Sag Harbor Village And Outskirts Outperform

Feb 18, 2019 2:32 PM

Sag Harbor continues to be the little village (and its immediate surroundings) that could continue to buck the Hamptons real estate trend of a slower market.

According to the Long Island Real Estate Report, a handsome $5.4 million is what Mia and Rafael Llopiz paid for 364 Brick Kiln Road, on the southern outskirts of the village. The prize here is the property is a robust 3.65 acres, but the house designed by architect John Laffey is not too shabby at 5,972 square feet with five bedrooms. Inclusive of the main house and two accessory buildings, the total living space is 8,550 square feet.

In the village proper, 39 Suffolk Street has been sold to a limited liability company for $3.75 million. The 3,000-square-foot home on 0.25 acre has three bedrooms and three baths. Fully restored, the modern interior retains period details such as four fireplaces and wide-plank flooring. The “natural gathering spot,” we’re told, is the professional-grade kitchen with a white marble center island, casual dining for 10, sitting area, and French doors leading to a terrace with a cedar dining table. The formal living and dining spaces each feature an original fireplace. A casual media room or den off the dining room could serve as a fourth bedroom. Laundry, full bath, and mudroom complete the floor. Three bedrooms on the 2nd level include a private master suite with a study, dual custom closets, and a spa-quality bath with soaking tub. A separate pool house cottage is a space for entertaining next to the pool. Specimen trees and lush hydrangeas dot the south-facing lawn and a heated saltwater pool, lounging area with sunbed, outdoor shower, and picnic-style dining.

Back to just outside the village is 69 Highview Drive, which has just been purchased by Heather and Lawrence Yablon for $3,350,000, according to the Long Island Real Estate report. The 4,420-square-foot abode on 0.7 acre has four bedrooms and four baths. There is an open floor plan with 10-foot ceilings and a custom kitchen including separate functional working pantry, high-end appliances, and oversized island. The first floor has an additional guest bedroom/TV room. The second floor has three en-suite bedrooms with an additional office and sitting area. The lower level has a two-car garage, large kids’ playroom, and plenty of natural light. The main level walks out to a patio and heated saline pool.

Now back to Brick Kiln Road, where #252 has just been sold to Christine and Thomas Pajonas for $3.33 million. The 5,572-square-foot residence on 1 acre has five bedrooms and six baths. Features include custom-built solid wood entry doors, rough-sawn honey-cedar shingles, imported stone, a covered porch, two-story paneled foyer, and a kitchen with glass mosaic backsplash, 2-inch Carrera countertops, pot fillers, and duel commercial appliances by Viking, Wolf, Miele, and Sub Zero. Additional features such as secondary staircases, elevators, butler’s pantries, and large living rooms make up the remainder of the first-floor spaces. Upstairs are four to five bedrooms including master enclaves with spa-inspired bathrooms featuring steam showers, imported tile, and custom-built walk-in closets. The full-height lower level has a theater with stadium-style seating.

We zigged, now we zag back into the village, where 71 Jermain Avenue has been sold for $3.2 million. The 5,500-square-foot house on 1 acre has five bedrooms and five baths. As you can imagine, there’s lots of cool stuff inside the house and it’s a great village-center location, but to us very interesting is the buyer, the widow of Count Zygmunt Zamoyski of Poland. He was born in 1937 into a family that had been influential in Polish politics since the 16th century. During World War II he grew up in Dorset, England, where his mother was the headmistress of the Cranborne Chase School. After attending Oxford, Zymoyski served in the British Navy. After leaving the military, he worked as a teacher at various schools and institutions in England “all the while cultivating a well-deserved reputation for harmless eccentricity,” according to a British newspaper account.

Immediately after the Communist regime ended in Poland, Count Zamoyski (a title he inherited from his father) went to live in Poland. There he taught English as a foreign language in a town that had been founded by his family centuries earlier, then he lived in Warsaw. In 2005, he married an American, Patricia Grobow, and the Zamoyskis relocated to the Sag Harbor area. He spent his remaining years there, passing away in November 2012, shortly before his 75th birthday.
