We recently reported on a burst of sales activity in North Haven, and, apparently, its neighbor, Sag Harbor, did not want to be left out because it too is reported to be busy.

Let’s begin with a bit of history, 168 Main Street in the Historic District of the village. Though it has not yet closed, we’re told there is a buyer for the renovated Greek Revival residence, with the last ask reported to be $5.5 million. Originally built for the renowned whaling ship outfitter William H. Cooper, this 5,421-square-foot home has generous public rooms and five fireplaces including a high-end kitchen and adjoining media lounge area. The four bedroom suites on the second floor include a large master with dressing room, large bath, and vaulted ceilings. The rear of the house includes a trellis-covered terrace with access to the heated pool and expansive lawn. Nearby is the pool house with fireplace and bathroom. The property has tailored landscaping and borders a protected greenbelt offering even greater privacy.

Cooper, by the way, was the father of Annie Cooper Boyd. Her house just up the street, at #174, is now a museum and is the headquarters of the Sag Harbor Historical Society.

Budd and Jane Goldman are the new owners of 9 Clearview Drive, on the outer edge of the 11963 zip code. For $5.87 million, they now have a 6,125-square-foot house on 0.61 acre, and with it, sunset views with private staircase to a private bulkheaded waterfront. A full-size heated waterside pool is also part of the new-construction package.

Closer to the village is 41 Cliff Drive, in the Bay Point section, which has just been sold to a limited liability company for $5.4 million. The new owner must see a lot of potential in the 1,288-square foot, three-bedroom and one-bath cottage on 0.32 acre with views of Foster Memorial Beach and sunsets to the west. And extra amenity is actually being able to stroll down a path to the causeway where, after making sure to look both ways, you can cross over to the beach.
