Sag Harbor is the most picturesque of all the villages in the Hamptons. Bike into town from the house, walk around the village visit the bookstore, movie theatre (foreign and art-house fare) and Bay Street theatre (excellent performances). Sag Harbor is a cultural destination and great to yacht-watching, too. House is also within walking/biking distance of Long Beach--a pleasant and relaxing beach where you can have a swim and see the sunset.
Year Purchased: 1989
About the owner: I've lived in this house during summers since my mother bought it over 20 years ago. This house has brought much joy to my family--and will to yours, too!
Why the Owner Chose North Haven, NY, USA:
Coming out to the Hamptons during the summer is a treat--and we've found, in all our stays out here, that the Sag Harbor area is the most rewarding--you have a wonderfully picturesque old town, non-stop cultural events, excellent cuisine, and the house itself is a calming place to return to and settle in for any activity, be it reading, a game of croquette, or lighting up the fireplace on a cold night. Minimally and tastefully appointed, the original owner (my mother) was a renown publisher at Random House and developed the 'Style' and 'Living' line of books... elegant yet casual!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The whaler's tower, screened-in porch provide classic Victorian touches to this proud house and the large grounds with mature trees makes the house seem grand and opulent. My mother, who worked in publishing, was also an artist and designer--she had tremendous sense of style and flair--clean lines and rich decor, tasteful yet not ostentatious. It's a great house to relax and entertain in.
