$50,000,000 USD | New York, USA | Sotheby’s International Realty – East Hampton Brokerage
Eothen (meaning “from the east”) represents a rare opportunity to own one of America’s greatest and most storied summer compounds. Few locations in the world afford the unparalleled combination of approximately 30-acres of oceanfront compound with a historic equestrian farm. Surrounded by miles of riding trails and hundreds of acres of adjoining oceanfront reserve, this property provides ultimate privacy while being located in the hottest market on the east end, Montauk. A true East End landmark, the nearly six-acre estate was built in the early 1930s as a “fishing camp” by the Church family, of the Arm & Hammer baking soda fortune. Subsequent owner Andy Warhol made the compound famous frequently entertaining a host of luminaries including Jackie Onassis, Mick Jagger, Elizabeth Taylor and John Lennon. Horses graze on the 24-acre equestrian facility, which graces the approach to the oceanfront compound and boasts two restored barns built by Carl Fisher in the late 1920s.
