The owner of the historic L’Hommedieu house in Sag Harbor secured approval for proposed renovations — despite “strident objections” from neighbors, according to 27east. The Sag Harbor Village Historic Preservation and Architectural Review Board granted Robert Russell conditional approval for a “recreation room” on the third floor of the house on Main Street. Neighbors had voiced objections to Russell “using the third floor as habitable space,” the outlet reported. The board didn’t, however, grant approval for Russell’s plan to “re-create two long-gone chimneys” on the house, saying he needs evidence showing they existed. [27east]
