The Friends of the John Jermain Library will host their annual house tour for the benefit of the library on Friday, July 6, from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. Tickets are $50.00 in advance at the Wharf Shop on Sag Harbor’s Main Street or at the Library. On the day of the tour, tickets will be available at both locations for $55.00. This year’s house tour features five beautiful Sag Harbor homes, from modern to Victorian.
A one-story contemporary, completed last June, is composed of three rectangular volumes that form a courtyard with a private garden and pool area. The interior reflects the exterior, each of the three volumes having a distinct function. The entire house is sited so as to maximize water views.
“Go local,” at a lovely Victorian built in 2016 with modern amenities, by a couple who are Pierson High School graduates. The owners diligently researched details of an authentic Victorian, as you will see in the exterior color scheme, diamond-shape windows, eight-foot Gothic entry door, and even gas lanterns. The second-floor master bedroom has adjacent to it a bathroom overlooking a unique second story balcony. The interior is elegantly finished with a grand three-story staircase and crystal chandelier.
Glover Street, one of the most active and architecturally intriguing streets in the village, is home to a residence that was totally reconstructed just two years ago by a well-known interior decorating firm that was careful to retain the home’s authentic styling and details unique to Sag Harbor. A must-see is the dining room, bought from a Colorado museum, that was originally from an early 18th-century house in Salem, MA.
A unique modern structure designed with an artist’s eye is found off of the Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Turnpike in an enclave of several non-traditional Hamptons homes. Soaring cathedral ceilings of exposed wood post and beam throughout the home contribute to a sense of open space that integrates seamlessly with the furnishings and views of the pond and surrounding natural landscape.
A c. 1835 house that was formerly owned by Tony-and-Oscar-winning designer Tony Walton, retains elements from the Greek Revival period as well as a cross-gabled roof with carved Italianate brackets from modifications made c.1865 and typical of the Victorian Style popular at that time.
