The celebrated talk show host Dick Cavett has reduced the price of his iconic oceanfront home in Montauk by nearly $15 million, bringing the ask down to $33.95 million, Curbed reported. Known as Cavett’s Cove, the nearly 20-acre property at 176 Deforest Road first came on the market in June 2017 at $62 million, but was cut down to $48.5 million in August 2018. Cavett bought the property, then called Tick Hall, in 1968. The home is part of the Montauk Association Historic District’s collection of shingle-style homes called the “Seven Sisters.” Tick Hall was designed by Stanford White in 1882, but burned down in 1997. An exact replica of Tick Hall was built in its place four years later by Cavett and his first wife, the late actress Carrie Nye, a process that was the subject of a 2003 documentary. (Cavett remarried in 2010.) Today, the 7,000-square-foot home has six bedrooms, four bathrooms, a wraparound porch, hardwood floors and oceanviews throughout. The property also includes 900 feet of ocean frontage and a private path to a beach. Gary DePersia of the Corcoran Group has the listing. [Curbed]
