Own this Greek Revival with a patriotic history in Sag Harbor for $7.5M

By Barbara Baker - January 25, 2019

A Sag Harbor village Greek Revival with a very patriotic history is looking for a new owner. Built in 1760, the house once belonged to Captain John Hulbert who, according to the placard at the front door of the house, served in the Revolutionary War and designed the very first prototype for the American flag.

The 18th century house has been totally modernized after recent renovations, now spanning 6,000 square feet with five bedrooms (all ensuite) and an additional two half-bathrooms. Much to the pleasure of history buffs, some period details have been maintained; the exposed beams in the living room and kitchen are from the original construction.

A heated gunite pool and rooftop deck complete the outdoor living area.

Current owners bought the house for $2.5 million, but they’re hoping to turn quite the profit after revamping the space. Listed with Scott Strough from Compass Real Estate, the house is on the market for a much higher $7,495,000.

If the 259-year-old house sells for the current asking price, the owners will get almost three times the amount that they paid for the 0.2-acre property in 2017.
