Laurel house description

This spectacular contemporary overlooks a lovely sandy beach on the Great Peconic Bay. The house is situated on three tranquil wooded acres with over 200' of beachfront. The walls facing the beach are all glass, the floor plan is open, and everywhere the views are amazing.

The house is built on five half levels, all designed to make the most of the view.  At the very top is the Master Bedroom with a king bed and a private deck overlooking the bay. Down a short flight of stairs is the Master Bathroom with Jacuzzi tub/shower combination.

Around the corner is an generous seating area with a new 42' flat screen TV, plus a breathtaking view of the bay.

Walk down some wide carpeted (suitable for sitting on) steps to the main level with an open floor plan. The spacious living room area with gas fireplace is open to the kitchen and dining area, and they all open onto a huge deck overlooking the beach.  New sectional furniture makes the most of the view, winter and summer.

One more short flight of steps down brings you to ground level where there is a guest room with its own private bath, plus a full bath off the hall. 

Three more small bedrooms and a utility room (with washer and dryer) share the lowest level. The first bedroom has a queen bed, the blue room has two twin beds and the yellow room has one full-size futon. All the rooms have been freshly painted and new carpeting was installed last summer.

Cooks love our kitchen! Small and efficient, it contains a refrigerator, 5 burner gas oven, a microwave and disposal and dishwasher.  Stand at the sink and you look across the dining room table through the sliding glass doors to the deck and the beach and the bay.

The large deck is accessible thru any of the sliding glass doors facing the bay. Spacious with plenty of seating, the deck has a roll-out awning for shade. There is a large gas grill to the side of the deck that can be used year round. A lower level has a table that comfortably seats six and can handle 8-10 people.

The heat is forced hot air so becomes comfortable in minutes, and there is also central air conditioning although with the sea breezes you rarely need it.  The cozy gas fireplace in the living room keeps the living area comfortable and is all the heat you need during the fall and spring.

There is NO SMOKING permitted in the main house.  Without written permission, pets are not permitted in the main house.

NOTES: Rentals begin at 4pm and end at noon. A 50% non-refundable deposit is required to secure a rental with the balance due 60 days ahead of the arrival date.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1980

                      Why the Owner Chose Laurel:
                      This property has been in my family for over ninety years. I spent summers here as a kid, and have been fortunate enough to allow my five children to enjoy summers at the beach here as well. Now they're 19 to 29 and it's harder to assemble everyone, and harder for me to take time off from running my luxury bed and breakfast in Hanover, NH. So, I spend the month of Juy there and rent it for the remainder of the year. This is the first time we've made it available for the entire month of August.
