A Modern “Sleeper” on Deerfield Road

The 5,000-square-foot modern at 2828 Deerfield Road in Sag Harbor is what listing agent Enzo Morabito calls “a sleeper.”

But, at one time, it was neither of those things.

“It used to be a contemporary that rendered itself perfectly to becoming a modern home — it has the same kind of lines that everybody’s copying — and they totally gutted the whole house and went in and put in all high-end finishes, like a modern home,” Morabito said of the 2014 renovation. “It fits right into what everybody else is building right now, the trend. It’s a brand new house.”

The circa-1988 seven-bedroom, six-and-a-half-bath on 2.2 acres — listed at just shy of $3.5 million with Douglas Elliman Real Estate — now revolves around an open floor plan with a grand foyer with views of the backyard, walls of windows and skylights, a living room with a double-height ceiling and fireplace, a master suite with a fireplace and balcony that overlooks the pool and gardens, and a Scavolini Italian designer kitchen.

“I love that kitchen. I was raised in Italy, so I love that minimalist Bauhaus type of a look. It’s really pretty, really simple, really elegant,” Morabito said. “It’s a nice home. They went at it — they really, really went at it. And I think when someone sees it, it’s gonna disappear.”
