This is one beach cottage with an ultra modern look. Glass surrounds much of the home, so you have gorgeous views of Block Island Sound, which is just a few steps from the extensive L-shaped deck.

The interior amenities include 10-foot ceilings, a great room with a brick fireplace, wood paneling and tile floors. There's a boardwalk to the shore and 100 feet of private beach - plus an outdoor shower and a new bulkhead.

Montauk lies on the eastern extreme of Long Island, east of the Hamptons, and is well known as a sport fishing center; it claims more record fish than any other port in the nation. But as a seasonal enclave for many wealthy New Yorkers, it also boasts fine dining, shopping and night life.
