This Montauk Leisurama home in the Culloden Shores community is listed for $775,000.

Prefabricated Leisurama homes were sold through Macy’s department stores during the mid-1960s. An early prototype was the site of former President Richard Nixon and Soviet n Premier Nikita Khrushchev’s legendary 1959 Kitchen Debate in Moscow.

Set on a 0.17-acre lot, this 1,500-square-foot house with two bedrooms and 1.5 baths retains original Leisurama features that date to 1965, including wood interior finishes, a brick fireplace and a Murphy bed. The main bathroom has been fully renovated. Outside, there is a carport and exterior mechanicals shed.

For owner Barry Braune, who rented out the place most summers and lived there during the offseason, views of a pond from the living room are tranquil throughout the year, but especially when the pond freezes during the winter.

“There have been many occasions where I’ve looked out the window and watched the deer, usually fawns with their parent, running around and chasing each other. It’s almost like watching a wildlife video,” he says. There are also foxes and egrets in the area, he adds.

Deeded beach rights include lifeguard service from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

The property is listed with Julia Stavola of Town & Country Real Estate.
