Peconic house description
Historic Waterfront Artist’s Residence
See the sunrise over Peconic Bay from this historic home – built in 1812 and moved to this bluff in 1911 as part of an artist’s colony. Ideally located with a southern exposure, enjoy over 200’ of private beach and the calm waters of the bay – great for sunning, swimming and boating. The 4 acre site is landscaped with outdoor garden dining table, bay overlook with benches, porches and plenty of grass for family play. Side laundry yard has a warm water outdoor shower, 2 changing rooms, charcoal grill and smoker.
The generous interior is perfect for family gatherings in all seasons. Summer days can start on the screened-in dining porch with breakfast overlooking the bay and end with dinner for 8 to 10 by moonlight. The eat-in kitchen is large enough and fully equipped to cook at great meal together, with pantry and plenty of counter space, recently renovated with new appliances and laundry. The 16’ x 33’ living / dining room centers around the brick fireplace and view out over the bay from the window seat. Antique furniture, oriental rugs and paintings make it a cozy room in cool weather, and holiday dinners can seat 8 to 10 at the table.
Called High House because of its unusual height, there are 5 bedrooms on two upper floors that sleep 10, furnished with antique and contemporary furnishings, all with water views: 2nd floor queen master bedroom, queen guest bedroom and new bathroom with tub & shower; 3rd floor twin pink bedroom, double yellow bedroom, small double green bedroom, and new tile shower bathroom with skylight.
The locale offers many choices for a great vacation. There are award-winning vineyards and plentiful farm stands nearby as well as fishing, boating, bicycling, and shops, restaurants and galleries in the towns of Greenport and Riverhead. Shelter Island and the Hamptons are easily accessible by ferry from Greenport.
An art studio building - not part of the rental - is located next door, and is occupied by the artist owner from time to time to paint. It is completely detached and separate from the house, and does not intrude on the house's privacy, having its own fenced backyard, beach access & parking space, and no ground-level windows facing the house.

About the owner: High House has been a special place for my family for 4 generations. It was begun by my great-grandparents, who moved the house to it's beautiful location in 1911 to be part of an artist's colony. As a child I enjoyed every summer here with my grandparents and now return often with my husband and children.
Why the Owner Chose Peconic:
A house imbued with family history in an extraordinary location.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the peaceful, relaxing world here, with beach walks and views of the bay that are always changing- from sunrise and sunset to full moon reflections. We also appreciate being close to preserved farmland and vineyards, so we can enjoy fresh produce, local products and of course delicious wine!
