About Justin van Fleet
Fabian and Justin purchased our home in the Summer of 2018 and were determined to turn this old piano-factory-turned farmhouse built in 1900 into a relaxing oasis steps from Bellport Village. We worked hard over the past year on fixing up the home -- new roof, painting indoor and out, landscaping, kitchen, bathrooms, driveway, central air and more. We love our home and can't wait to share it with you, too!

Why Justin van Fleet chose Bellport
We love our home which was originally built in 1900 to build "Peek & Sons" pianos. In the 1930s, it was converted to a single family home with horse stables. Today it retains its farmhouse country charm with some original features as well as all of the modern amenities. It has original large windows on all sides of the home and receives beautiful sunlight on sunny Bellport days. Bellport is the South Fork’s best kept secret. There is no “off season," but instead peace, quiet and charm for days. Only 1.5 hours from the city and easily accessed via the LIRR, it's a true gem with a pretty little village and beautiful marina. Our home is across the street from the Bellport Country Club which makes it a perfect location for people coming to Bellport for weddings and other events. Our home has four spacious bedrooms, a large dining room for enjoying a beautiful meal, a large living room with two large couches (which can be used for sleeping) and a welcoming screened in porch which is perfect to read a book in the afternoon or to hang out with friends and family in the evening. In 2019, we have made some upgrades to our home, including a brand new 50-foot heated swimming pool, a new central air system. brand new kitchen appliances and updating of all three bathrooms with new tubs, tile, sinks and fixtures. The house is a 7-10 minute walk to the center of town and another 5-10 minutes to the marina. Or you can use our bike if someone needs to make a quick trip to the store. The house has ample room for groups and families of all sizes. Nearly all of the furnishings are recently purchased. We use the home and have furnished and decorated it in a way that we love and hope guests do as well. The house sleeps up to 10 (three bedrooms with queen beds; one master bedroom with a king bed; living room has has two couches which could also be used for sleeping).
What makes this House unique
The entire back yard is fenced in with a 6-foot cedar fence making the pool and back patio a special place to be. The screened in porch and hammocks make it a fantastic place to relax in all seasons. A short walk to the restaurants, shops and stores in Bellport Village. We also have a farm share at the local organic farm; during the season, guests staying on Friday are welcome to pick up our share and cut fresh flowers for the house.

Bellport is a beautiful village on the south shore of Long Island. You could relax and never leave the home -- or enjoy a stroll to the village to see the various shops and restaurants -- or enjoy all that our area has to enjoy -- beaches, vineyards and more!
Our favorite thing to do is walk to the bay to see the water or catch a concert on a summer weekend. You can also go by the Marquee Gallery to see the latest collections, take the family to the playground on the bay, or go for a night out in Bellport Village at the Bellport and Porters, go down to Painters to enjoy some of their beers, or go out for a night on the town in neighboring Patchogue which is 10 minutes away and has amazing restaurants and bars.
We are on the bay with very easy ocean access. We are a short drive/Uber ride to major Fire Island Ferries: Davis Park, Fire Island Pines & Cherry Grove. A short 20 min drive to Smith Point State Park.
For a day trip, you can go to wine country in the North Fork (~30 minutes away) or go another 45 minutes west to the Hamptons and the various galleries and beaches.
