Now's a good time to lock down your Hamptons house (with a pool!)—for under $1 million

How much total do you plan to tip the building staff this year?

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.
