A Montauk compound owned by Michael Hirtenstein, a real estatenightlife and telecommunications mogul, has gone into contract, Curbed reported. The home, which has been on the market since April when it was asking for $21 million, was designed by architect James Biber in 2006 and honored by both the American Institute of Architects and the American Architecture Awards. The property made headlines in 2017 when Tinder spent $135,000 a month to rent the compound, which has about 300 feet of ocean frontage and is made up of two properties, each about two acres. The 5,500-square-foot main house has three levels, a gourmet kitchen, a roof deck and wraparound terraces. The 2,400-square-foot guest house has two bedrooms, one bathroom and an eat-in kitchen. Both buildings were built by Men At Work and can withstand hurricane-force winds. The compound, which also has a heated gunite infinity pool, a hot tub and an outdoor shower, was bought by Hirtenstein in 2013. The Corcoran Group’s Gary DePersia is representing the listing. [Curbed]
