14 Bluff Point Road, Sag Harbor

This tiny home on Sag Harbor’s coveted Bluff Point Road is just 650 square feet with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. Located on quiet cul-de-sac on a little less than a half-acre lot, the property is the last Sag Harbor waterfront to be approved under the old zoning, and is primed for a 4,900-square-foot home with pool, if a buyer chooses to go that way. But, with a little TLC, the existing house could also be a wonderful spot for small living on the water. It has 110-plus feet of bulk-headed frontage directly on Sag Harbor Cove with expansive water views, deep-water dock and its own sandy beach. Brown Harris Stevens
