Camp Lucy—the property at 42 Bay Street in Sag Harbor which was named after the late owner’s mixed-breed husky—has recently listed for sale under Douglas Elliman agents Barbara Lobosco and Robert Evjen for $4.2 million.

On three-quarters of an acre of land, the address is the second-largest residential property currently on the market in Sag Harbor village, previously owned by artist Louisa Chase and, before her, artist Susan Rothenberg.

Standing 3,500 square feet in size, the home was once a fisherman’s saltbox in the 1880s. Louisa Chase, a neo-expressionist painter, also had a property in Springs, which found a buyer last year for just under $1 million.

The home’s namesake has a sculpture on the L-shaped property, which is host to a two-story main house, an art atelier accessed by a walkway and a treetop sky bridge, a pool, and water views out to the harbor. Architect Lee Skolnick designed the two-story artist’s studio to the property when Susan Rothenberg owned it back in the ’80s.

According to a Douglas Elliman representative, the three-bedroom, two and a half-bathroom home has a window in the master bedroom that was “built with the moon’s progression across the night sky in mind.”

Currently owned by former London-based art dealers, the property has zoning with allowances for development. Both structures on the property can be expanded or renovated—or, as the listing suggests, used as a bed and breakfast.
