The nearly 200-year-old home at 27 Howard Street in Sag Harbor village has just sold and closed for $1.25 million. The 1835 home came on the market back in January for $1.45 million and went into contract under the same price in April.
But January wasn’t the first time the last owner tried to offload this 19th century shingled home. It was listed for sale last summer for $1,995,000 and eventually came down in price by the end of the year to $1.75 million.
We love that period details that the home has maintained—but the interiors definitely still need some renovating and updating. In particular, we’re thinking that the eat-in kitchen cabinets will be replaced, and if the new owner wants to keep the original flooring, then they would probably want to do something to restore the hardwood.
We love the beamed ceilings and hope that those stay, as well as the multiple fireplaces found throughout.
In just 1,300 square feet, there are two bedrooms and two bathrooms. No photos of the bathrooms were available on the listing, so those are probably not in the best shape.
Located off Main Street, the 0.12-acre property is just a half-mile from village shops. The downside is that the property is tiny, so the new owners probably won’t be able to squeeze a pool in the back.
The listing was represented by Douglas Elliman agents, Kyle Rosko and Ryan Struble.
