For one Sag Harbor property owner, it’s go big and go home

Sag Harbor Village officials are allowing a new house to continue seeking approval — despite the fact that it’s larger than the limit of 4,000 square feet that the town set in March. The owner wants to build a roughly 5,300-square-feet home in the increasingly popular Ninevah Beach neighborhood. Speaking in front of the village board, the homeowner’s architect Peter Cook argued that because the proposed home is on two merged lots that total 44,751 square feet it should be allowed to move forward. Cook said that the space could easily fit two 3,700-square-foot houses. He said the home was in keeping with the scale of the neighborhood. Opponents, however, disagreed, saying that average home sizes are far smaller and that allowing an exception to the new size limits sets a dangerous precedent. But the house still needs a thumbs-up from the Architectural Review Board. Until then the battle continues.  [East Hampton Star] — Cathaleen Chen
