A Circa-1791 Sag Harbor Home Brimming with Personality Asks $3M

With Labor Day just days away, summer will soon come to a close. But just in time for the long weekend, a Hamptons listing is on the market in need of new residents. A cozy home with personality in spades, the circa-1791 property sits in serene Sag Harbor close to the quiet bustle of Main Street. Asking $2.95 million, 47 Madison Street is equal parts charming and chic.

Renovated and restored entirely in 2013, the home cannot be easily defined. Much of the vintage appeal has remained over the centuries, with wide plank hardwood flooring and fireplace imbuing an antique sense of elegance. Many of the current owners’ contemporary design choices reflect the seaside location, namely the custom whaling mural of the formal dining room. But each room has its own personality, embracing the old world to varying, yet always complementary, degrees.

There’s the kitchen, with the cabinets painted a dark teal and functionally decorated with copper cookware. Then, the office with its walls of books opens to the dining room via an arched entrance. And, at last, the outdoor grill and living space, shielded from the sun by a trellis crawling with foliage and overlooking the slender pool. Even with only 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms smartly folded into a modest 1,500 square feet, the home never ceases to surprise you.

David Cox of Compass has the listing.
