After finishing “East of Eden”, writer John Steinbeck and his wife bought this beach house in Sag Harbor. The main building is a retreat for ideal writers, with parapet walls, cathedral ceilings, and a stone fireplace, while the library loft overlooks the living space. Sitting there is John‘s “Writing House”, a small pavilion-like refuge overlooking the coast, and a hotel for two people aptly called the “Cozy Cabin”. The estate is located on a 1.8-acre property with a 586-foot waterfront and a 60-foot deck, which can be used to disembark or draw a line. Click here for more details about this Sag Harbor Sanctuary.
