Captain John Hulbert—a Revolutionary War veteran who designed the first American flag prototype—lived in this Sag Harbor village house at 6 Union Street, which is on the market for $7,495,000.

Curbed actually featured the house when it first went up for sale with this asking price back in June, but we thought we’d revisit the property since it looks like interior renovations have been mostly completed.

There have been no changes in price over the last seven months.

Built in 1760, the 18th century Greek Revival spans 6,000 square feet in size with five ensuite bedrooms and two half-baths on a quarter acre of land. Features include custom millwork, 10-foot ceilings, the original exposed beams, eight working fireplaces, and a bar and lounge. Outside, there’s a rooftop deck with a fireplace, and a heated gunite pool.

According to PropertyShark records, the house was purchased in June of 2017 for $2,475,000. Compass agent Scott Strough represents the property.

Considering the renovations, the history, and the location, what do our readers think of the asking price of this 18th century house? When we first featured the house, commenters thought that the jump in price was too steep, but now that there are more photos available, what do you think? Tell us in the comments.
