Southold house description
This stunning house and cabin was built in the 1940's and renovated in the last 2 years by the artist/designer owner. The 1.5 acre waterfront property lies at the end of a long dirt road and is surrounded by abundant trees and greenery. No neighbors are visible. The house is full of antiques, old books and contemporary photography. There is also a secluded, small cabin on the property and windswept stairs leading down to a private beach.
Upstairs in the cottage is a master suite with queen size bed, spacious dressing room and full bath with shower. Across the hall is another large bedroom with bunk beds, terrace and full bath with tub. Downstairs is a single bedroom that has the use of a 1/2 bath.
The main house has central AC and heat. There is a flat screen TV hidden behind cabinetry in the period library with 2 large window seats for curling up with a book. The garage has been converted into a 800 sq ft studio. An antique tiger maple dining table seating 12 can be set up here for dinner parties upon request.
There is a large deck with teak dining furniture overlooking the Sound that has beautiful sunsets. There is both an ample front and back yard with a swing set and tether ball. There is also a ping pong table.
The 2 room cabin is perched on the edge of a bluff overlooking the Sound. It is an extremely romantic place. There is a full bath with indoor and outdoor showers, quaint kitchenette, wood stove and eat in screened porch.
There are stairs leading down to the private beach on the Sound. It is one house away from a state park and landmark lighthouse.
The house is an easily mile by bike from the cute town of Southold, whose highlights are a few antique shops and a great ice-cream parlor. Southold is situated between Greenport and Peconic on the North Fork. It is the same distance from Manhattan as Bridgehampton on the South Fork (minus the traffic). It is a beautiful 45 minute drive to Sag Harbor and the Hamptons via Shelter Island and two little ferries.

A hidden gem
A hidden gem
we are a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 children) and this home was perfect for our recent vacation. The kids (ages 8 and almost 4) were very happy exploring the gorgeous rocky beach and hanging out in the big backyard every day. Every evening we saw the most beautiful sunsets from the top of the steps leading to the beach. It was a relaxing and peaceful vacation for us all. The location is amazing. Feels totally secluded and private yet it's very close (5-7 min drive) to grocery store, fish market, etc. Very easy to get to charming restaurants in Southold and Greenport. I would definitely recommend to family and friends. The pictures are accurate (except I think the setting is even more beautiful in person). The house and romantic separate cottage are very cool, beautifully renovated. Both house and cottage have a lot of great character. We settled in almost immediately upon arrival and we were very sad to leave!

Perfect Vacation Spot on the North Fork!
Perfect Vacation Spot on the North Fork!
My husband and I rented this house for 10 days in September 2012. First of all, the owner is very nice and very fair and easy to deal with. We did have to provide references for our stay, but that was no big deal. Our 3 children and a couple of their friends stayed with us for varying chunks of the time, and the house and cabin were ideal for our needs. Our son and his girlfriend stayed in the cabin for a couple days, and then friends of ours (another couple) occupied the cabin for other days. The cabin is more rustic than the main house (but very charming) and sits on the edge of the cliff, right over the water. The setting is spectacular. While there are other houses nearby, you cannot see them. The property has its own stairway down to the beach, which -- for all intents and purposes -- is pretty much a private beach. One warning: the beach adjacent to the house is comprised of small rounded stones. I recommend water shoes for both beach walking and swimming. The beach and the house face west, and the nightly sunsets were amazing. You can see the water through the trees from the house and deck. We totally lucked out with wonderful weather . . . sun and moderate temperatures in the 70s and 80s every day. The house feels very remote, yet it is very close to town, train, groceries, pizza, restaurants, etc. Also situated in the middle of the North Fork, which makes exploration easy. The house is very charming and beautifully decorated in a true vintage beach cottage style. When not on the beach we spent most of our time sitting at the cozy kitchen alcove or at the large table on the deck. We definitely will consider a return visit!

Why the Owner Chose Southold:
I sold my home in Bridgehampton and moved to Southold two years ago. While beautiful, I was tired of the crowds and unrelaxed pace of the Hamptons. I wanted to be engulfed in nature and to hike and have adventures by walking out the back door of our house. We love the peaceful, down to earth feel of the area which is full of farms and wineries. It reminds me of how the South Fork was 30 years ago.
