                  Location

                  Such a special place! This area is a nautical paradise, surrounded by farms. It's still hard to believe how close it is to NYC and how far away it can feel. But usually when people do find their way here, it doesn't take long to fall in love. The smell of salt in the air, the light in the sky, I've been coming here my whole life and I never take it for granted. I usually leave my renters with a list of our favorite little discoveries like the best vineyards for families and where to get oysters on the beach brought right in off the boat! The best thing to do is get here and see for yourself how special this area is, you won't be disappointed! When you do get here you will be treated to countless local farms all more than able to help you complete your farm to table dinner. Need wine for dinner? You'll have more than 40 vineyards to choose from but instead of traveling tens of miles between them, THEY are ALL within 20 miles of one another! Want fresh fish for dinner, use the local fish markets that are teeming with the day's catch, or better yet, take the poles to the surf and reel them in yourself. Or go clamming in the bay for little necks or steamers for your appetizers. The day's choices are endless. From bike riding on the country back roads to sleeping on the hammock, you will enjoy all that the North Fork has to offer day in and day out, and just like most people, you will want to come back year after year.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About the owner: My dad bought this property in 1968 after a summer rental nearby. Being a school teacher in Southern Westchester with 5 children, he needed a place to bring his brood in the summer. Luckily a friend told him about the beaches and farms (potato farms back then) on the North Fork. I was three years old in 1968 and have been spending my summers here ever since. A few years after he passed my husband and I bought the house so we could keep it in the family and I'm so glad we did! The best times of course are when my siblings, and now our children, can be reunited here in the summer, but I am almost as happy when I know another family is having just as wonderful a time experiencing this magical area and all that it has to offer.

                  Why the Owner Chose Mattituck:
                  Mattituck is right next door to Cutchogue, the sunniest sector in New York State. I cannot tell you how many times over the years, we have had sunny days at the beach while it was overcast elsewhere on the Fork. It is truly perfectly positioned, nearby to all, yet a world away. The beach is particularly splendid for children! The Bay is not rocky or cold like on the Sound side. It is shallow and mild, and the sand is soft.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  The main benefit of the house is the private association beach. It is just so close and so glorious. We have spent so much time through the years fishing, clamming, swimming, and simply relaxing on its sand. When we want a playground, a huge one is right around the corner at Veteran's Beach. But our beach is so private and we get to enjoy it as such. Usually we bring the firepit down to the beach after dinner for s'mores and vino under the stars. On hot nights we'll even swim again! It is truly an idyllic summer ritual! Another benefit is the tremendous screened porch. It is ideal for napping and meals. And the beautiful outdoor shower, no matter what time of day or night, you will always prefer it to an indoor shower! We spend most of the time on the porch or on the deck when we are home, but mostly we are at the beach. Also, one cannot ovestate the benefit of having an ice cream parlor at the top of one's block!
