Perched atop an oceanfront bluff in Montauk, the former home of iconic photographer Richard Avedon is available to rent for the summer with a $495,000 price tag, Curbed reported. The owners hope to rent it out for the entire season — Memorial Day to Labor Day — but it’s also available for shorter stints, with June priced at $125,000 and July going for $175,000. The 3,500-square-foot home at 430 Old Montauk Highway was built in 1980 and has five bedrooms, five-and-a-half bathrooms, a large eat-in kitchen, ocean views throughout and a staircase to a private ocean beach. Tenants would also be able to use the caretaker’s home, the pool and a studio on the 3.2-acre property, which is one of three parcels. Avedon owned the property for 20 years until he sold it for $9 million in 2000 as part of a larger 7.5-acre compound. Avedon, who gained fame as a fashion photographer before transitioning into a more documentary style, died in 2004. Douglas Elliman’s Paul Brennan has the rental listing for the property’s current owners, East End architect Frederick Stelle and his wife Bettina, who Behind the Hedges reports now mostly live in North Haven near Sag Harbor. [Curbed]
