There’s a unique, charming, and historic Sag Harbor home for sale. Maybe the best part, is that it comes with the pedigree of being the former home of Lieutenant Colonel John Hulbert. Lt. Hubert was a Revolutionary War hero who served in the 3rd New York Regiment. He built the house at 241 Main St. in the late 1700s. This is one of the coolest and most interesting real estate listings I’ve seen in a while. I mean, I love historic homes and this is why I follow the local real estate and housing market!
Hulbert, according to a plaque outside the home, led a militia that “designed and carried the first stars and stripes as their official flag during the Revolutionary War.” (However, Bloomberg reports that the Suffolk County Historical Society, now home to that flag, says it’s “believed to have been made” by Hulbert.). I mean, this really is one historic house, right??
This stunning 4,000 square foot centuries-old house is set on a 0.65-acre property and has been completely updated beautifully. There is a beautiful covered porch out front and glass doors leading to a bluestone patio outback. The large kitchen, lush garden, and 40-foot pool, hot tub, and outdoor fireplace make for an amazing space. Let alone the impressive 1,000 square foot guest house, too. This just may be worth a road trip to check this one out, hahaha.
