A highly efficient method has been developed for the construction of a bicyclo[3.3.1]nonane skeleton, which entails two consecutive tandem conjugate addition - intramolecular aldol reaction of ethyl acetoacetate (2 equiv) with conjugated enals. After hydrolysis of the double cyclization products, 6- and/or 7-substituted 1-hydroxybicyclo[3.3.1]nonan-3-ones have been obtained.
