Built 327 years ago, this charming cottage is thought to be the oldest home in Sag Harbor Village, however, it wasn’t built in Sag Harbor. According to past listings, the home was actually constructed in Sagaponack and then moved five times before settling in Sag Harbor, where it remains today at 64 Union Street and is asking $1,550,000. The original part of the house retains its exposed ceiling beams, wide-plank wood floors, and two working fireplaces. As a bonus, there’s a separate studio structure on the property that would make a great guest house.

According to the listing, “the original structure revolves around the current living room and dining room,” which are full of historic details. The entire house is 1,450 square feet.

The original floors carry over to the kitchen, but a renovation added an updated beamed ceiling with a skylight and modern appliances and cabinetry.

Also on the main floor are one bedroom and a full bathroom.

Upstairs, the larger bedroom has peaked ceilings, a decorative fireplace, and an en-suite bathroom.

The backyard is quite spacious. There area brick patio and the aforementioned studio.

The studio is climate-controlled and has radiant heat under its brick floors. There’s a full bathroom and enough room for a bed and a sitting area.

The home is just a few blocks away from all the shops and restaurants along Main Street.
