Property description

Available for the last two weeks of August. Enjoy the horse show during the day, come home to drinks on the porch watching another perfect sunset and then enjoy the dining and nightlife of Sag Harbor. This historic waterfront house is on one of the Sag Harbor coves. The wide lawns lead from a hammock to a dock with 3 foot draft for boats and swimming. Built for a sea captain, the house has six bedrooms (including a master suite with dressing room), four bathrooms (two with claw foot tubs), two parlors, a dining room, an office, and a family room. Every room has a water view of Sag Harbor or the cove. A large wrap-around porch is a spectacular place to dine, read in one of the rockers, or nap on the porch swing. The eat-in kitchen is renovated and the house has air conditioning. Leave your car at the house and walk to Sag Harbor village for the restaurants, shopping, and theater, or catch the Hampton Jitney to New York City.

Sag Harbor is one of the most desirable summer destinations. It is minutes from The Hamptons, yet has its own charm. The old whaling village surrounds a protected harbor with marina. Three adjoining coves offer swimming and water sports. The village is known for its antiques and boutiques. The restuarants offer a range from elegant seafood dinners overlooking the water, to designer hamburgers. The nightlife is extensive with numerous bars and clubs. Live theater is found at the Bay Street Theater, with many performers from Broadway and Hollywood. Our house is just over a bridge, so you can walk to all the excitment of town. Of course you want to be back for the best sunset view from our porch.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1832

About the owner: We are the sixth generation to live in this house, and enjoy this wonderful spot. We are four sisters sharing this home with our families. The house was built for a whaling captain and his family, and been passed down from mother to daughter ever since. We grew up spending our summers in the this house - beach picnics at the ocean, and learning to sail on the cove. It was a right of passage for each of us when we could walk to town by ourselves, and now our children have enjoyed the same achievement.

Why the Owner Chose Sag Harbor:
Our house was built on the cove side of North Haven, the side where the prevailing winds cool it all summer. The porch faces West, so you can watch the sunset on the water, while enjoying the fresh foods of Eastern Long Island. There are numerous seafood stores, farm stands and wineries to help create the perfect dinner. There are two dining tables on the porch, so 9 can sit at table, but you may opt for the comfortable couch, swing, rockers and chairs with plates on your laps. We have a gas grill, so you can cook your catch of the day outside. For six generations our family has found summers peaceful and relaxing in this house, and hope your family will enjoy it just as much.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is on 2 acres, where one acre has been kept as woods. We have a sweeping lawn complete with hammock. There is a dock with 3' draft for your boat. We offer use of two small sailboats and a kayak. The house is large, so you can spread out into any of the 6 bedrooms (all sport water views). The kitchen and family room are recently renovated, and make an ideal place to cook and chat. There is a large parking area for your car, and walk to town. You can even leave the car and walk to the Hampton Jitney for a day or two in New York City.
