From Luxury Listings NYC: Sag Harbor’s Suffolk Street is lined with well-kept wooden homes done up in classic Hamptons styles. At number 43, a 95-year-old beach tree and an historic exterior belies what is in fact completely new construction, with all of the modern bells and whistles.

The owners had originally developed the lot for themselves. They wanted to keep the home within the theme of other village residences, so they tapped Kirby Grimes, an architect well known for working on historic homes. Grimes helped give the property its paradoxical feel, by contrasting a modest historic facade with expansive-open spaces within. Even the stone slab front porch, which leads to a huge modern living space with 29-foot ceilings, is a reference to history, specifically to the stone used at the Sag Harbor Whaling Museum. [more]
