This beautiful, one-of-a-kind beach house is located on a private beach facing the spectacular views of Shelter Island and the Peconic Bay (to the East/South East) and Greenport Harbor (to the South). It is nestled on a Sandy Beach like no other location in the area.
If you are planning a vacation or special event outing and want to get away from it all, this is the place to come. Have a picnic on a private beach overlooking the Peconic Bay with your favorite beverage in hand.
As secluded and quiet as the location is, it's only a short stroll away to the quaint maritime Village of Greenport where you will find restaurants, shopping with a variety of boutiques and stores to fit your every need.
The area is also home to approximately 30 vineyards that feature regular tastings and live music in a 'Sonoma' like bucolic setting.
Finally, if you're into bike riding, there's no better place to cycle than the North Fork (to Orient Point) or on Shelter Island where an endless number of stunning views appear at every turn.
Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: My wife and I began coming out to the North Fork of Long Island when we were children. Our families lived in Roslyn LI and always looked forward to our annual visits to the beaches of the town of Southold 'way out near Orient Point'.
Over 10 years ago, my wife and I and our sons began renting homes on the North Fork to be close to our extended family that resides in the area (Greenport, East Marion, and Cutchogue). In 2003, after searching for 4 years, we found and bought the most desirable place on earth, Breakwater (OK, I'm biased but you'll see).
Since then, our summers have been filled with immeasurable joys and lifetime memories. But, for us, the fun doesn't end at Labor Day; we continue to travel (from Westchester, NY) throughout the Fall, Winter, and Spring for grand getaways at Breakwater.
At this time, our very active/athletic boys are in high school making it a little difficult for us to spend as much time as we'd like on Long Island. Once our boys move on, we expect to, once again, enjoy full summers in wonderful Greenport. Until then, our situation is your gain :)
Why the Owner Chose Greenport: Breakwater is but 5 houses away from my brother's summer home on Beach Road, 2 miles from my sister's home on the Long Island Sound in Greenport, and a 1-mile swim to my wife's family in East Marion.
Aside from close proximity to family, our property (as you can see from the aerial views) sits on a peninsula with 270 degree views of Peconic Bay and Greenport Harbor. The location, the land, and the privates beaches of Breakwater are nothing short of stunning.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Our 4 acres of land and beach afford us the opportunity to enjoy several unique sitting areas, each with a fabulous view of the Bay's never ending eye candy.
Close proximity to the beautiful town of Greenport (and all of its shops and restaurants) is another added benefit. You are able to kayak 10-20 minutes across Greenport Harbor into town or you can walk, jog, bike, or drive 2 miles if that's your preference.
