Originally built in 1889, the Sag Harbor home at 49 John Street is available for sale for just the second time in its 130-year history. The asking price is $2.25 million.
The house currently belongs to Greg Therriault, a former potter. He has lived at the residence since the 1960s when he and his partner, playwright Joe Pintauro, purchased the home from its first owner. Pintauro passed away in May of 2018.
Interestingly, Pintauro once served as a priest before switching careers to become a playwright. His play Men’s Lives was the first production to be shown at Sag Harbor’s Bay Street Theater in 1992.
Sited on 0.21 acres of land, the 19th century home is host to three bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms. Features include period details, a fireplace in the living room, a glass-enclosed sun porch accessed by French doors, and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen. Outside, the hedged property offers a pergola, an outdoor shower, room for a pool, and a two-story carriage house that could operate as a writer’s or artist’s studio.
Homeowners will be less than a mile from village shops and restaurants, and about a mile and a half from Havens Beach.
