This introductory brokerbabble for this Sag Harbor home's listing is too awesome not to reproduce in its entirety:
"In 1815 Andrew Jacksons troops defeated the British, Napoleon met his defeat at Waterloo and U.S. Marines stormed the shores of Tripoli. That same year, in much calmer waters, in the soon to be bustling whaling village of Sag Harbor, a perfectly wonderful Greek Revival home completed construction on the corner of Union & Main as a manse for the minister of the adjacent Methodist church."In the two centuries since it was built, the home has swelled in size and is now 5700 sq. ft. The updated residence offers eight fireplaces, a new kitchen, an artist's loft and finishable basement. The half acre property itself boasts?no way!?a heated gunite pool and a detached garage. Under normal circumstances, this would be an enviable location. The home is close enough to the village to make a trip there walkable, but far enough away to make the summer crowds a non-issue. However, with the Bulova construction and renovation to the library (this is located directly across from it) wreaking havoc on traffic, parking and curb appeal, we don't expect this place will move anytime soon. The seller is either going to have to wait until the hubbub dies down or dramatically lower the price to entice potential buyers into overlooking the construction going on outside their window.
