History meets luxury at 66 Old Montauk Highway in Amagansett — a seven-bedroom, six-bathroom, 19th century renovation that sold for just shy of $11 million on October 27, trading hands between LLCs, according to the Real Estate Report Inc.

Saunders & Associates represented the seller of the property, where the centerpiece is the original 1870s home of Captain Joshua B. Edwards, who is famous for capturing the last offshore whale off Amagansett in 1907. Renovated by master builder Michael Davis, the expanded 5,000-square-foot home sprawls across four floors with much of its historic charm still intact — including the façade and farmhouse details throughout.

The main level transitions from the original entry to a newly added formal dining room, open concept chef’s kitchen, pantry, mud room and great room, with floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors to the outdoor living area, pool and garden, according to the listing.

The master suite, which has a private terrace, and master bath — complete with double sink dolomite stone vanity tops, a cast iron Balmoral soaking tub, steam shower and two walk-in closets — live on the second floor with three en-suite bathrooms. Another bedroom is on the third floor, and the lower level features a recreation room, laundry center, and a pair of bedroom suites.

“Whether you desire a home office, remote learning space, yoga room/gym or a showcase for your collection, two versatile barn structures stand poised on the property to meet your needs,” the listing adds.
