European Beauty In Sag Harbor
“It could be a house in Provence.It could be Tuscany. Pick your favorite place. Some properties in the Hamptons are synonymous with luxury and pure natural beauty. Whimsy Farms is singular. This private oasis is reminiscent of a splendid country estate somewhere in Europe. 790 Sagg Road located in Sagaponack offers 11.16 acres, comprised of four contiguous properties and is centrally situated within minutes of Sag Harbor Village.
Arriving at the property is a magical experience. From the minute you enter the driveway, a feeling of lyricism and romance draws you in, as you wind through natural meadows and the half-century-old apple
orchards, which are all, nestled through beautifully landscaped gardens. Around the corner, you are greeted with this storybook 18th-century fountain from the south of France perfectly positioned in the center of an inviting courtyard.
The elegantly landscaped courtyard leads to the gracious entrance, welcoming guests to the entertaining floor anchored by an expansive living room complete with a dramatic fireplace and 24′ high cathedral
ceiling. This spacious room adjoins a glass-enclosed sunroom overlooking the water’s edge of a 75′ long gunite pool and spa. Stairs lead to the second floor where there is a library, office, and full bath.
A tastefully modern kitchen, second kitchen, and solarium are expertly equipped to cater and entertain. On the main floor, the bedrooms are connected with a long, light flooded corridor of glass and French doors. The Master Suite bathed in natural light features a large bedroom with an exquisite fireplace looking out unto a charming sculpture garden, a massive walk-in closet and dressing room, and a windowed bathroom complete with a soaking tub. There are an additional two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and a powder room on the main floor.
A gym, pantry, wine room, an abundance of additional storage, and all of the updated house mechanicals are contained within the lower level. Additionally, the main house property includes a separate full guest suite with a private deck full bath and kitchenette above the four-car garage.
Also included, and on a separate adjoining property surrounded by the apple orchard is the charming three bedroom, three bath guest house complete with full kitchen, handsome wood floors, fireplace
and dining room which looks out onto a beautiful secret garden perfect for enjoying long lunches and great conversation. The guesthouse also adjoins a separate one-bedroom caretakers apartment complete with its own private patio.
The traditional country architecture embodies understated elegance and grand heritage while appealing to the discerning buyer looking for good value with its updated, modern amenities and move-in ready appeal. While the land is grand in scale, this property is unusual in its propensity for warmth and intimacy.”
