Charming 2-bedroom cottage located on a family-owned waterfront estate that was converted from a circa 1920s chicken coop. This retreat has inspiring views of Shelter Island and is only steps away from the peaceful waters of the Peconic bay. Described by as 'one of the last saltwater farms,' the estate is not only picturesque, but is also an exemplary model of a traditional working farm. Gentle breezes off the bay keep the house naturally cool, so air conditioning is rarely, if ever, needed. Lots of room indoors and out makes the cottage both kid- and pet-friendly. The deck and sprawling lawn make for a great place to entertain friends and family, or the perfect spot to lie back, relax, and relish the view. Stroll along the estate's expansive private beach or have a picnic overlooking the water. The beautiful tree-filled grounds complete the pristine view of the bay and Shelter Island, making the estate an artist’s paradise for all seasons. The cottage is quiet and secluded, yet within easy walking distance to Greenport Village, offering the best of both worlds.
With a strong nautical history, Greenport is a water-lover’s paradise and the perfect destination for sailing, boating, fishing, swimming, kayaking, and canoeing. Mitchell Park Marina is just a short walk from the estate and provides transient slips by the day or week. Please call in advance for reservations to secure your spot.
