Sag Harbor Village’s original French House has just undergone a comprehensive and historically sensitive restoration and expansion by Dragana Vlatkovic, a local designer and engineer known for her meticulous attention to every detail. Built circa 1830 and owned by Hannibal French, the noted whaling and shipping investor, this home is characteristic of affluent Sag Harbor captains’ homes of the time, featuring spacious entertaining rooms with high ceilings, large windows and elegant French doors facing the street. These and many other elements have been reused to the furthest extent possible in the painstaking restoration -- the original wide-plank pine floors were removed, re-milled and reset; ornamental scrolls of the staircase restored in place; the windows custom-made to the specifications of the original and energy efficient for modern comfort. Original foundations made of boulders reclaimed from whaling ships’ ballast are revealed in the lower level. The bright open public areas include two original fireplaces with restored mantels and flow past the first floor ensuite bedroom set off to one side for privacy, then arrive to the substantial new rear addition that features a chef’s kitchen with quartz waterfall island and backsplashes, La Cornue range and custom hood, Dacor refrigerator and Brizo hardware. This sunny space includes a sitting room or informal dining area with a fireplace, a convenient built-in desk, a butler’s nook and separate pantry. Through French doors, this room opens to an ample covered mahogany porch that overlooks the backyard. Upstairs, two guest bedrooms in the front of the house are ensuite and one has a skylight. Past the landing with its built-in antique French notary cabinet, the primary suite in the new addition features a sunny writer’s alcove, two custom walk-in closets, a gas fireplace and a beautiful bath with a soaking tub, trough sink, and large shower clad in Italian tile. Each of the bedrooms have cozy built-in window seats and ensuite baths with Restoration Hardware and Brizo fittings. The finished lower level offers a bedroom, full bath and closet along with a media room with fireplace, built-in seating, a bar and office or gym plus a laundry room. Exterior stairs lead to the backyard. Outdoors, the private grounds are surrounded by tall privet, colorful hydrangeas and mature trees and feature a new gunite pool bordered by Italian porcelain tile. Beyond the pool, the pergola with its wood-burning fireplace provides a shady spot from which to survey the scenery. This extraordinary home blends classic historic pedigree with the amenities for fine 21st century living, all just seconds to the shops, restaurants, beaches and marinas of the beloved village of Sag Harbor.
