We really like the work of New York- and Oslo-based designers Heiberg Cummings Design. They’ve recently done their Euro-style magic on two Sag Harbor cottages: one at 8 Ackerly Street, now in contract at a last asking price of $3M; the other at 38 Howard Street, which sold within weeks.
At 38 Howard, Heiberg and Cummings paid $1.06M in 2015; the asking price was $2.25M, and the place sold for $2.05M.
The property really is small, at just 1200 square feet, on 0.10 of an acre. But what there is is exquisite. Built in 1840, the house has been opened up for modern living but kept vestiges of the past, like the Dutch door in front and the Rumsford fireplaces (now gas). The kitchen and baths are all high-end (Bertazzoni range; walnut-topped counters). Outside is a fountain (love that) with a bluestone patio and a building with a sauna (so Norwegian) and a mahogany terrace, along with romantic flickering gas lanterns. We’re not at all surprised this property found a buyer so quickly: congrats, new owners!
