One of the Houses at Sagaponac is Lingering on the Market


This property has been on the market for two years now, with the price gradually dropping about a million. What seems to be the issue here?

This property boasts an impeccable architectural pedigree. It’s one of the Houses at Sagaponac, an ambitious development of modern homes from the beginning of the 2000s, which was intended to serve as a museum of architecture, but never completed.

This house, represented by Scott Watson at Saunders, was designed by Hariri & Hariri, who said the house was inspired by Giacometti’s sculpture titled “Figure in a Box Between Two Boxes, which are houses.” (Um, OK.) It’s an L-shaped one-story house, with two wings surrounding a central terrace with a pool. There is 5000sf with five bedrooms and 6.5 baths. A finished lower level offers a home theater and gym, and there’s a separate guest house/art studio, as well as a two-car garage. There’s 2.72 acres of land with a tennis court.

So what’s the problem? While we think the house itself is lovely, with plenty of land and nice features, the interiors are just too cold and uninviting as decorated. That terrifying demon artwork doesn’t help.

Two, location, location, location. The house is right next to East Hampton Airport, and SORRY WHAT DID YOU SAY? YOU’LL HAVE TO SPEAK UP! That’s the major drawback of this nice property.
