1930, the home was originally known as the Ditch Plains Coast Guard Station. Decommissioned in 1954, the Colonial Revival style building was moved to its current location on Benson Drive, Montauk in 1956. The gable roof, scale, and shingle exterior make it comparable with other homes in the Montauk Historic District. Many original features add to the charm of the home — the roofline, dormers on the front roof, and the front porch with retains the original posts, lintel, cornice, and roof. They don’t make them like this anymore, she said.

Eurell can be reached at the Town & Country Real Estate Montauk office located at One Carl Fisher Plaza for a private viewing or more details.
