SPRING IS HERE, and country/beach/summer-house shopping is gearing up. Here are a couple of listings to consider if you’re in the market for something small in the ever-desirable village of Sag Harbor, on Long Island’s South Fork. Above, in the heart of the intact 19th century historic district, a tiny (1 BR, 1 bath) cottage of 581 square feet, with an ask of 595K. Call it a pied-a-terre, think of it as a condo. It’s conceivable you could live here without a car, jitney-ing from NYC to the village and walking everywhere, to shops, beach, restaurants.
Rather pricey, but mighty cute. Photos of kitchen and bath are below, and the full listing is here.
THE SECOND ONE, below, with an asking price of 499K, reminds me of my own place in Springs. It’s an unprepossessing cedar-shingled cottage of indeterminate age — perhaps 1930s or ’40s, with updated windows and with a cathedral ceiling in the living room — with a tad over 1,000 square feet of space.
It’s got 3 BR, 1 bath, on 1/2 acre just outside the historic district but still within the official village of Sag Harbor; it’s set back from the road in a quiet neighborhood a block from a body of water called Upper Sag Harbor Cove. You’ll find the listing here.
