Just a literal stone’s throw from Sag Harbor’s only natural shoreline, Havens Beach, this spacious multi-level home boasts water views from most rooms. The plot is generous as well. At 0.81 acre, this is one of the largest yards in the village, so of course there’s a pool. With the beautifully updated 3,400-square-foot house, the property is asking $4 million via Mala Sander at Corcoran.
Designed for easy-going beachside entertaining, the open concept living area features double height ceilings, a fireplace, and glass doors leading to the deck, pool and grounds, which are landscaped to enhance privacy. The kitchen boasts plenty of cabinet space and countertops to create epic meals. The finished lower level features a custom eight-seat movie theatre, gym, wet bar and wine room, powder room, and tons of storage.
All three bedrooms have ensuite baths with designer fixtures, heated towel racks and heated floors. Business-minded fashionistas will gasp at the main bedroom’s massive walk-in closet, which has a private, skylight-topped staircase that climbs to a giant home office lined with bespoke built-ins.
The property also boasts two detached sheds, one of which is fully insulated and soundproofed as a music studio. (The homeowner’s son plays for a band that regularly gigs around the Hamptons.)
The house is located on Bay Street, one of the best-known in the village. The Bay Street Theater, a well-regarded local center for the arts, is located at the end, right by the harbor, and a certain well known musician, a Mr. Billy Joel, owns a landmark house on Bay Street. There are high-end designer boutiques and many interiors and antiques stores. There is also a delightful old-fashioned variety store, where one can pick up things like screws or stationery or screens, as well as fabrics and candy and pretty much anything else anyone might ever need. Fantastic restaurants, including a branch of New York’s Le Bilboquet, are nearby, and residents getting a pedicure at Bay Street’s Salon Xavier should not be surprised to find Julie Andrews at the next seat.
