The house in that painting is an old 19th century Maine farmhouse and is still there. It is not the house in the Sargent painting. 

From:  Barridoff Galleries 

The artist purchased half of the island from the owners of the house depicted where John Singer Sargent, Ross Turner, John L. Breck, and Childe Hassam, among others, were apparently frequent visitors. A watercolor by Sargent titled “On the Verandah (Ironbound Island, Maine)” was sold at Christie’s, New York, Important American Paintings, Drawings and Sculpture, Tuesday, November 30, 1999, lot 62. (One cannot begin to appreciate the beauty of this lot from the illustration. Among other things, Blaney’s very subtle use of light to create texture and volume is lost.)
