Known locally as the historic Hunt-Johnson Home, this classical house was built in 1841 by Colonel Henry Wentworth Hunt, who founded the local newspaper the Sag Harbor Corrector, today known as the Sag Harbor Express. It remained in the Hunt-Johnson family for three generations until it was sold in 1951 to Joe Petrocik and Myron Clemente. The couple was good friends with Truman Capote, and, in fact, Capote’s 1968 red Mustang convertible is still in the garage with the original “Capote” license plate. The charming three-bedroom home retains much of its original architecture and is on the market for $3,195,000.
