Southold house description

This four bedroom, two bath, mint condition beach house is the perfect location for a summer retreat for your family. Located on a quiet country lane with water views out of every window! Located on top of a small, wooded, sand dune which allows for beautiful 360 degree views out of every window. In front you have an unobstructed view of LI Sound, where the sun will set into the water each evening, providing a memorable mural of natures artwork. This home has been built specifically to capture these sunsets!
The rear of the house is almost as spectacular, located directly on Great Pond, a 100 acre preserved, fresh water lake, which offers the best fresh water fishing on Long Island.
Locally well know, Kenney's Beach on LI Sound is located 150 yards away, and is manned all summer with a full time life guard. This beach is a hidden gem that is never crowded. And as if that were not enough, just a half mile to the east is another hidden gem-McCabe's Beach, also manned with a full time life guard.
A convienant outdoor shower is located at the rear of the house, perfect for after the beach. The house is also equiped with a gas grill just off the kitchen.
The Kenney's beach community is perfect for walking or biking on miles of beachfront and woodland country lanes. Safe for families and children.

Kenney's beach neighborhood is also the home of 'Elbow East' restaurant and bar. Famous for its marinated steaks and seafood. A real local treasure, perfect for lunch, dinner, cocktail, or snack at modest prices. It is located only a few hundred yards away-no car necessary, you can walk or bike.
Two miles to the west of Kenney's Beach is Goldsmith Inlet Park, also located on LI Sound with a beautiful beach and an inlet (think river) that flows inland. You and the kids can ride an inner tube with the incoming tide and float down the river for about a quarter of a mile!
The North Fork has become well know for its vineyards and wineries. One of the finest local wineries is Sparkling Point, which is located at the end of Kenney's Road just a mile from the house. They specialize in the production of award winning sparkling wines. They are open every day for tastings and frequently have outdoor entertainment.
But Sparking Point is only one of 20+ wineries and tasting rooms that are located within a 10 mile radius of the house. Almost every night of the week one of the vineyards will have live music outdoors. Bring a picnic, sit outdoors at the picnic tables, listen to the live music, let the children run in the grass (all of the wineries are very child friendly) and watch the sun go down over the vineyard while sampling the local wine.

The most popular town on the North Fork for shopping, entertainment, and dining is Greenport. This busy summer destination has a waterfront park, boat rides, a merry-go-round, many restaurants, shops, antique stores and art galleries. A perfect place to spend an afternoon or evening out. Don't miss the 'Music in the Park' concerts in both Southold and Greenport. Greenport's is held on Monday evenings all summer in Mitchell Park, right on the waterfront in the heart of town. Bring lawn chairs and a picnic basket and listen to the excellent live music. This event draws large crowds of families. You will enjoy watching the children running around with new found friends and the adults dancing on the stage to the pop music.

Southold's concerts are also family friendly events on Thursday evening in the center of town on the Main Road. The crowds are a little smaller and older, but it is a wonderful way to spend a evening outdoors for a picnic and entertainment. Both the 'music in the park' venues are free.

          The North Fork of Long Island (Southold is located in the geographic center of the North Fork) has become very well know for at least three major activities:1) beaches (including boating and fishing), 2) wine tasting in one of our 50 wineries (Sparking Point Winery is located just a mile from my home), 3) the old whaling port of Greenport, that hums with excitement, shopping, restaurants, recreation, concerts, and nightlife every day of the season.

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2002

          About the owner: I am a semi-retired executive. I grew up on the North Fork of Long Island and moved back to Southold when my children went away to college 12 years ago. It was a great decision to return. I find that to really appreciate the best of the North Fork, one needs to spend time here, especially during the 'season', when the 'bounty of the North Fork' is at its greatest!

          Why the Owner Chose Southold:
          I designed my own new home and supervised its construction. My primary objective in creating this home was to capture the natural beauty of the area, particularly the magnificent sunsets on LI Sound. I was raised in my family home just two miles to the west of my current location. Every night we watched sunsets over LI Sound. That view and memories was what I was trying to capture when I build my new home. This home has exceeded all of my expectations.
