Among the Hamptons open houses this weekend are three chances to scope out your next property, including none other than author John Steinbeck’s house. Located in Sag Harbor Village, the home at 2 Bluff Point Lane provides buyers with waterfront views, as well as meticulous design and detail inside.

The home, listed for $15.4 million, is represented by Doreen Atkins of Sotheby’s International Realty. The previous asking price was $17.9 million.

The two-bedroom, two-bathroom cottage, includes a living room, with wainscoting and cathedral ceilings, bookcases lining a wall and French doors on the other. This living space also has a fieldstone fireplace. The kitchen of the home overlooks the water, and, “the library loft of the home is the ideal place to relax,” according to the listing.

Separate from the main space is “John’s Writing House,” a special nook overlooking Morris Cove and Upper Sag Harbor Cove for breathtaking sunset views. There is also a 60-foot dock.

The property also holds a pool.

Open houses will be held on Friday, August 26, Saturday, August 27 and Sunday, August 28 from 3 to 5 p.m.
