Sag Harbor house description

My house is one that delights and surprises—architecturally and atmospherically. Ample, airy and bright, it has a better-than-water view over 20 acres of wetlands abounding in bird life and sporting the changing colors of the seasons. Yet it’s only a 20-minute walk to the village in one direction, and 10 minutes to the expanse of Long Beach in the other.

PLEASE NOTE: It’s NOT a spare, white-and-beige, Hamptons stage set; it’s a personal place that reflects my love of color and colorful decoration, my thirst for sunlight. No adjoining neighbors and fully private.

The basics: three bedrooms, each with bathroom—two queen-size beds and twin singles—and a TV-den/bedroom with pullout sofa and separate bathroom across the hall. Two-storey living room, dining room, kitchen, screen porch, gazebo with hammock, huge patio, swimming pool, dishwasher, clothes washer and dryer. Air-conditioning units in the bedrooms, plus ceiling fans.

(The upstairs writing room and non-attached, 20’x40’ artists studio are NOT included in the rental but possibly negotiable.)

Rental comes with weekly maid service, pool service and garden maintenance as needed. Basic cable TV, high-speed Internet; wi-fi.

Children, pets and smokers welcome. Emphatically and categorically NOT available as house-share.

Take good care of my house, and it will take good care of you.

Price: May 15-September 15 = $35,000; June 15-September 15 = $30,000. July 4th weekend through Labor Day weekend = $26,000. Long-term rental also a possibility.

                              Year Purchased: 1985

                              About the owner: I'm a writer and painter, now living most of year in Oaxaca, Mexico. Sag Harbor and the surrounding area have been part of my life for some 70 years. The landscape has certainly changed, but ecological richness and variety still abound, the charm of the area's several villages persists, and the cornucopia of summer events and distractions continues to make the beach-bound Hamptons an unbeatable playground. Come and enjoy it as much as I have!
