This picture-perfect Sag Harbor home was originally built in 1791, and a modern restoration in 2013 brought it “back to its former glory,” according to the listing. After spending some time as a $1,950/night vacation rental, the home is now on the market for $2,950,000. Inside, the three-bedroom house mixes historic bones with whimsical details, a combo that is echoed outside, where a pergola-covered dining area and secret garden surround the pool.

The home is 1,500 square feet and has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The front parlor has the first of three fireplaces, and the dining room has a cool built-in office nook and a custom whaling mural commissioned by the owner.

The kitchen mixes contemporary Wolf appliances with rustic cabinetry and a brick hearth.

The master bedroom with en-suite bathroom is also on the first floor. Moody gray walls complement the fireplace, and a door opens to the backyard.

There are two more bedrooms and a full bath on the second floor. The third floor holds a playroom/office.

Outside, the heated Gunite plunge pool is surrounded by beautiful landscaping and a large patio. There are several areas for dining and lounging, one of which is under an ivy-covered pergola.

The home is just one block from all the shops and restaurants along Main Street.
