Sag Harbor is a unique place unsurpassed in historic charm. This quaint seaside gem offers a balance of family fun, luxury amenities and simple relaxation.

Officially founded in 1707, Sag Harbor became one of New York’s main Ports of Entry and a world famous whaling town. Fast forward to the 21st century, and Sag Harbor’s Main Street continues to flourish with modern-day boutiques, exquisite restaurants and hip art galleries.

Whether you live here full-time or spend the weekend, the offerings are many. From a visit to the old Whaling and Historical Museum with the kids to a star-studded show at Bay Street Theatre and sunset cocktails at B. Smith’s, you will not be disappointed. Sag Harbor has attracted and inspired many artists and writers over the years, from John Steinbeck to Billy Joel to Gahan Wilson, and the list goes on.

Presently, the development of the historic Bulova Watchcase factory is creating quite the buzz. This once dilapidated facility stands as a shining example of architectural genius. “The Watchcase property is bringing a lot of excitement and interest to the village—it’s a very positive addition to Sag Harbor. We have a diverse group of buyers that includes both full-time and seasonal residents. The resort-like amenities are incredible,” shared Cee Scott Brown, of The Watchcase Team.

Luxury amenities include: doorman, concierge, porters, pool and gym attendants a full-time superintendant, as well as optional additional perks such as housekeeping and car service.
