Enchanting Sag Harbor Retreat
The saltbox home has one of the most recognizable silhouettes in Colonial American architecture, and this 3,000-square-foot Greek Revival charmer on one of the prettiest streets in Sag Harbor Village pays a stylish homage to New England history.
Dating to the 19th century, this classic home was restored and rejuvenated by a local design team, resulting in a delightfully stylish and inviting retreat that combines clean modern interiors and amenities with cherished period details and accents, including richly hued wide plank flooring and four warming fireplaces.
The heart of the home is the spacious, light-filled kitchen, which features abundant south-facing windows, an island topped with white Carrara marble, professional-grade stainless-steel appliances, areas for sitting and dining, and French doors to a terrace that has been custom-outfitted with a clear-cedar dining table.
Other inviting spaces include a formal living and dining rooms with original fireplaces, and a comfortable office or media room that could serve as a fourth bedroom.
Secluded on the second level are the home’s three bedrooms.
The master suite encompasses two custom-outfitted closets and a spa-like bath with a deep soaking tub that enjoys a treetop view.
An office tucked between the master suite and the two guest bedrooms creates additional welcome privacy.
Visitors can be accommodated in stylish comfort in the charming oversized pool house, which offers entertaining space with a den and a bar.
The quarter-acre grounds are strewn with mature specimen trees and thriving hydrangeas.
Sublime alfresco summer living is a breeze here, particularly on the sunny-soaked south-facing lawn, where enticements include a saltwater pool with multicolored lights, two hammocks strung between sturdy cherry trees, a shady lounging area with a sunbed, an outdoor shower, and terrace with stacked stone wall overlooking the pool, affording the perfect spot for open-air dining.
Sag Harbor’s Main Street, boutiques, popular restaurants, marinas, and the scenic harbor at Long Wharf are mere blocks away.
