Tick Hall was a massive Shingle style estate made of southern pine overlooking the Eastern seaboard in Montauk, N.Y., built by architect Stanford White in the 1880s.
It was that. It also still is that.
See, Tick Hall burned down in 1997 (possibly due to roofers leaving behind a blowtorch), leaving only the chimney standing. The owners, television personality Dick Cavett and his late wife, actress Carrie Nye, were devastated. But then they set out with a monumental task to rebuild Tick Hall as it once was.
Cavett and Nye used old pictures, files, memories and a computer model to bring the 7,000 square-foot mansion back to life. It’s listed for sale at $62 million, and according to this listing, it’s the first time Tick Hall has been on the open market in 135 years (of course that’s not really true, but it’s close enough).
