Queen Anne for Sale or Rent

140600_16THIS 1890s QUEEN ANNE IS JUST ABOUT PERFECT, as far as I’m concerned. Why? Well, because:

It combines seclusion and convenience. It’s in the hip, historic village of Sag Harbor, but surrounded by a thick hedge. When you’re there, you’re unaware of the outside world.

It’s a solid, year-round 4 BR house with a limestone fireplace, yet it’s directly across the street from a wonderful bay beach, with water views from the upstairs windows.


The landscaping is lush but low-maintenance.

There’s a separate, totally delightful backyard studio, above, made up of salvaged windows and barn doors (renting artists have set up their easels there; it would also eliminate any excuse for writer’s block), and an outdoor shower affixed to a tree.


The house, which was in rough shape when owners Eric Anderson, an architect, and Hali Breindel, a photographer/stylist and psychotherapist, bought it 10 years ago, has been sensitively and charmingly remodeled. Among myriad other things, they added on a huge, sunny, glassed-in living room at the rear, encircled by French doors and oversized windows.

It’s cozy for family living yet expansive for entertaining (the dining room, with a coffered beadboard ceiling, seats 12). The kitchen is vintage in style but up-to-the-minute in function.


It’s reasonably priced for what it is — see listing and more pictures here or here. The house is also available for rent — see rental listing (and still more pictures) here.

    Okay Cara…
    Cute house…there! I “gushed”.

    No really, it looks like a GREAT place to live.

    See. You should have gone into a roommate situation as I suggested a bunch of months ago and gotten yourself something like this! “How come you don’t listen?” (voice of the ancestors)…

    I know…living alone has a lot of plusses!

    A bit over my budget but I’m always up for an outdoor shower.
