An Early Work Robert A.M. Stern Would Probably Rather Forget

Have a nomination for a jaw-dropping listing that would make a mighty fine House of the Day? Get thee to the tipline and send us your suggestions. We'd love to see what you've got.

Location: Montauk, N.Y.
Price: $1,995,000
The Skinny: Today, he's the man behind some of NYC's most significant new buildings—including Superior Ink and 15 Central Park West, whose penthouse recently sold for $88M—but before he was the king of architectural nostalgia Robert A.M. Stern was a budding architect like any other. This East End home, completed in 1968, was one of Stern's first works after graduating Yale. A three-bedroom with peeks at the water, the house is shingled, but far from traditional shingle style, and further still from Stern's later, more grandiose work. The interiors, too, are well and truly dated, with pastel colors and run-of-the-mill finishes everywhere. At least the price is lower than at Stern's Manhattan blockbusters: the place is currently listed for a little less than $2M, down from a bold $3.5M back in '08.
