Built 327 years ago, this charming cottage is thought to be the oldest home in Sag Harbor Village, however, it wasn’t built in Sag Harbor. According to past listings, the home was actually constructed in Sagaponack and then moved five times before settling in Sag Harbor, where it remains today at 64 Union Street and is asking $1,550,000. The original part of the house retains its exposed ceiling beams, wide-plank wood floors, and two working fireplaces. As a bonus, there’s a separate studio structure on the property that would make a great guest house.

The Amagansett Dunes is a seaside stretch of this Hamptons enclave that is full of beach cottages and casual vacation homes. And though this property at 9 Ocean Lane fits both those bills, it’s really quite unique. Designed by Bates Masi + Architects, the home is only 600 square feet due to local and FEMA regulations. However, the architects used these restraints to “explore the geometry of the building in section and how it can expand our perception of space,” according to their project page. The award-winning two-bedroom residence is now for sale $1,725,000 and it even comes fully furnished.

This picture-perfect Sag Harbor home was originally built in 1791, and a modern restoration in 2013 brought it “back to its former glory,” according to the listing. After spending some time as a $1,950/night vacation rental, the home is now on the market for $2,950,000. Inside, the three-bedroom house mixes historic bones with whimsical details, a combo that is echoed outside, where a pergola-covered dining area and secret garden surround the pool.

Sometimes the best things in life are the simplest things. And though this Long Island house isn’t exactly simple (it does have eight bedrooms, sit on three acres, and have a huge pool and a guest cottage), its traditional style and classical interiors make it a true standout. Located in Locust Valley, a quaint town that’s part of Oyster Bay, and asking $4.5 million, the colonial home was built in 1863 but underwent a modern renovation that’s brought it into the 21st century.

Designed by Calvin Tsao and Zack McKown of renowned contemporary firm Tsao & McKown Architects, this residence is one of the original Houses at Sagaponac, a modernist development conceived in the early 2000s by developer Harry “Coco” Brown and architect Richard Meier. The original plan was for 32 homes to be built by different prominent architects, but after Brown’s death and the recession, only eight were completed, making them even more special. This five-bedroom home utilizes moveable glass walls and oversized windows to take in views of the surrounding greenery and incredible 60-foot pool and sun deck.

Billionaire investor, art collector, and gallery owner Adam Lindemann has dropped the price of his Montauk mansion to $15.5 million. He originally listed the sprawling property in 2015 for $29.5 million. Earlier that same year, Lindemann bought another nearby property that had once belonged to Andy Warhol and was listed for $85 million. His “smaller” estate is a 7,500-square-foot, traditional wood-shingled estate that sits atop the Montauk bluffs. In addition to its incredible shoreline views and three-acre lot, the home was renovated by architect David Adjaye. The interiors are fabulous, and the grounds boast a large heated pool and jacuzzi, several covered and uncovered patios, and a private staircase leading down to a secluded cove. Adding to the selling points is that it’s available fully furnished, including some of the high-end contemporary art.
