 Dating to circa 1765, with walls originally constructed from the ballasts of ships, and sympathetically modernized in 2012, this graceful 4-bedroom former manse of the Old Whaler's Church offers impeccable style and irreplaceable character at a coveted address in the heart of Sag Harbor Village. Period architectural details in the Egyptian Revival style with a whaling motif, matching that of the church, remain beautifully preserved from an addition in the mid 1800s by Minard Lafever, designer of the iconic Old Whaler's Church. The home opens on a grand 50' hallway of brick, waxed, Venetian plaster, dentil molding, and the original wide plank, pumpkin pine floors. The living room and dining room, each adorned with fireplaces and Lafever's authentic moldings, flank the entry and profit from the natural light of nearly full height windows which open to the charming front porch. The entry hallway leads to the spacious and supremely stylish eat-in kitchen with bay window breakfast nook, island seating, and custom cabinetry by Dereyk Patterson, crowned by a handmade La Cornue Chateau range in Lafayette Blue. The open kitchen flows into a sitting room with fireplace. A second sitting room with French doors opens onto the elevated, rear dining deck, overlooking the heated, gunite, 30' lap pool and outdoor shower, all screened by mature hedges and landscaping. An en suite guest bedroom and powder bath complete the main level. Upstairs, the bright master suite offers walk-in closets and a luxurious Moroccan tile bath with dual vanity, free standing tub, and shower. A bright office off the landing and two en suite bedrooms complement the master. The third floor has a cedar room and storage space. The partially finished lower level has a sitting room with the original kitchen's oven, full bath, laundry room, and wine room. Central vacuum system and radiant heating in select rooms. Convenient to all the charms of Sag Harbor Village, this is a rare opportunity to own a fully renovated, trophy home of exceptional character and design.
