Welcome to Sagaponack
An exclusive Hamptons village with picturesque views
Sagaponack is one of the most exclusive zip codes in the nation, yet it offers a decidedly quaint, rural setting. Covering less than five square miles, Sagaponack offers residents an unprecedented mix of privacy, luxury, and relaxation. Working farms dot the land, settled in between stately mansions and tony estates, and residents benefit from this agricultural setting. Farm stands sell organic produce handpicked that very morning and restaurants design menus based on local farmers’ crops.
Although originally settled back in 1656, Sagaponack remained a village within the greater town of Southampton until 2005, when residents voted to officially incorporate the small hamlet as Sagaponack Village. Known as the “land of the big ground nuts,” Sagaponack was initially named Sagg by the Shinnecock Indian Nation, who valued the “nuts” that came from the ground. Today, some farms in Sagaponack still grow those nuts, or as we call them, potatoes.
Tucked away from the bustle of nearby Hamptons enclaves, Sagaponack was made to pamper and protect its residents. Homes here are designed to be spacious and impressive, as well as secluded and private This prestigious hamlet has no need to prove itself as a hip hotspot or flashy trendsetter. Life here is peaceful and relaxed, with good, nourishing food and a taste for healthy indulgences.

People & Lifestyle
This prestigious town attracts elite residents from varying industries, such as design and finance, and these residents feel protective reciprocity to their quaint village. Author Kurt Vonnegut lived here, in a colonial saltbox house on Main Street, and credited Sagaponack with his ability to work, saying he lived and worked happily in this sleepy, peaceful town for 22 years. He and fellow residents even worked to keep overdevelopment out of the area, in order to preserve the quiet serenity they so treasured.
