Saunders Exclusive: $4,495,000
This exceptional residence in the heart of Sag Harbor Village seamlessly blends wonderful historic details, that would be nearly impossible to replicate, with 21st century sensibility and features. Move right into this beautifully appointed home or reimagine it to your personal aesthetic. In 3,000+/- sq. ft. of living space there are 5 bedrooms, 5 and 1 half baths plus a full basement. The home was built in 1832 for Rev. Samuel King, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church, the Old Whalers Church, and is replete with original features.
A welcoming foyer flows to a large living room, dining room and kitchen with high, vaulted ceilings with rough-hewn beams and a brick fireplace. Interior spaces are an inspired synthesis of modern amenities and historic elements. Still in place are 5 operational fireplaces, the original doorbell and leaded glass sidelights, wide plank wood floors, a pineapple staircase finial, and intricately handcrafted moldings, “I’ve never seen a home quite like this one, still retaining so much original character, yet living quite squarely in the 21st century. This house epitomizes history paired with modern functionality – and it’s in such a high demand location,” says listing broker Julie Masson.
The home’s interiors are full of light, with generously sized rooms, abundant windows, white walls, and exceptionally high ceilings. Updated over the years, there are contemporary light fixtures, granite kitchen countertops, high end stainless steel appliances, and bonuses like a full home Tensui water filtration system. Additionally, high speed internet and “extra” rooms support working or schooling from home. The unique third floor aerie features front and rear eyebrow windows which open for fresh air, and stained glass and original hardware details.
“The outdoor space here is really exceptional,” Julie explains. “There are multiple areas that flow from one to the next…There’s a large deck and patios all oriented to a gorgeous two tiered custom gunite pool. The waterfall feature is really tranquil, and the surrounding hydrangeas, specimen trees and other perennials create an oasis where one can truly relax or entertain with panache.
It’s unusual to have a pool, hot tub, fire pit, spa, screened-in porch AND an outdoor shower-tub combo all on one property. It’s a true slice of heaven that’s just moments from all that one wants to enjoy in a Village home. The shops, marinas, theaters, restaurants, and even the Jitney stop are all so close by one truly doesn’t need a car”
