An Iconic Circa-1790 Sag Harbor Home Wants $7M

Rich with history and the amazing architecture that often accompanies such a storied past, Sag Harbor was settled by English colonists sometime between 1707 and 1730. As one of the two remaining Federal-style homes on the village’s Main Street, this 1790-constructed Peleg Latham House is noteworthy indeed. Asking $6.995 million, the home offers a rare opportunity to live in a preserved and iconic landmark.

The original owner of Peleg Latham House was, well, Peleg Latham, of course. Born in Sag Harbor on June 20, 1769, he was one of eleven children. Mr. Latham captained the schooner Maria, which carried goods from New York to Charleston. He died in 1833, but his home remains, restored in 2008 and full of Sag Harbor charm.

Very much a part of downtown and at the center of world-class restaurants and shops, Peleg Latham House comes with 1,150-square-feet of prime retail space opening directly onto Main Street. The residential portion of the property, 3,162-square-feet spread across three levels, can be accessed on Main Street or through the lush gardens on the quieter Church Street.

Exposed wood beams, seven custom brick fireplaces, and hardwood flooring instill the elegant simplicity of Latham’s original period detail. Outside, a patio and pool are ideal for enjoying beautiful Hamptons weather.
