Historic waterfront house on one of the Sag Harbor coves. The wide lawns lead from a hammock to a dock with 5 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 in the garage and walk to Sag Harbor village for the restaurants, shopping, and theater, or catch the Hampton Jitney to New York City.
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.
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.
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 5' 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 garage where you can leave 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.
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.
