Sag Harbor, NY, USA
Neither Frenchman Joseph Fahys, who began construction in 1881 of his watch case factory nor Austrian Joseph Bulova, who succeeded him in the mid 1930's, continuing for 40 years to manufacture his iconic brand, could have envisioned what would rise from this historic structure just one block to the heart of Sag Harbor Village. But today the Watchcase Factory, brilliantly repurposed as a luxury condominium complex, providing a unique combination of residences and amenities unparalleled in the Hamptons today, offers one unique residence for someone looking for that rare, ultra-high-end carefree, experience. Redesigned from two, third floor apartments by the renowned firm of Ascher-Davis with stunning interiors by Barbara Davis, this 2418 sq. ft., 2 bedroom, 3 bath condo offers three sided exposure, through 23 large double hung windows, that flood the home with natural light, modulated by automatic shades throughout. Characterized by soaring beamed ceilings, a glorious kitchen, exquisite detailing with numerous built ins and an open floor plan, this beautiful home allows access through three windowed doors to 2 terraces and one balcony, which includes glimpses of the harbor. The 30' X 30' great room stretches to the 18' X 11' media room warmed by its own fireplace. The gorgeous 22' X 16' master suite with expansive closets and luxurious bath is joined by another bedroom suite currently used as an office. The residence comes with a private one car garage with additional storage and one additional nearby space in the underground garage that leads directly into the lobby. With the possibility of purchasing the furnishings separately, a new owner could begin using their new retreat immediately. Residents benefit from elite services and hotel-style amenities, including a concierge and a resident manager. Acclaimed designer Steven Gambrel, has seamlessly interwoven the industrial history of the building with state-of-the-art interior design elements that enhance common rooms that include stunning lobby living room, coffee/wine bar and the reception center. Outside the heated salt water pool is serviced by the Watchcase Pavilion which is home to the club room with fireplace and catering kitchen for recreation or private events, fully outfitted gym, yoga room and a pair of locker rooms each with its own sauna. With proximity to shops, restaurants and the marinas of a village in the midst of an amazing renaissance, this impeccably appointed residence deserves your attention today.
