Candace Bushnell's Sag Harbor Village Farmhouse Is Simple and Swine-Free (for Now)



Sex and the City writer Candace Bushnell has traded her West Village apartment for a Sag Harbor farmhouse.After months of controversy, a building moratorium, and a few lawsuits, Sag Harbor Village passed a zoning law in April that limits the size of homes on lots of 6,250 square feet or more. The legislation caps a house on a 6,250-square-foot plot at 2,500 square feet and one on 25,000 square feet or more at 4,000 square feet. Not that this would concern Sex and the City writer Candace Bushnell, who recently traded her West Village apartment for a diminutive, 1,300-square-foot circa-1800 farmhouse on a third of an acre at 422 Main Street. Bushnell, who is apparently much more of a farm girl than Carrie Bradshaw, reportedly wants to keep horses on the property, which she purchased for $680,000. But she’d better check the local code before trading her Manolos for Hermès riding boots, as village law prohibits “the keeping of swine and horses.”
