Property description

Experience the blessings of tranquility at 'Treetops,' our hidden vacation home in the woods.

Our Sunset Shores community is private and quiet, with two deserted Peconic Bay beaches within steps. You are as likely to see deer as people as you walk down for a refreshing swim. But ocean beaches are just 20 minutes' drive away. Sag Harbor, the quaintest and most historic of the Hamptons towns, is 10 minutes drive. Southampton, with its boutiques and excellent children's park, is 15 minutes in the other direction.

The house is built in an 'upside-down' style: three bedrooms downstairs, open living/dining room upstairs, plus an oversize deck for grilling and drinking in the sunset over the pristine Peconic.


An added attraction is the Elizabeth Morton nature sanctuary half a mile away, where you can frolic with wild turkeys and feed birds by hand.

This house is new on the market as of Memorial Day, 2013

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: Ellen and Craig Mellow are sister and brother. They grew up in New York City and still live there, but were lucky enough to spend childhood summers on the Peconic Bay shore. Finally the Mellow family built its dream house by the bay 30 years ago, After our parents' passing, we are happy to share it with you.

Why the Owner Chose Sag Harbor:
This is a perfect spot to be away from it all. You can happily pass the days swinging in our hammock with a book, watching for deer who come to nibble our moss, strolling to the bay for a swim, grilling on the treetop deck. But the glitz and glamour of the Hamptons are easily accessible. Sag Harbor, with its yachting marina, working fishing boats and historic whaling museum, is the loveliest and most low-key of the Hamptons towns.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
When our parents built this house, they labored to disturb the forest as little as possible. They built the house 'upside-down' with a big open family area high among the trees. Craig years ago thought up the name Treetops, and it stuck. The house faces straight West toward the bay. So sunset at Treetops is an experience you will cherish always
