This East Hamptons home comes with serious history. Not only was it built way back in 1639, but the facade comes from the wood of a ship and the structure is still held together by the original wood pegs. According to the broker, the East Hampton Historical Society has actually verified the house history as well as the ship’s numbered wood, the oldest part of the home. (The wood is numbered because, in the event of a shipwreck, it could be put back together.) They can also trace the property’s family history all the way back to its earliest owners. Now, on the market for $1.25 million, it’s ready for its next chapter.
The shingle-style house, only about 1,100 square feet, is decorated with red accents on the door, shutters, and chimney.
A living room fireplace is surrounded by wood beam ceilings and hardwood floors inside.
One perk of the property, if you’re into this sort of thing: the home comes with an operating farm stand.
It also sits on a beautiful 2.3 acres of land, with Three Mile Harbor just a short walk away. We’ve got to say, this is historic Hamptons living at its finest!
