Location: Sag Harbor, New York
Located on a full acre of verdant, private land near a pond and cove, this circa-1900 Victorian in the Sag Harbor Historic District is a real Hamptons dream. Let's start from the exterior, where you'll find a sumptuous heated saltwater pool surrounded by brick pathways and patios—a "classic Hamptons pool area" deems the listing. A little ways up are cascading stone terraces that lead up to a charming antique wraparound porch. Inside, the foyer with impressively restored moldings open up to a front parlor with fireplace, wainscoted dining room, living room with another grand fireplace, and library with gorgeous built-ins.
As for the the spaces particularly vulnerable to wear and tear and obsolescence—that is, the kitchen and bathroom—the owners have made sensible updates. The renovated eat-in chef's kitchen features marble countertops and a suite of new appliances, including a Lacanage range from France. The master suite, which has a rad tile fireplace, comes with a spacious bathroom redone to include its own steam and sauna. Last sold for $2.25M in 2010, the four-bedroom, 5,000-square-foot home is now on the market for $5.75M after the recent renovation.
