A Whaling Captain’s Hamptons Home Just Hit the Market for $6.325M
Located in Sag Harbor on Captain’s Row, 245 Main Street has barely been touched since belonging to ship captain Shamgar H. Slate in the 1840's. According to 2013 listing photos, the home was sold for $1.7 million in almost entirely original condition. In fact, a few gas lighting fixtures were still intact.
However, gas lights don't get the job done in 2017, and so the early Federal residence underwent a major yet mindful renovation at the hands architect Jason Thomas and builder Declan Murray. The dream team quickly got to work installing custom millwork, leaded glass windows and hand-pegged wood beams.
The home is now newly-listed at $6.325 million with David Cox of The Corcoran Group.
Expanded from 2,555 square-feet to 4,500 square-feet, the house now boasts five bedrooms instead of the original three. Signature East End design details dot every room, including the richly layered living room where lantern sconces to pay homage to the home's historical roots.
Original molding surrounds the inviting front door and continues from room to room throughout the house.
The front sitting room immediately reminds guests that they are in the Hamptons with neutral and blue color palettes.
