This Independence Day weekend, take a break from the BBQs and fireworks and join Friends of the John Jermain Library for a scenic tour of five lovely Sag Harbor homes.

"The Sag Harbor House Tour is the primary fundraiser of The Friends of the John Jermain Library - a volunteer organization whose efforts raise money to underwrite the many wonderful community programs provided at the Library," shared Toby Spitz, President, Friends of the John Jermain Memorial Library.

Taking place on Friday, July 6, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., attendees can explore a variety of architectural styles from modern to Victorian. The 2018 tour will make stops at 20 Lily Pond Drive, 115 Redwood Road, 52 Glover Street, 254 Madison Street, and 6 Beach Avenue.

20 Lily Pond Drive is a "unique modern structure designed with an artist's eye." One of its owners is a photographer whose vast collection of artwork can be seen throughout the home. The modern abode offers a hint of the Adirondacks, an airy feel with soaring cathedral ceilings with exposed wood post and beams, spectacular white oak floors, custom cabinetry, beautiful views of the pond and natural landscape, which are highlighted in the first-floor master. There is also an artist studio.

115 Redwood Road, a one-story contemporary that sits on a .6-acre lot, was constructed to maximize water views. Three rectangular volumes come together to create a courtyard, while the inside includes a master bedroom suite, guest wing located over a garage, and a spacious open concept great room that encompasses the kitchen, dining area, living room and den. The interior is embellished with midcentury furniture, paintings, sculpture and antiquities that have been carefully curated over the past four decades.

52 Glover Street is one of "the most active and architecturally intriguing streets in the Village." The home of a well-known interior decorating firm, the property was renovated a few years ago to highlight the area's charm through "antique" building materials such as reclaimed antique pine floors - which were bleached then treated with a white stain, a reclaimed marble fireplace mantle, walls plastered with layers of lime wash, a statement island in the kitchen that boasts a mosaic countertop, and more. The exceptional dining room set was purchased from a Colorado museum that was originally from an early 18th-century house in Salem, MA. The outdoor space includes a garden with striking plantings.

Located in the heart of the Historic District, 254 Madison Street was previously owned by Tony Walton, the Tony (Pippin, Guys and Dolls) and Oscar-winning (All That Jazz) production designer. Constructed around 1835, the historic King house retains aspects from the Greek Revival period with modifications made circa 1865 - like carved Italianate brackets. Its current owners, architect Karen Arrigoni and her husband, Raymond Pepi, a noted Historic Preservation Consultant, restored many of the home's original historic features, and also added a kitchen-family room wing.

6 Beach Avenue, owned by Pierson High graduates, is a Victorian built in 2016 that boasts modern amenities. The interior features a second-floor master bedroom, magnificent three-story staircase, eye-catching crystal chandelier, grandmother's clock, eight-foot Gothic entry door, gas lanterns, artwork by a historic local painter and nods to an authentic Victorian. There is also an outstanding Attic Tower.

Tickets for the Sag Harbor House Tour are $50 in advance (available at the Wharf Shop and John Jermain Library) or $55 on the day of the event.
