REGRETS AS HOUSE HAS BEEN SOLD. NO RENTALS POSSIBLE.
Situated on a private drive, south of the highway, in Bridgehampton, NY, this Gene Futterman original features a secluded flower garden and lawn that slope down to the western shore of Sagg Pond. For the adventurous (or those who would prefer simply to avoid the hassle of summer parking) a canoe trip to Sagg Main Beach from the property shore is a lovely way to view the swans, geese, cormorants, and sandpipers who will be your intimate neighbors at this private oasis. Sunrises unfurl over the pond to the east, sunsets over the vast (and protected!) potato fields to the west. Views of both are readily available from the open eat-in kitchen and vault-ceilinged dining area. In addition to four bedrooms--one master, two guest (accessible via separate stairways from the ground floor), and a discreet guest suite off the kitchen (all three of which areas have their own full bath)--the house welcomes the visitor with a vault-ceilinged foyer, at the end of which sits a well-tempered Baldwin baby-grand. Two steps down from the foyer, lie the spacious yet intimate sunken living room and private study. All rooms offer stunning views of the pond, garden, potato fields, and natural world outside. The house also offers a large pool with a private, beautifully landscaped pool area, and tiered decks--both sheltered (for rainy days) and open (for sun-lovers). Built and maintained with thoughtfulness and love - and brand-new to the rental market -this house must be seen and experienced.
I have been living full time out in Sag Harbor since 2000 but my mother first started bringing us here for summer's in the late 1960s. She bought this house is 1978 from the illustrious architect, Gene Futterman, and has been enjoying its wonders since then.
My mother's passing earlier this year obliged me to leave a building project and my beloved guru, Babaji, at the Sonoma Ashram in Sonoma, California and get her house in shape for your summer enjoyment.
For years people have enjoyed my house in Sag Harbor, aptly titled 'The Jewel of Sag Harbor' (please take a look, but don't get too attached as it is rented through September 2013) and now I have the opportunity to create another jewel on Sagg Pond. While I am still polishing (brick and tile work, tree removal for views across AG reserve, etc.) the house is transforming from a rough-cut to a precious gem.
I hope you get to enjoy it this summer.
My family had been coming out to the East End for summers since the late sixties, first via Chicago and then via Manhattan. In the mid seventies my mother grew tired of city life and decided to move out here permanently. She purchased this property from Gene Futterman - one of the '80s 'Great Three' Hampton's architects - in 1978. They consumed a considerable amount of gin before a deal was struck, neither one of them imagining that this little acre would become one of the most coveted spots out on the South Fork. My mum chose this property because it was informed by farm fields on one side and Sagg Pond on the other. It was her oasis, where she could host her annual Jazz Party for hundreds and sit alone the following day, practicing on the grand piano or admiring all the birdlife in the garden.
From its beginning this house was magical, an oasis of stillness at the end of a private road on the borders of Sagaponack; the antithesis of today's gambrel roofed Hampton's McMansion. Its modest footprint belies an open-floor plan, graceful geometry, skylit light, arching ceilings and stunning water views from all rooms (except the mud room which has an amazing Helen Gifford light fixture).
While certain things have changed over the years -when my mum first moved here my brothers and I could walk barefoot along Sagg Pond through farm fields to Bridge Lane and then wind our way down to Sagg Main beach - the house remains a place of enchantment. I'll admit that the exterior walls could use re-shingling, but the architecture remains light, gracious and spirited, much like our dear mum.
Thanks for your interest.
