A former Methodist church that’s being transformed into a modern single-family home, returned to the market Friday with an $8.995 million price tag, $2 million less than it was most recently asking late last year.
Built in 1835, the 15,000-square-foot building in the tony Hamptons town of Sag Harbor is being transformed by local architectural firm Bates + Masi Architects. Sitting on a half acre, the property—which served as a church until 2008, according to local news reports—will have six bedrooms and seven-and-a-half bathrooms.
Fit for a saint 🙏

“Simultaneously historic and modern,” according to the listing with Compass agent Lori Schiaffino, plans for the house include a pool, indoor spa, and an open floor plan on the ground level with double-height, beamed ceilings. The property is still under construction, according to the listing.
Ms. Schiaffino did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The seller of the home is art collector and gallery owner Sloan Schaffer, according to a previous Mansion Global article. He used an LLC for his purchase, PropertyShark records show, paying $4 million for the church in 2013.
He first listed the property in 2015 for $23.5 million, according to listing records. Mr. Schaffer did not immediately respond to request for comment.
