This three-story brick house on Sag Harbor's Captain's Row is back on the market. First, its history: the circa 1840 building, known as L'Hommedieu House can trace its ownership all the way back to a pre-revolutionary Sag Harbor family (the L'Hommedieus) known for operating "a rope walk on Glover Street." Riggers were big business back in the sailing days. The five-bedroom house is a "rare" example of Sag Harbor architecture. The American Institutes of Architects says the home "would be as much at home in Greenwich Village as in Sag Harbor."
The house has been on the market in the past few years at various price points, starting off at $5 million three years ago, then gradually being knocked down to $4.2M. Now the asking price is $3.595M, which seems reasonable given the hot Sag Harbor market. For that, you get 0.31 acre of property with a saltwater pool and pretty gardens. The house itself is 4000sf and is bursting with antique charm: fireplaces, wooden floors, vintage baths. And of course, you're within walking distance to everything Sag Harbor has to offer.
