A mid-century modern house has a traditional façade that creates an element of surprise, according to the listing for 16 East Harbor Drive on North Haven, which sits directly on the water overlooking Sag Harbor Bay. The asking price: $9,999,500. Andrea L. Ackerman and Juliana Frei of Brown Harris Stevens represent the listing.
The 4,252-square-foot home has a “modern sensibility,” the agents say. Walls of glass on the waterside afford incredible views of historic Sag Harbor Village across the bay, as well as the nearby yachts. While the home appears to be two stories from the streetside, there are actually four levels, plus a rooftop deck, a layout that maximizes privacy between the four bedrooms and water views.
Just past the entry and the modern staircase is an open living and dining area with French doors that lead the waterside deck. The kitchen, located through a pair of doors off the dining room is the kitchen with a large center island with counter seating, high-end appliances, including two dishwashers and plenty of counter space. There is access to the deck, where there is an outdoor living and eating area complete with a fireplace and barbecue. Stairs from the deck lead down to the pool.
The 1,300-square-foot first floor also is home to the first ensuite, a bathroom and a powder room. Other features of the home are radiant heating and custom tile work.
Two more bedrooms, including the primary bedroom, are found on the second floor, a 900-square-foot space with a 530-square-foot deck that wraps around two sides for further enjoyment of the water view.
The primary bedroom and bathroom, of course, face the water, while the other ensuite bedroom faces the street. Features in the primary bedroom include a fireplace, French doors to the deck and a large, 19-foot-by-6-foot walk-in closet. Its bathroom includes a standalone tub, shower, dual vanities, and a water closet, as well as doors that open to the deck.
The third floor is a 612-square-foot space that offers a loft, perfect for children’s playroom or even an office space. There is also a kitchenette and two storage closets. There are stairs to the 372-square-foot rooftop deck that boast incredible, hard-to-beat views.
Down on the lower level, there is another 1,300 square feet of living space and direct access to the infinity pool. Another bedroom can be found here with a view of the pool and bay. There is also a spacious den overlooking the pool and water with a wet bar, and a full bathroom.
The two-car, 620-square-foot garage can be accessed from this level, as it leads out to the stone driveway. The garage also offers an electric vehicle charging station.
Outside meanwhile, a stone patio wraps around the house and the 13-by-40-foot pool and spa. A grassy area extends to the 100 feet of water frontage. There is also an outdoor shower.
This 0.57-acre property offers a perfect location, not only because of its position on the water, but it is a short drive or bike ride to Sag Harbor’s restaurants and shopping,
