The Sag Harbor Yacht Club closed on the Bay Street property known as “Camp Lucy” on Tuesday. According to Douglas Elliman, the property sold for $2.9 million.
The transaction is real bonus for Sag Harbor Village, say Douglas Elliman agents Robert Evjen and Barbara Lobosco, who represented the sellers, as the sale adds 20 parking spots for members — freeing up spaces for public use.
“Parking is critical in the Village, so to add 20 spots to the public inventory is probably one of the biggest gains yet, especially in the summertime, when the space is so desperately needed,” they say.
When reached on Monday, Chris Remkus, the secretary/treasurer for the Sag Harbor Yacht Club, confirmed the club had bought the property. “However, any future plans for it are yet to be determined,” said Mr. Remkus in an email.
Located at 42 Bay Street, across the street from the Yacht Club, the property hit the market in February, listed for $4.2 million. Named for artist Louisa Chase’s mixed-breed husky, Camp Lucy is a .75-acre parcel with two-story main house and art atelier, accessed via walkway and treetop sky bridge, and also features a summer room structure, pool, harbor views and a large L-shaped landscape.
