Whaleship captain Atkins Eldredge had this Sag Harbor home built for him back in 1843, and it’s recently been renovated and brought up to date with modern conveniences. Just earlier this year, we featured the home when it went on the sales market—and between then and now, the home has been totally transformed.

What then was serving as a sitting room is now the master suite, maintaining the wood beamed ceilings and fireplace. The eat-in kitchen has also been updated with custom cabinetry and a new paint job on the floor-to-ceiling windows.

The house could be your Labor Day Weekend retreat in the Hamptons, asking $7,500 for a short-term rental under Compass Real Estate agent, Heather Saskas.

Features include the original pumpkin pine hardwood flooring, a formal dining room, bluestone patios, a garden, and outdoor lighting and speakers—which are perfect for small outdoor gatherings.

There’s not a pool, but the Jermain Avenue home is less than a mile from Haven’s Beach.
