Two separate 19th century buildings in Sag Harbor, both with a combination of commercial space and apartments, were recently restored and listed for sale. The building at 112 Hampton St. was constructed in 1845 and is on the market for $4.995 million, while 197 Madison St., built in 1850, is asking $3.595 million.
Seller Paul Babcock restored both structures. He took apart the entire 3,000-square-foot Madison Street building — which is being used as a decorator’s atelier, with three occupied apartments — and rebuilt it, keeping many of the historic details in place.
“If something had to be replaced, we added something that was the same size,” Babcock says.
Both properties have had many previous lives, Babcock says. Years ago, the property on Madison Street housed a ship’s chandlery, while the one on Hampton Street, where there are now also two apartments in addition to the retail space, had a gas station.
Both properties are listed with Laura White of Saunders & Associates.
