Property description

This ranch house is beautifully located on a freshwater lake in the heart of Long Island's wine country, just minutes from the beach. Enjoy abundant bird life in a garden setting. The lake is perfect for swimming, fishing, kayaking or canoeing. Swimming in Long Island Sound is just six blocks away at Kenney's Beach. Barbecue and dine in the spacious backyard with a sunset view of the lake. Stargaze with no interfering city street lights. House has two bedrooms and a sofa bed accommodating up to six people, a large ranch-style kitchen with dishwasher, microwave and coffee maker, wifi internet access, and a TV, DVD and VCR. Pets allowed with prior approval and signed pet agreement.

This beautifully landscaped property is one half acre in size with wooded and open areas and a private bulkheaded lakefront. It is ideal for families with young children who like to explore. The house comes completely furnished, with the exception of towels and linens.

Just down the road at the end of the lake is Peconic Dunes Camp, a summer camp operated by Suffolk County. The village of Southold is just a five minute drive away, as well as 20 of the North Fork's finest wineries. Other local visitor attractions include the historic port villiage of Greenport, Horton's Point Lighthouse, and Goldsmith's Inlet County Park.

Within a five minutes' drive are some of Long Island's most celebrated wineries. Other nearby attractions include the quaint seaport village of Greenport, the Horton Point Lighthouse and Nautical Museum, and Goldsmiths Inlet County Park.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1957

About the owner: I have enjoyed this property as a summer vacation home all of my life, and I now enjoy sharing with others who have yet to experience the rural pleasures of the North Fork.

Why the Owner Chose Southold:
This property is in an idyllic garden setting on the edge of Great Pond. In the morning you wake to the sounds of birds all around you and see the sparkling lake out of your kitchen window. In the evenings there are fabulous sunsets to the West over the lake and at night there is perfect stargazing with no disturbances of neighboring street lights.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
What makes this property unique is its large size (1/2 acre+) and the large variety of natural environments it offers. Surrounding the house are trees, shrubs, and perennials of all kinds and further away from the house there are open and wooded areas with an abundance of other native and unusual introduced trees. At the water's edge, there are no neighbors to either side, giving you your own private views of Great Pond and yet another unique natural environment.
