Located in the heart of Historic Sag Harbor Village, 6 Union Street was originally constructed in 1760 for Revolutionary War veteran Captain John Hulbert and his family. Captain Hulbert and his militia were integral in the recapture of Fort Ticonderoga from the British in 1773. It is rumored that the original prototype of the American flag was designed by Hulbert to lead his forces, and was believed to have influenced the one sewn by Betsy Ross the following year. Now known as the Captain John Hulbert House, this Italianate style home has been completely restored and renovated by Breskin Development and offers modern conveniences while staying true to its original design.
The team at Breskin has carefully infused modern Hamptons luxury into this magnificent 6000 sq. ft. home, while maintaining 18th century historic elements such as exposed hand-hewn beams, original moldings, and eight masonry fireplaces.
