The name Sagaponack comes from the Shinnecock Indian Nation word for “land of the big ground nuts”, in reference to the Ground Nut (Apios americana). A common misconception is that the name referred to potatoes which were farmed until late in the 20th century. Many of the huge estates in the village were built on potato fields. Its first settler was Josiah Stanborough in 1656. The village was originally called Sagg.
Sag Harbor, just north of Sagaponack, is believed to have derived its name from the village. West of Sagaponack is a place that the Indians called Mecox, now a hamlet on the west side of Sagaponack Lake in the town of Bridgehampton.Description: “By far the very best oceanfront estate on the market! A modern masterpiece, incredibly custom designed by renowned Bates & Masi architects, with the most amazing views both over the ocean and freshwater pond, 3 Acres, and over 300 feet of ocean frontage! Spaces run the full width of the house with floor to ceiling sliding glass walls on both sides. The spaces create apertures through which views, light, and air completely penetrate the house, dissolving its mass. Passersby see directly through the house to the sky, pond, and landscape beyond. With the sliding doors open and recessed into the adjacent walls, interior spaces are transformed from formal rooms to open pavilions, merging seamlessly with the site. It has it all! Roof top deck with Jacuzzi, kitchen and fireplace, master with outdoor shower, oceanside pool with pool house, and even a tennis and sports court. Absolutely unique and could never be reproduced!”
