Sag Harbor is notable for its historic homes that people choose to renovate rather than destroy—many of which once belonged to whaling ship captains. The home at 133 Jermain Avenue is no exception, having previously served as the residence to Captain Atkins Eldredge, for whom it was built in 1843.
The renovated home has been on the market in the past; Curbed once featured it on a PriceSpotter. At the time, it was listed for $2.9 million—though, most readers thought that it was listed for as high at $3.4 million. Now, a little more than a year later, it’s available for $1,898,000 under Sotheby’s International Realty agent John Christopher.
At 2,500 square feet in size, there are three bedrooms and three full bathrooms inside the shingled abode. Many renovated Sag Harbor homes tend to hold on to the qualities of the home that remind us that it’s historic—and while this particular structure maintained the incredible wide plank pumpkin pine hardwood flooring and wood-beamed cathedral ceilings in the living room, some of the home has been modernized to bring it into the 21st century.
In particular, the kitchen has been renovated and now features stainless steel appliances and granite countertops.
The fireplace in the living room and arched entryways remind us that the home has a history, plus there are lots of windows for natural light to pour into the interior. We’re also loving the blue tiles in one of the bathroom showers.
Outside, there is outdoor lighting, speakers, and a three-car garage. Unfortunately, there aren’t too many photos of the exterior in the newer listing. From the photos in the older listing, it doesn’t look like there’s too much room for a large pool, but a small one might be able to squeeze in.
