Back in 2017 6sqft reported on the growing trend that saw celebrities and the well-heeled-and-hip ditching the hamptons for upstate and Catskills getaways. “Real Housewives of New York” regular Luann De Lesseps must have just gotten the memo; she’s put her Sag Harbor house on the market for $6.25 million–and she’s asking $150,000 in rent for the place during August. The New York Post quotes a friend of the former countess: “She loves the Hamptons, and her house, but it’s time for a change. The Hamptons is changing, and she’s looking elsewhere to summer. She’s in love with the Catskills.”
Recently renovated in a laid-back, summery Hamptons style, this 19th Century Greek Revival waterfront home on Sag Harbor Cove offers exquisite waters views and its own private dock. Period details lend sophistication to the home’s bright and beachy interiors A professional gourmet kitchen abuts open an open dining area, three fireplaces and a gracious living room,
You’ll find water views throughout, wide plank wood floors, four bedrooms and an equal number of baths.
French doors lead to a deck and a sweeping lawn, leading right up to the water and the dock. The home’s landscaped acreage also includes a separate, fully winterized studio with a full bath.
De Lesseps bought the home $2.43 million in 2013.
