Designed by one of the country's leading landscape architects, the garden at 23 Howard Street is without doubt our favorite feature. It is quiet, private and elegantly situated. Resplendent with lush mature landscaping and beautiful flowering trees and shrubs. Old stone pathways and steps, dry-stone walls and terraces, surround a delightful heated salt water pool. For evening entertaining and general ambiance, there is ample pathway, garden and tree lighting. From the first magnolia bloom to the last rosebud, the garden is truly an endless summer!
We love old houses. In 2014 after two years of planning we embarked on a total historic restoration and renovation of our home. No. 23 had provided shelter for two centuries and like many of the original homes here in Sag Harbor it was in desperate need of attention. The house was deconstructed piece by piece. Only the exterior shell, staircase and one chimney remained in place. We removed the rest, but saved every brick, stone, beam, board, door and mantle. We also salvaged as many of the original windows as was possible. Everything was restored to it's original condition and returned to it's original location. It is now an early 19th century home with a 21st century infrastructure.
All plumbing, wiring, and insulation was replaced. The main house now has four air conditioning and heating zones. All four fireplaces are open and operating. A fully hard wired fire and security system was installed with central monitoring. The pool cabana is a fully finished space with it's own heating and air conditioning zone and bathroom. The gardens, terraces and heated gunite salt water pool are spectacular!
A perfect quiet setting with a private garden, heated salt water pool, outdoor shower and cabana on 0.3+/- acres on a quiet historic street in the village - just a stroll to shops, restaurants and the harbor. 23 Howard Street is filled with paintings and antiques and offers the very best of both worlds, authentic 1820's ambiance with 2020's technology!
