Sag Harbor, New York’s landmark Captain John Hulbert House has been reduced to $6.5 million after sitting on the market since 2018 for as much as $7.5 million. The 6,000 square foot residence last sold in 2017 for $2.5 million before a substantial remodel. The magnificent Italianate style home has been completely restored and renovated by Breskin Development and offers modern conveniences while staying true to the original design of this beloved landmarked treasure. Six Union 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 rumoured 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. The team at Breskin, tasked with restoring one of the largest and historically significant properties ever undertaken in the Village, has carefully infused modern Hamptons luxury while maintaining 18th century historic elements such as exposed hand-hewn beams and original mouldings and eight masonry fireplaces.
