There's a lot to love about this c. 1810 house, known as the Benjamin Glover House. Benjamin Glover built many houses in the area; this was his own residence. It's been thoroughly brought into the 21st century, however: there are five bedrooms, four baths, and seven fireplaces in 3340sf. For our own tastes, the house has been over-renovated and lost some of its antique charm, but most people will be wowed by it. There is a little over a quarter acre of land, which is fairly generous for being in town, and there'sa pretty garden out back with a petite gunite pool. A drawback is the house is on a corner with Glover Street and Main Street, but even so, we think the asking price is fair given all the amenities and given the white-hot Sag Harbor housing market.
