Orient house description

Let the sun wake you in the morning, make coffee, go out on the deck and enjoy what many tell us is the best view in Orient.

I'm English and in England, we name our houses. We named this house 'The Perch' because it sits up high in the trees and dozens of birds come to our feeders every day. Hawks fly over the field. A couple of years ago, a pair of owls raised their offspring in a cedar tree yards from the edge of the deck. Other years it's orioles.

You can get to the Long Island Sound beach in a 3 minute walk and be 100 miles from Manhattan with no one else in sight.

And when you want to go into the village, it's a short car or bike ride away.

Keywords: house, private community, quiet, secluded, private beach, 3 minute walk to Sound, large deck, gardens.

Allergy alert: a cat and dog live here usually. The house is very clean, but not suitable for serious allergies.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1981

                      About the owner: Hello. I'm Venetia. I live in this extraordinary place with my partner Chris. I grew up in England in gorgeous English countryside and gardens; came to live and work in NYC in 1978; became a US Citizen in 1991; and have my own consulting business coaching people to speak with power, impact and inspiration. It's the most enjoyable work I've ever had.

                      Why the Owner Chose Orient:
                      I still don't believe the good fortune (and hard work) that allowed me to buy this house in 1981. I adore this little tip of land at the end of Long Island's North Fork. If you want peace, quiet and beauty, you can get it here even at the height of summer. And if you want to socialize and go out, it's not far away. But it you like to be surrounded by things going on, activities, shops, sounds, parties... this is probably not for you.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Every person who comes to visit this house -- from tradespeople, friends, visitors and our families --- gasp when they reach the back of the house and see the views! It's a very simple house as you approach the front, but from the deck at the back and every single window you see beautiful views and pictures.
