Sagaponack Art Barn, Estate of the Day
This Sagaponack barn is the home, studio and gallery of artist Sydney Butchkes. Newsday's Real LI reported that Butchkes bought this property back in the 1960s for just $15,000. Butchkes creates abstract art and sculptures which have appeared in shows and on album covers and book jackets.
The two-bedroom, two-bathroom property was built in the 1840s and retains its rustic charm with wide-plank floors but also now has radiant heat for comfort. The second-story loft has peaked ceilings with exposed beams and double doors. It's currently decorated in an artsy, bohemian style. Much of Butchkes' art can be seen in the home. The home is on 3.4 acres and is listed for $5.5 million with Beate Moore of Sotheby's Realty.
