And as one of the priciest listings to hit the market this year, this oceanfront spread is certainly worth talking about. The Stanford White-designed property at 165 Deforest Road sits on a whopping 20 acres, including 900 feet of beach frontage. Dubbed Tick Hall, the residence spans 7,000 square feet, and contains seven bedrooms and five bathrooms. Built in the early 1880s, it’s the last of seven houses knowns as the “Seven Sisters” designed by White’s firm,  McKim, Mead & White. Technically though, the version of the property today is just a replica. The original was burned to the ground in a 1997 fire. Cavett acquired the home with his late ex-wife, actress Carrie Nye, in the 1960s. Karen Kelley and Tim Davis of Corcoran share the listing. [WSJ]
