If any home is a drab-to-fab story, it’s 24 Pheasant Road.

The jaw-dropping transformation of the cedar-shake traditional included a top-to-bottom renovation that landed it on the Sag Harbor market, listed for $2.5 million with Douglas Elliman Real Estate.

Originally built in 1973 — and most recently owned by the late Father John Drab — the 3,350-square-foot home accommodates six en suite bedrooms, open-plan living and dining areas that lend themselves to indoor-outdoor entertaining, not to mention cozying up in front of the custom Pietra Cardosa and shiplap wood-burning fireplace.

The chef’s kitchen — outfitted with a 36-inch Subzero refrigerator, 36-inch Viking dual-fuel range and dishwasher, and a 48-bottle wine cooler — looks out to a bluestone patio and decking, a 20-foot-40-foot heated gunite pool, and a “private .81-acre sanctuary,” according to the listing.

“All three levels sparkle with an abundance of natural light and flow seamlessly via a custom staircase and railing,” the listing says of the home. “Convenience is built right in with a separate entrance to the lower level, two washer/dryer sets, a circular drive and parking for five cars in addition to the two-car garage.”
