Property description

Sprawling 4-bedroom-plus Victorian home on a natural 3/4 acre property with large rooms, tall ceilings and striking detail. Floor-to-ceiling windows, incredible woodwork and plaster detail, carved fireplaces (decorative) - and a working, tuned, baby grand piano! The Sea Captain's Home is a big, classic retreat, surrounded by a 3/4 acre property in a rural setting, near farms, open fields and wild coastline. Beautifully landscaped yet retaining an old-time rustic charm, we have no neighbors behind us, so it's private and peaceful.

While do allow some pets, please let us know in advance if you plan to bring one. All pets need to be approved in advance.

Minutes away from several beautiful, secluded beaches - including a private one for residents only - 5 minutes to the bustling village of Greenport, and 3 minutes' walk to the The Hampton Jitney stop, this gracious 1860 Italianate Victorian is perfectly located for you to enjoy all that the North Fork offers.

The double parlor with pocket doors leads out through an entry hall to the big front porch with wicker furniture. The formal dining room with a bay window has a view of the rose garden. The front parlor has a baby grand piano that is tuned and in excellent working order, as well as a twin pullout loveseat, and the room closes off completely to give you a possible fifth bedroom. The rear parlor has a large comfortable sectional, 55" 4k smart TV with Netflix, cable, Blu Ray DVD player. The chef’s kitchen has a Wolf 6-burner stove and salamander, built-in SubZero refrigerator, glass-front cherry cabinets, Caesarstone counters and integral water filter. There is a second dining area in the kitchen that seats 6, with windows on 3 sides that provide panoramic views and lots of sunshine. The pantry off the kitchen provides plenty of storage space, as well as a washer/dryer. In the two baths, there are pedestal sinks and deep antique claw foot tubs, one with a shower. The outdoor double shower has a cedar floor and is nestled in a lush private garden. There are four bedrooms: The master bedroom has a King bed, the 2nd bedroom has two twins, 3rd bedroom a single bed. The fourth bedroom is a large, 24'x 12' dormer style studio with queen and full size beds, and a private staircase to the first floor.

The large backyard is filled with shade trees and stays quite cool in summer, perfect for reading in one of the six lounge chairs, or taking a snooze in the hammock. The large brick patio with 2 Weber charcoal grills has tables and chairs to accommodate 10 comfortably for outdoor dining. Relax in the huge yard that backs against acres of open county land for peace, privacy, and a great view.... especially at sunset.

Overall, the Sea Captain's Home is a peaceful retreat, perfectly located for you to enjoy the tranquility of nature, adventures on the water, as well as shopping, antique stores, the vineyards, and the exciting new local restaurants and nightlife. Go out and explore all day, then come home and relax and recharge with family and friends in a quiet, natural setting. We offer all of the comforts of home, but with a little something rustic left from days gone by. The furnishings are a perfect mixture of modern comfort and beautiful vintage pieces we have picked up locally during our time on the north fork. Our landscaping blends naturally into the wild toward the rear of the property, keeping a little of that old-time natural beauty for you to enjoy. The house is extremely comfortable, and we are priced very competitively for the size and style home we offer. We are sure you will enjoy it!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: New York natives who love Long Island and love the North Fork. We are both creative types, and so we appreciate the craftsmanship that went into the creation of this unique home. We love it with all our hearts.

Why the Owner Chose East Marion:
Truly built by a wealthy sea captain in 1860, it was owned by the same fishing family until the late 1970's. We are only the fourth owners of this old-time home, which has since been updated with modern amenities. The North Fork is like no other place in the world, and we have been to many. There are great beaches and water activities, fishing, boating, nature trails... but most of all great people, many of whom have lived here generations.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The gracious front porch gets lovely morning light, and it's a perfect place to sit and welcome the day. The backyard is filled with birds, and has teak lounge chairs to observe them from. Bike ride to the beach, and let the day take its course, then have an outdoor shower to refresh you. Strike up the grill, fill up jars of fireflies in the private large backyard, relax in the hammock, and watch the stars the come out.
