The Rolling Stones spent some time there in the 1970s, as did John Lennon, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Elizabeth Taylor. Before Andy Warhol bought it in 1971, this Montauk compound—called Eothen (meaning "from the east")—belonged to the Churches, better known as the Arm & Hammer family. After the NY Times published an article on the place in 2006, called "The Unsold Warhol," J. Crew CEO Mickey Drexler scooped it up for $27 million.
Sadly, Drexler didn't keep things quite the same, and the property underwent extensive renovations, and now includes a framed confederate flag. Which you can burn in your beach bonfire.
The property, a historic 6 cottage beachfront compound, is back on the market—it includes Carl Fisher-designed barns, acres of land, a swimming pool, a tennis court, sprawling views, sweet privacy, and a kitchen Keith Richards once cooked in.
