It’s time to revisit Sag Harbor and its surroundings, and we see that sales remain brisk there. West of the village is 37 Noyac Bay Avenue, which a buyer shielded by a limited liability company has purchased for a handsome $8.5 million, according to the Long Island Real Estate Report.

The 4,485-square-foot house on 1 acre has four bedrooms and five baths, and the property has 200 feet of bulkheaded waterfront. Expansive bluestone patios and a waterside pool overlook panoramic views of Noyac Bay and Shelter Island Sound, with the most spectacular sunsets available on, of course, clear days. “Manicured lawns and specimen trees greet you on arrival,” we’re advised, “while a gently sloping lawn leads to two sets of stairs down to your own private beach. You can tie up your boat at the protected community marina less than 500 feet down the street, just across from the beach club.” Inside the home, one wing features a double height vaulted great room with water views and sunporch, while a den, kitchen, formal dining, butler’s pantry, and attached three-car garage are across the central entry foyer. Upstairs, the master suite offers views across the water. A junior master and two guest bedrooms complete the second level. The full basement features a cedar closet and wine room and is ready to be finished to add additional living space.

Within the village, 27 Suffolk Street—also known as the Captain Osborne Edwards House—has been sold to Wilson and Kathryn Huberty for $6.5 million. The 5,200-square-foot residence, originally built in 1854, has six bedrooms and six baths. The structure was just completely redone and restored by the designer Steven Gambrel and Timeless Homes Ltd. with all the 21st-century conveniences. Amenities include cedar exterior siding with hand-split cedar roof, custom mahogany double-glazed windows, lead-coated copper gutters, and waterworks fittings throughout. There are three floors of living space including six fireplaces, antique pine floors, and a geothermal system throughout. The kitchen has marble counters, marble sink, premium appliances including a French Lacanche range, and a fully equipped butler’s pantry. The master suite has imported marble bath, and there is a totally finished lower level with 10-foot ceilings, pub room, and fireplace. Outside are a saltwater pool and an entertainment pavilion.

One more in Sag Harbor is 258 Main Street—also known as the L’Hommedieu House—which has just changed hands for $4.1 million. New owner Robert Russell now has a 5,140-square-foot manse on 0.38 acre with five bedrooms and 3.5 baths. The Federal brick townhouse is on Main Street’s iconic “Captains Row.” Originally built in the 1840s, the residence has been restored by the architect Samuel White. Upon entering, one encounters a grand entry, a sweeping staircase, a front parlor, and a formal dining room with fireplace. Original oversized windows with classic details and interior shutters throughout the house flood the interior with natural light. The high ceilings, intricate trim work, and wood floors accentuate the charm of this home. The eat-in kitchen with top-quality finishes and appliances overlooks the garden conceived by the landscape designer Deborah Nevins. The master suite has a sitting area with fireplace, a separate wing has two bedrooms plus a full bath. There is a third-floor loft with a living room/media room, an office, playroom, and yoga studio, and on the ground floor with its own private entrance there is a suite of bedrooms and a full bath. Outside is a heated saline pool and dining area under a wisteria pergola.
