The Montauk mansion once owned by Carl Fisher, a pioneer in the town’s resort history, is available for rent for the summer season, listed with John Keeshan of Keeshan Real Estate.
Fisher built the six-bedroom hilltop home in the 1920s at a time when he was working on plans to turn Montauk into a summer playground for the wealthy. He had built Miami Beach, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the Lincoln Highway. He later lost his money in the stock market crash of 1929, never completing his vision for the area, but many of the buildings he erected in Montauk still remain.
The Colonial Revival home has views of the ocean and lake, and has a cook's kitchen, a billiard/game room, a television room and a grand staircase with a foyer.
The house is available for July and August or both, although Keeshan would not reveal the asking price. "It is possible it could be available for an extended period of time" as well, he says.
