Yes, we probably report on these houses way too often, but when they’re this gorgeously updated, what do you expect? We love old houses and we love Sag Harbor and we love when people take loving care of their old houses. This Greek Revival, on the village’s High Street, which was listed by Gioia DiPaolo at Sotheby’s, dates from 1860 and was restored in 2008 by Robert Strada Design, preserving the past while readying the house for the future. Get a load of the period woodwork, including the random width floorboards, and the copious fireplaces.
The house is unusually spacious owing to a finished lower level at 3850 square feet. There are four bedrooms, all of which are a good size and two of which sport fireplaces, and five baths. The kitchen, while slightly strangely laid out (from what we can tell) is in perfect current taste with white cabinets and gleaming white marble counters. The dining room and living room are both simple and elegant (both with fireplaces) and there’s also a TV/family room. Down below is another media space (although we’d certainly install a much bigger TV: big is how we roll). But it’s a nice space with wine storage and a good place to stash the kids.
Outside, of course the plot is typically small at 0.26 of an acre, but there are sitting areas, pretty gardens, a gunite pool, and even a doll-sized pool cabana. It couldn’t be more charming. Asking price for all this is $3.8 million.
