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.

When the coronavirus pandemic struck New York City last March, many New Yorkers decided to temporarily stick it out at short-term rentals in the Hamptons. As the crisis continued and it became clear COVID was not subsiding any time soon, those tentative renters became buyers, aided by low mortgage rates and the ability to work from home. According to a report from Sotheby’s International Realty, sales activity in the Hamptons in the third quarter of last year saw a significant increase year over year at all price points as many sought more space and access to the outdoors. “It took a pandemic for folks to discover that the Hamptons is so much more than a swanky summer-only home destination,” Holly Hodder, an agent managing East End listings for Sotheby’s International Realty, said. “Thousands of people who have settled here for hundred-plus years as full-time residents know that anyone can find an affordable level.”
