The Skinny: Located in one of Sag Harbor's historically black communities?Azurest?this "Zen-like structure" recently changed hands after a little more than a year on the market. The two-bedroom "Zen-like structure" offers an open floor plan, skylights over the kitchen and bathrooms, extra tall windows that complement some of the the home's extra-height ceilings, and a working wood burning stove. Besides a sense of history that dates back to the 1930s, the home also shares "a deeded private beach of white sand and clear water with mooring rights." Though finding a buyer required shaving almost 30% from the original $715K ask, it looks like the seller still did pretty well. They originally purchased the place for $144K.
