Property description

Leave your car, your shoes and the noise of the city behind. Ocean Beach on Fire Island is a charming community without cars, where the residents walk barefoot to the beach, ride bicycles (weekdays) and use wagons to carry their belongings. We have enjoyed our summers here for 40+ years, and we think your family will love it too!

Ocean Beach offers a playground, library, movie theatre, children's day camp, tennis and basketball courts and softball field. Catholic and Protestant churches and a Synagogue are nearby.

Lovely, 100 year old 3BR beach house with modern amenities.
• 2 minute walk to the beach with lifeguards on duty in season.

• Spacious living room with exposed beam ceilings and southern venting skylights
• Newly renovated bedrooms and indoor bathroom with shower

Spend the day at the beach or take a short walk into the village on the Great South Bay. There you will find bayside swimming with lifeguard, bay-front restaurants, grocery stores, a movie theatre and many shops. Short video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8nFT62UM7w

The Village of Ocean Beach has a playground, children's day camp, tennis and basketball courts, softball field, library, water taxis and ferries to other Fire Island communities. Catholic and Protestant churches and a Synagogue are nearby. East of Ocean Beach is the 'Sunken Forest,' part of Fire Island National Seashore, a nice day hike. West of Ocean Beach is the Fire Island Lighthouse, a National Park Service museum and monument completed in 1858.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1970

About the owner: In our family for 45 yrs.

Why the Owner Chose Ocean Beach:
This cottage is one of the few remaining original cottages in Ocean Beach (circa 1906). It has been in our family since 1970 and we have tried to retain the traditional qualities of a seasonal beach house. This is classic and humble home with the amenities we believe will be both comforting and welcoming.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Original Fire Island beach cottage. Very hard to find an old home with a large deck and two screened-in porches. Renovated inside bathroom and bedrooms (2014). New kitchen (2009). New foundation (2010) and roof (2008-9) saved our home during Hurricane Sandy in 2011.
