The Craftsman vibe is still strong in this home built near the turn of the 19th century and is in context with its location in the Historic District, which contains many fine examples of classic architectural styles.

The nuts and bolts

.89 acres          

3,875 square feet

4 bedrooms, convertible to 5

4 bathrooms; 1 half bath

House proud

Originally a 1910 Arts and Crafts cottage, this home has undergone a complete renovation that increased its volume, modernized it for contemporary living and further expansion, and added amenities inside and out. It includes two legal accessory buildings: a pool house and a two-car garage.

“This is a solidly constructed house in the Historic District and it’s a great find,” says Mala Sander, the Corcoran listing agent representing the property. “This is a huge parcel with a majestic setting really set back from the street and with a ton of entertaining space.” 

What’s the plan?

The entry foyer provides access to the living room and a hallway leading to a bedroom, den and opening up into the kitchen. Beyond the kitchen is a private primary bedroom suite with a gas fireplace, cathedral ceilings and a large bathroom with a soaking tub, marble counters on the double vanity and a marble shower bench. The living room also leads to the dining room and a 374-square-foot screened porch. A covered side entrance offers access to a mudroom adjacent to the kitchen.

Upstairs are two additional bedrooms both of which have an ensuite bathroom. A 742-square-foot open space is currently used as a sitting area and office, but Sander says could be converted to a bedroom that would share a bathroom with one of the other bedrooms. There’s a second laundry room on this floor.

The 2000-square-foot semi-finished lower level has polished concrete floors, high ceilings and has been prepped with electric and plumbing already in place. 

What’s cooking?

The kitchen features Wolf dual ovens, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Miele dishwasher and a three-quarters dish drawer by Fisher & Paykel and a wine fridge. The custom cabinetry includes a built-in china cabinet and wet bar, topped by leathered granite. The center island contains storage, a prep sink and seats four. The nearly 90-square-foot butler’s pantry is large enough to use as a second prep kitchen. The custom door between the kitchen and dining room features horizontal window panes and hardwood finishings. The wide-plank white oak floors lend a warm country touch.

What else?

There’s a three-season screened porch, with a bluestone tile floor, which can be all-year-round if fitted with storm windows. The generous patio features a custom built-in outdoor kitchen and a built-in fire pit. In the upstairs hallway, built-in bookshelves with storage cupboards offer attractive storage space, leading to the open-format sitting area/home office.

Amenities and more

The home has a 18 x 40 heated saltwater pool, and a pool house with a lounge area, half bath and an outdoor shower. The pretty backyard, designed by Landscape Details, features leafy trees, privacy shrubs and generous lawn. There’s fire inside and out: a built-in fire pit on the patio and a wood-burning fireplace in the living room. 

One cool thing (or two) 

  • The home has several porches and terraces, including a front wrap-around porch 
  • One of the guest bathrooms features an open shower made of vintage-style glass blocks that echo its Arts & Crafts origins

Agent’s callout 

“This had been a historic structure in the village with very distinct qualities on the street side that have been respected and maintained,” Sander says.

Location, location, location

Sag Harbor is not only a boater’s paradise, but also is a cultural hub, says Sander. “It’s a year round town that doesn’t roll up the sidewalks after Labor Day.”

Palmer Terrace is .5 miles from Main Street Sag Harbor, which is home to the landmarked Old Whalers Church, the Old Fort historic site, Sag Harbor Whaling & Historical Museum, opening for the season on May 1, and The Church arts center. The locals also offers places to spend time with mother nature: It’s .8 miles from Upper Sag Harbor and Morris coves, and Mashashimuet Park, with playgrounds, hiking trails, tennis courts and green space, 1.5 miles from Long Pond Greenbelt at Round Pond, a walkable nature preserve.
