Sag Harbor home believed to be Hamptons’ oldest asks $2.39M

What does it take to own a piece of the 17th century in New York’s coveted East End? More than $2 million.

A charming cottage in Sag Harbor — believed to be among the oldest homes in the Hamptons, if not the oldest — has listed for $2.39 million, according to the OutEast listings portal.

Beyond its lengthy history, this cottage also has an odd one: It’s moved around the Hamptons five times before settling on this lot.

Located at 64 Union St., the property dates to 1693, but it hasn’t always stood in that spot. It was built in Sagaponack and moved around five times before landing in its current lot, according to 6sqft. Previous listings have said the original structure survives in the home’s living and dining rooms — among the day 1 touches: exposed ceiling beams.

Listing images show the cottage’s simple white exterior. Inside, the new owner can also get wide-plank wooden floors and fireplaces in the living and dining areas. The country-style kitchen also has exposed ceiling beams, but the following centuries — and likely far more recent years — saw the addition of a skylight above the stove and farmhouse sink. There are also updated appliances and cabinets.
