An approximately 360-year-old home owned by retired tennis star Guillermo Vilas in Sag Harbor has hit the market for $995,000. The English-style, two-bedroom, two-bathroom, two-story cottage sits on .17 acres in Sag Harbor’s historic district, according to Beth Troy, an agent with Town & Country Real Estate, who has the listing. The property also includes gardens and a detached studio garage.

Troy would not disclose whether Vilas currently lives there or why he’s selling the home.

Troy said she’s confident that the Sag Harbor cottage’s history will draw customers. There are few, if any, comparable homes in terms of historical background in Sag Harbor, according to Troy, who consulted with a local historian after taking on the listing. The home’s lineage back to the 1600s is of particular note.

“I think the things that are [selling well] are… not a dime a dozen,” Troy said. “Even someone who is not a historian would appreciate this home.”
