Live like a Whaling Captain (But Better) in this Sag Harbor New-build


Whaling captains of yore left us with a gorgeous legacy of antique homes in Sag Harbor. For those who aspire to live in the same style, with today’s amenities and a lot less blubber, there’s this really attractive new-build right in the village. Marketed by the Avigdor-Peyton Team at Douglas Elliman, the property is available for $4.5 million.

The 4,185 square foot house (including finished lower level) boasts a generous five bedrooms and 5.5 baths. Just past the entry is the great room with fireplace, built-ins, bar (perfect after those long sea voyages), and a kitchen with marble counters.

There’s also a covered porch with outdoor fireplace as well as a den. Upstairs are three bedrooms including a lavish master suite and a laundry room; the lower level includes a rec room and entertainment area, another guest suite with bath, a laundry and room for a gym. The backyard makes the most of the 0.24-acre plot with a petite gunite pool and a patio.

We do think the property–though it offers a lot in the hot hot Sag Harbor market–could probably come down a bit in price to make it more competitive. In all, though, it’s a good size with a pool and there’s nothing to do but move in.
