Sag Harbor is full of historic homes, many built in the 1800s. And while Sag Harbor certainly gets its fair share of modern new constructions, we often see old homes restored and revived rather than torn down.
The one at 5 Green Street—located right on the fringe of the village, close to Canio’s Books on Main Street and the Sag Harbor Fire Department—a home built in the year 1800 just went up for sale with Corcoran Real Estate Group’s agent Mala Sander.
Since March of this year, the home has been available to rent through Sotheby’s International Realty’s agent Zacheriah Dayton. In it’s time up for rent, it was asking between $35,000 per month and $50,000 per month.
The current owner purchased the 217-year-old home in 2008 for $2,213,000 just a month after it came on the market for $2,595,000. Before that, it sold in 2007 for $935,000.
While the home has been restored and renovated to bring it up to date and make it livable, we love that so many period details have been maintained—in particular, the hardwood floors and wood paneling that can be found in certain parts of the home, such as the stairwell. Also, the sailboat wallpaper in the bunk room is just too cute.
Standing 2,300 square feet in size, there are three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a foyer, library, and sunroom. Interior features include wood beamed ceilings, an open kitchen with a farmhouse sink, and French doors in the sunroom that lead out to the exterior brick patio. Outside, there’s lounge space, a retractable awning, gardens, and a heated pool on 0.3 acres of land.
