48 Forest Road, Sag Harbor, NY 11963

Located on the east facing shores of North Haven with picturesque sunrises across Sag Harbor Bay, this classic New England cape is steeped in gentility and elegance. High on a terraced bluff, the home sits on +-1.5 acres offering some of the most spectacular views to be found. Meticulously renovated and expanded since its original build in the 1940s, there are five bedrooms, each looking out across the water accompanied by four full and one half bath. Gracious living and dining rooms offer intimate spaces to entertain or relax while watching the boats pass by, and a more casual den is inspired by the nautical nature of the setting. Three of the bedrooms are found on the main floor, all with exceptional harbor views. Upstairs, a generous guest suite is complimented by the extensive primary suite which includes sitting area, office, large walk in closet and and an expansive primary bath. Outside, there is a truly unique waterside heated gunite pool with 50' lap lane set amongst hand-laid stone terraces. On reaching the base of the property, a bulkhead provides not only security from the seas, but a platform for the never-to-be-replicated boathouse cabana. Below that is 200' of sandy beach, and a best-in-class 240' dock out to deep water where one can tie up a very large boat and their own personal seaplane, or simply sit and watch magical sunsets. There is of course ample room to expand, and a new build would allow for two very large levels above grade, with an additional walkout lower level. This is a fantastic opportunity on what is quickly becoming one of the most prestigious waterfront addresses to be found. Be in for summer.
