Though Sag Harbor has plenty of 19th century homes, finding one from the 17th century anywhere on the East End is pretty rare—so we were excited to see this 1,100-square-foot home in Sag Harbor village come on the market for $1.8 million under Douglas Elliman agents, Barbara Lobosco and Robery Evjen.
Built in 1693, the home might be one of the oldest homes in the Hamptons and, according to the listing, it actually moved five times before it finally settled down at 64 Union Street in Sag Harbor. The listing also says:
The living and dining room are the core of the original structure and retain the rough ancient beams and extraordinary wide plank floors on the ceilings, and some of the floors and walls.
Inside, there are three bedrooms and three bathrooms, while the exterior 0.17-acre property has a garage or studio in the rear backyard. The kitchen has been updated and now features new cabinets and countertops as well as a farmhouse sink, stainless steel appliances, and skylights.
Parts of the interiors could definitely benefit from a face lift—especially since the home looks quite dark—but we’re really hoping that this 325-year-old gem doesn’t get torn down.
Over the last 20 years, the home has changed hands several times. In 1999, it sold for $320,000 and just five years later is went for $675,000. Then, in 2008, it came off the market for $975,000 two years later in 2010 it sold for a lower $825,000. Since 2010, it’s been available to rent.
