Sound Beach house description

Our home is a rambling ranch with a beautiful and spacious pool and patio set in a very quiet residential neighborhood. It's perfect for hours spent swimming, relaxing and barbecuing on the gas grill at poolside. We are just a five minute walk from a private beach club on Long Island Sound which is available to our guests. The house is ideal for a family with 2-3 children. It features a large master bedroom with a queen-size bed and its own bath, and two smaller bedrooms and a full-size hall bathroom. The dining and entertainment area is expansive with a modern eat-in kitchen, family room, large dining and living rooms and flat-screen TVs with cable in the family room and living room. The house also has broadband wi-fi service. There is a one-car garage and a large driveway. Nearby are many great golf courses, state parks, North Fork vineyards, and the Tanger Outlet Mall, which is in Riverhead, only 15 minutes away.

                  Our quiet and relaxing home has a beautiful pool and patio, is one-and-a-half hours from New York City, and is located 15 minutes from the North Fork -- Long Island's famous Wine Country. We are less than a quarter mile from Long Island Sound and our guests have access to the Tides Beach Club, which is for residents of our development. We are close to many top notch golf courses, and 15 minutes away from the Tanger Outlet Malls in Riverhead. It takes only 45 minutes to reach the Town of Westhampton, and we are an hour and 15 minutes from Southampton and Sag Harbor.

                  About the owner: Hi. We are Horace Barker and Christine Govan, and we welcome you to our beautiful getaway on Long Island.

                  Why the Owner Chose Sound Beach:
                  When we chose this home we looked for a semi-rural area that was beautiful, yet quiet and unpretentious. We wanted to be less than a two hour drive from NYC, and close to recreational activities such as golf, beach-going and fishing. We spend many happy times here just relaxing and enjoying the company of family and friends.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The best thing that our house offers is the chance to relax, rest and enjoy yourself quietly in proximity to a wide range of fun activities in the are of eastern Long Island,
