Of course, one of the wonderful things about Sag Harbor village’s housing stock are the ancient homes with tons of charm. But if a buyer prefers a more open style (let’s face it, our ancestors were more interested in being warm than in having huge open spaces), this barn-style post and beam, listed by Ryan Struble and Brendan Skislock of Douglas Elliman, is a great choice. The asking price of $1.998 million seems reasonable to us, given all the features of the place.

It’s well-located, in the middle of the village and walking distance to bay beaches. There’s a reasonable third-of-an-acre property, which includes a pool, pool house and even a koi pond.

The barn style looks fresh to us, and the interiors have been recently renovated.

The whitewashed beams are an attractive feature that aren’t too imposing. One drawback is the skimpy number of bedrooms: just three, along with 2.5 baths and two fireplaces in 2750 square feet. Another nice touch is the private deck off the master suite overlooking the yard–perfect for morning coffee.

As far as comps go, this property is squarely in the middle of prices in the area, so we think it’s fairly well priced. Let us know what you think in the comments.
