Glover Street Residence Sag Harbor, New York

7,400 Square Feet

Set in lovely Sag Harbor, which maintains the bucolic feeling of a New England seafaring community, this new home is nestled in one of the town’s most desired locations: tucked behind the high shrubs of a lazy street in the heart of the village, the house sits upon the banks of the Upper Sag Harbor Cove, with coveted views of water and sky.

Inspired by the details of this historic neighborhood, the house maintains a stoic, dignified presence on the street—but, on the side that faces the water, large expanses of glass opens it completely to the water vistas.

The plan of the two-story structure emulates that of its historic predecessors with one variation: well-proportioned rooms and a formal procession are eased by enlarged openings, allowing each to flow easily from one to the other. The classic detailing, paneling and moldings follow suit—perfectly scaled, they create an effect of luxury and repose.

The interior furnishings take a more decidedly eclectic route: modern pieces sit comfortably aside more traditional elements with a decidedly French flavor and are offset with the more rustic. The main rooms, being more formally arranged, are complemented by the generous open kitchen, breakfast, and family room area which spill onto the patios and gardens beyond.

The overall palette, a soothing combination of grays and neutrals, are punctuated by sophisticated patterns, textures and striking colors—all offset by a stunning and extensive collection of modern and contemporary art: including paintings, photography, mixed media, and works on paper.

The genteel traditional architecture, combined with the contemporary eclectic furnishings, decidedly strong art and extensive gardens—not to mention stunning views—creates a warm and welcome retreat, perfect for a young energetic family that loves to entertain in both formal and casual, but always great, style.
