It may only be December, but we're already planning ahead—dreaming?—for this summer. And we wouldn't mind at all spending our warm weather months, and a few of the colder ones, too, in this three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath house in Sagaponack.
Judging from the pics, which are tempting, indeed, it looks to be well-kept and cozy (thanks, in part, to several fireplaces). It's not one of those enormous Hamptons estates we sometimes moon over, but the price isn't gargantuan either: $920,000, less than the average price for a Manhattan apartment.
The main floor of the house has a living room with a woodburning fireplace, formal dining room, den, half-bath, and kitchen (that could use some updating, sure).
But that same kitchen leads to a deck and large, private backyard, and that nearly required Hamptons accessory—a pool.
The second level has a master bedroom with another woodburning fireplace and an en-suite bath, two additional bedrooms, and a second full bath. The house also has a detached, one-car garage.
Plus, the Village of Sag Harbor—which is only a mile away—is one of the most charming parts of the Hamptons, complete with that still-somewhat-artsy vibe. You can bike to the village or nearby bay beaches.
