Hip Sag Harbor Pad On Market

A hip summer rental in Sag Harbor Village is now on the market and Town & Country Real Estate has the listing. This pristine, circa 1920 Main Street residence was recently renovated and decorated in a Hamptons chic style, with a nod to the historic nature of Sag Harbor’s charm.

The 3000-square-foot traditional home comes with quite a legendary history. As with most tall tales that come out of Sag Harbor, it’s said that in the 1920s a Sag Harbor resident built a modern stucco home on the generous .63-acre site. The gentleman, a true entrepreneur in the times of prohibition, was rumored to be into “rum-running” and had a three-bay garage built on the property for that purpose. Rumor has it that he made quite a fortune supplying Southampton and East Hampton with spirits during the Roaring Twenties. One can only imagine him zipping up and down the Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Turnpike to make his midnight deliveries.

Offering a spacious living room with fireplace, paneled dining room, large, top-of-the-line kitchen with center island and breakfast area, Kangen alkaline water filter, five bedrooms, and four bathrooms, the home is built for entertaining. Manicured grounds set the stage for a heated gunite pool and luxurious cabana complete the easy summer vibes. A detached two-car garage completes the site to perfection.

Located in the heart of the historic district, this truly unique house is a true Sag Harbor landmark on Main Street, just a few blocks to shops, restaurants, galleries, Pilates, yoga, marina, and everything else the waterfront village has to offer.

Murf’s On The Market

Time was when you could go into the quaint little tavern behind Main Street in Sag Harbor and meet Murf the owner, get served by Murphy the bartender, and sit next to you know who.

Jay Hamel, the current owner of Murf’s Tavern, is reportedly listing the bar for a cool $3.5 million. The broker, Lee Minetree at Saunders & Associates, has the listing. The establishment, which functioned quite nicely for 40 years, has gotten into hot water with the State Liquor Authority of late, a peculiar development considering the late night crowds and rowdiness at some of the other local watering holes.
