Welcome to Montauk

What makes Mantauk's homes so special? Situated on the easternmost tip of Long Island, the hamlet of Montauk has blossomed from a sleepy fishing village into one of the trendiest Hamptons areas among young professionals and transplants from the Manhattan art and fashion scenes. Montauk’s appeal lies in mixing traditional Hampton's sophistication with a vibrant contemporary culture.
Many of Montauk’s most venerable institutions stem the work of Carl G. Fisher in the 1920s. Fisher intended to turn Montauk into “the Miami Beach of the North,” a feat Fisher was uniquely well positioned to execute given he was largely responsible for the planning and development of the original Miami Beach area. Fisher’s legacy includes the grand mock-Tudor opulence of the Montauk Manor hotel, the Montauk Yacht Club, Montauk Downs Golf Course, and a tennis auditorium which has since been converted into the Montauk Playhouse. Today around thirty of Fisher’s gorgeous Tudor Revival buildings remain in their original form in Montauk.
Montauk is one of the most colorful areas in the Hamptons, with a great variety of options for dining out, shopping, and nightlife. It is also a fantastic point from which to explore the stunning natural beauty of the Hamptons, with six state parks within the town’s vicinity.

There are also fabulous oceanfront properties offering instant access to white sand beaches and the waters of Lake Montauk, Fort Pond Bay, Napeague Harbor and Bay, and the Atlantic Ocean.
