Fashion Designer Elie Tahari Relists His Oceanfront Sagaponack Home For $39M

Elie Tahari, a famed fashion designer, has put his oceanfront Sagaponack home on the market with a healthy $39 million asking price. This is not, however, the first time that Tahari has tried to offload his real estate assets in recent years. Back in October of 2017, he put his home on the market for a higher $45 million. Sited on 2 oceanfront acres of land in one of the priciest zip codes in the United States, the 4,500-square-foot retreat hosts three bedrooms and three bathrooms, an open floor plan living and dining space, hardwood floors, fireplaces, and 30-foot ceilings in the living room. Outside, there’s a pool and Russian olive trees, according to the listing. According to the Zillow price history, Tahari purchased the home in 2011 for $6,857,143. Before that, it sold in 2005 for $12.1 million. Sotheby’s International Realty agents Ann Ciardullo and Keith Green represent the listing. [Sotheby’s]

Historic Halseycot Home Wants $8M

The historic Halseycot home, located at 76 Daniels Lane in Sagaponack, was built in 1894 to be the summer residence of Stephen Bolles Halsey and his wife Adelia VanWyck Vandervoot. Stephen Bolles Halsey is a descendent of Thomas Halsey, who helped to settle Southampton, while his father Stephen Alling Halsey is the founder of the Queens neighborhood of Astoria. He also has significant links back to Josiah Stanborough, who was the first settler of Sagaponack. Owning his home would be owning an interesting piece of Long Island history. Halseycot and its “sister house,” Topping House at 791 Main Street, are frequently considered to be the last original houses that remain in Sagaponack. The classically shingled Hamptons home offers 2,346 square feet on 1.41 acres of land, six bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and one half-bathroom. Features include a wraparound porch, a 1,020-square-foot barn outside, and two separate one-story outbuildings. The listing only shows one interior photo of the kitchen, so we’re guessing the home needs some work to bring it up to date. But we hope that the new owners respect the history of the home and keep it standing rather than tear it down to make way for a bigger East End residence.

Art Collector’s Midcentury Glass House In East Hampton’s Georgica Section Sells

A classic midcentury glass house in the Georgica section of East Hampton has sold after a year and a half on the market. The house was listed for sale for $4.85 million back in July of 2018. Earlier this week, it sold and closed for $3.4 million. Once the home of art collector Robert Scull, the house was built in 1962 by Paul Lester Weiner and spans 2,800 square feet with five bedrooms and five bathrooms. Features include walls of glass, indoor-outdoor living, and a courtyard in the middle of the house. Outside, there’s a gunite pool, a detached garage, and a pool house/studio. With a full acre of land, there’s room to expand. The house needs to be updated inside, but with the right designer, the residence has the potential to be absolutely stunning. Sotheby’s International Realty agent Rylan Jacka represented the listing. [Sotheby’s]

Stunning Water Mill Home With An Indoor-Outdoor Pool Asks $9.5M

Built in 2015, the absolutely stunning home at 38 Cobb Isle Road in Water Mill has come on the market for $9,495,000. The house — designed by Southampton-based architect Mark C. Matthews — is over 6,000 square feet in size with six bedrooms, six full bathrooms, and two half-baths. Features include a double-height living room with hardwood floors, open floor plan living, and five fireplaces throughout. The most interesting aspect of the home is the indoor-outdoor pool and spa area, located off the living room. Retractable glass doors can allow fresh air in or keep the bugs out. From the second level, homeowners will enjoy water views over Mecox Bay. The incredible residence is sited on 0.91 acres of land. Compass Real Estate agent Lori Schiaffino represents the listing.

Tiny Sag Harbor Home With Potential Is Yours For $675K

Located at 34 Chestnut Street in the Pine Neck neighborhood of the Sag Harbor-Noyac area, this house is just 900 square feet in size, and it’s yours for an affordable $675. The house could be a perfect option for someone looking for a low-maintenance Hamptons retreat. Sited on just 0.11 acres of land, the house offers two bedrooms and one bathroom, an enclosed porch, and a sunroom. Outside, there’s an outdoor shower and a stone patio. The kitchen has been recently renovated and has stainless steel appliances and a great center island for food prep, while the entire home has desirable hardwood floors throughout. The exterior could use a facelift, but other than that, the home appears move-in ready. Kathleen Conway from Town & Country Real Estate represents the listing. [Town & Country]
