While Sag Harbor is no stranger to new construction, the village has yet to see anything like the development Bialsky intends to build.
“We lived on Mid Ocean Drive. We sold our home on the ocean to move to Sag Harbor with the intention to live in one of these residences. We love the boating lifestyle of Sag Harbor. It’s easy, efficient and fun. Being able to access deep water within two minutes gives us more time for adventure on the water without ever sitting in traffic.”
The buyers of the two other homes will be able to totally sidestep any requirement of driving to the water. They’ll be able to board a seaplane on Manhattan’s Upper East Side and glide to a landing 40 minutes later on the Sag Harbor waterfront.
“After landing, the owners will be met by their captain and brought directly to their personal dock,” Bialsky said. “The owners will step from their dock into their home and sip a cocktail at their rooftop private pool while admiring the sunset. They’ll have dinner at one of Sag Harbor’s waterfront restaurants. The Beacon Restaurant is just one property away. Over the next two days, the owners will enjoy all the Hamptons has to offer, whether on land or water, and fly back Sunday afternoon without ever having entered a car.”
Equicap has been a participant in the project since the initial acquisition of the property in 2005, having arranged acquisition and construction funding for the developers. Terming Bialsky “a perfect fit for this project,” Equicap founder and managing director Daniel Hilpert said shepherding the project has meant overcoming a number of hurdles. “But through the efforts of Jay Bialsky,” he said, “We’re poised to move forward with a waterfront development every bit as gracious as Sag Harbor itself.”
According to Bialsky, “Due to the rarity, this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Only two additional families will have the rare opportunity to enjoy this lifestyle.”
