The home at 21 Burke Street in Sag Harbor is one filled with love — and looking for a new owner.

“The perfect buyer is a single person, couple or young family,” according to Brown Harris Stevens listing agent Andrea Ackerman. “The current owners had two children grow up and go to the great schools of Sag Harbor. The youngest was the valedictorian last year. Now empty nesters, they are moving to Boston for business pursuits.”

Built prior to 1850, the renovated three-bedroom, three-bathroom farmhouse listed for nearly $2.7 million features its original foundation, a chefs kitchen and a glassed-in dining room with all of the original character authentically preserved, Ackerman said.

“During an open house, a couple came in. The wife’s grandmother owned the house since 1902. It was very nostalgic for her. The current owners purchased it from the owner who had bought it from her,” she said. “There is a beautiful writer’s studio with a bathroom and outdoor shower. This could be a great pool house some day, as there is room for a pool. One block to the harbor, and this is someone’s dream village home.”
