Penthouse In Sag Harbor? And a Historic One, At That.
Posted by Lorraine Randazzo — February 22, 2009
Sag Harbor, NY (February 2009) - Third floor penthouse apartment - unique, one-of-a kind, sleek, modern, SoHo loft on Main Street in Sag Harbor Village, Long Island.
This unique space (3,300’ of living space and 650’ of outside decking), located in the heart of Sag Harbor, is in a building that dates back to about 1832. It is thought to be the oldest business building in the village. Most of the other old commerical buildings were lost in the terrible fire of 1845 when nearly one hundred wooden structures were reduced to ashes. In the 1940's R.C. Barry & Son Home Furnishings occupied the building and used the attic (now the condo) for storage space. In 1968, the Wharf Shop moved in to the ground floor and the attic underwent a major renovation.
The next update took place around the mid-1980's when the 3rd floor duplex apartment was designed and built by a local architect, Harry Fischman, who lived here until 2006. Of note are the impressive exposed beams in the main living space which are made of 150 year old wood. And several of the bedrooms have floors made of 150 year old pumpkin wood which is now extinct. There is a water view from the front and a winter water view from the back, plus a 1-car garage and 2 parking spots.. Ideal location in the heart of the Village, stones throw from the harbor Available for rent and sale. Web#18277. EXCLUSIVE. $2,495,000
