Property description

200 year-old home (circa 1780) in the village of Greenport on the North Fork of Long Island, with lovely waterviews of Sterling Harbor and marinas, within a short, 5-minute walk to town. The house has been renovated with architectural character intact and an open flow to the spacious rooms. Three bedrooms (master with working fireplace on 1st floor, two bedrooms on the 2nd floor -- one is a double with a queen-size bed, the other is a single), two full baths, large and gracious dining room, foyer/library/study with a working fireplace and a small daybed (suitable for an occasional child), and a beautiful and airy sunroom, opening to a front deck with pergola and flowering vines, perfect for entertaining and outdoor grilling. Old beamed ceilings, original wide floorboards, folk art, and an eclectic mix of antiques, modern and Chinese lacquered furniture, all lend charm and character to the interior. The recently renovated country kitchen has all new state-of-the-art appliances and opens out to a side patio with arbor and gardens for casual dining, with the driveway nearby.

With the lovely front, side and back yards (.27 acre), this property combines privacy and a country feel within a short walk to all village amenities -- gourmet shops, supermarket, Latham's farm stand for fresh/local/seasonal produce, Alice's fish market with the day's catch, cafes, bakery, wine and raw bars, delis, a variety of restaurants (family, BBQ, comfort food, up-scale, seafood, hamburgers, etc.), cheese emporium, movie theater, carousel, antique/art galleries, bait shop, marinas, liquor and wine stores, pharmacy, hardware/marine supply stores, bookstore, banks/ATMs. All you need in this historic maritime port is within a short walk or bicycle ride!

The village is located in the heart of the North Fork farm and wine country, with the white sand and pebble beaches of Long Island Sound and Peconic Bay. Many beaches are in walking or biking distance: Sandy Beach is in view from the house, '67 Steps' on the Sound is about a mile away, and other public beaches are nearby. For boaters, slips can be rented at the end of the street and a nearby public dock can be used for launching small boats or kayaks and/or fishing in Sterling Basin. Only a 2-hour drive from New York City, Greenport is served by train (LIRR), bus (Hampton Jitney), the North Ferry (for travel to Shelter Island, the Hamptons, and Montauk); and all transportation is in walking distance from the house. The Cross Sound Ferry (for travel to New London, New England, and beyond) is 8 miles away at Orient Point. Enjoy golf (Island's End in Greenport and a public course on Shelter Island), boating, sailing, fishing, swimming, tennis (public courts in all the towns), cycling, concerts, theater, wine-tasting at the local vineyards, nature preserves, birding, summer festivals, country fairs, auctions, house and garden tours, art openings, and the night life. Enjoy life in the maritime village, nestled in peaceful Sterling Harbor!!
