A 7,500-square-foot Montauk home set atop 3.1 blufftop acres was the subject of a 2008 overhaul by Tanzanian-born architect David Adjaye, the lead designer of Washington D.C.’s National Museum of African American History & Culture. It is listed for $23 million.

The six-bedroom, 8 1⁄2 -bath spread boasts ocean views from every room and features an interior inspired by a vintage sailing ship.

“The walls were covered in American walnut to create warm, modern interiors reflecting a contemporary twist on midcentury Modern,” says listing agent Yorgos Tsibiridis of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. He is co-listing with Michael Lorber, Noble Black and Christopher Stewart.

Inside, a great room includes a wall of French doors and a double-sided fireplace that divides living and dining spaces. A bookshelf-lined study opens to a terrace. The stainless-steel kitchen includes a poured concrete island, professional-grade appliances, a breakfast room, chef’s pantry and prep room.

Five second-floor bedroom suites have views of the ocean, the moorlands and the endless reserve,” Tsibiridis says; a media room separates the master bedroom suite from four guest suites.

Outside, a pergola runs the length of the residence and provides additional covered entertaining space. The grounds include an in-ground 22-by-40-foot gunite pool and spa and a poolside pergola. Stairs to the oceanfront beach have Montauk lighthouse views, Tsibiridis says.

A finished lower level includes a home theater, wine cellar and children’s playroom. The attached two-car garage includes a hydraulic lift.
