Barclay Drive Sag Harbor$3,495,000
Beautiful views abound from this classic shingle style home in one of the east end's most desirable communities, just minutes from Sag Harbor and Shelter Island. Set high on a knoll behind the gates of West Banks, the only actively gated community in the town of Southampton, its guard house and gates ensure privacy and security to this exclusive enclave. The community has an on site caretaker, private marina, community tennis and beach. In the interior of the home one can't help but notice the care and detail which have gone into its construction. This is a truly warm and welcoming home with a two entry foyer, large bright living room and dining room, and two exquisitely styled woodburning fireplaces. Off the living room is the library, closed off with pocket doors. Beautiful cook's kitchen boasts 6 burner gas stove, subzero refrigerator, wine cooler, and two dishwashers, pantry and laundry room. Off the kitchen is an informal breakfast/dining area with beautiful gas fired Franklin stove, family room, and covered porch, and mahogany deck with retractable awning. The large first floor master suite has separate sitting room with fireplace and French doors to bedroom. Master bath with all the amenities including fireplace. Enormous master closet with beautiful built-ins. Upstairs there is another sitting room with gas fireplace and second floor deck, a junior master suite with its own balcony and lavish bath, and two ensuite guest bedrooms. In a separate upstairs wing there are two smaller bedrooms with a shared bath which could be used for additional guests or staff quarters. In this wing this is also a generous bonus room. The rooftop 'widow's walk' is an enormous mahagony deck with incredible views. There is a full basement, partially finished, gas warm air heating (two master suites have radiant heating in the floors). Beautifully crafted and exquisite woodwork and moldings throughout. There is a changing room and bath coming in from the pool area. An attached three car garage includes hot and cold running water and a vacuum port. Off to the side of the house is a heated gunite pool with brick patio and a very short path to community tennis courts. Whether as a family retreat or as a home to entertain friends and guests, it would truly be hard to find a more gracious candidate.
