The former home of acclaimed musician Richard "Dick" Hyman has hit the market and is listed at $5,249,000.

"An extremely rare bayfront property in the historic waterfront community of Northampton Shores," explained listing agent Enzo Morabito of Douglas Elliman. "The charming home once belonged to Richard 'Dick' Hyman, the famous jazz pianist and composer."

The cozy sun room.

The well-known composer - who was Benny Goodman's pianist - will be honored with the National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master Fellow this year, and served as the in-studio organist for Beat the Clock. Sunshine's on the Way, his original score, earned Hyman an Emmy. He also composed, arranged, and played in several Woody Allen films, such as The Purple Rose of Cairo, Hannah and Her Sisters, Sweet and Lowdown, Mighty Aphrodite, Radio Days, and Bullets Over Broadway.

21 Peconic Avenue in Sag Harbor, the musician's former Northampton Shores abode, was built in 1940 in the footprint of an original Victorian cottage. The 3-bed and 3.5-bath home offers incredible panoramic water views, and in addition to 100 feet of bulk-headed water frontage, the property boasts a pristinely manicured yard that has plenty of room to add a pool. The listing also includes deeded access to one of the most highly coveted, secluded Hamptons beaches that is located adjacent to the Elizabeth A. Morton National Wildlife Refuge.

The abode features a living room as well as a sun room, both of which have fireplaces that are surrounded by handmade Pewabic tiles, so you can comfortably enjoy the stunning water views all year round. Additional impressive interior highlights include a luxurious library with solid cherry bookcases and balustrade, formal dining room, and chef's kitchen with solid cherry cabinets and green granite counters. The second-story master suite offers a bayside balcony, and mahogany porches that look onto both the bay and garden side.

"I'm sure that the next owner will get as much music, magic and enjoyment out of it," added Morabito.
