Property description

This stunning house was built in the 1940's and recently renovated by the artist/designer owner. The 1.5 acre waterfront property lies at the end of a long dirt road and is surrounded by abundant trees and greenery. No neighbors are visible. The house is full of antiques, old books and contemporary photography. Windswept stairs lead down to a private beach.

The master suite is upstairs with a queen size bed, separate spacious dressing room and full bath with shower. Across the hall is another large bedroom with bunk beds, terrace and full bath with tub. Downstairs is a single bedroom that has the use of a 1/2 bath. There is also a sleeper sofa in the downstairs library.

The house has central AC and heat. There is a flat screen TV hidden behind cabinetry in the period library with 2 large window seats for curling up with a book. The garage has been converted into a 800 sq ft studio. An antique tiger maple dining table seating 10 can be set up in the quaint brick floored breezeway.

There is a large deck with teak dining furniture overlooking the Sound that has beautiful sunsets. There is both an ample front and back yard with a swing set and tether ball. There is also a professional ping pong table in the studio.

There are stairs leading down to the private beach on the Sound. The beach is rocky with some sand. It is one house away from a state park and landmark lighthouse.

The house is an easily mile by bike from the cute town of Southold, whose highlights are a few antique shops and a great ice-cream parlor. Southold is situated between Greenport and Peconic on the North Fork. It is the same distance from Manhattan as Bridgehampton on the South Fork (minus the traffic). It is a beautiful 45 minute drive to Sag Harbor and the Hamptons via Shelter Island and two little ferries.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I am a photographer and multi media artist. I also do design projects in people's homes. I show my work regularly and my design projects have been published.

Why the Owner Chose Southold, NY, USA:
I sold my home in Bridgehampton and moved to Southold a few years ago. While beautiful, I was tired of the crowds and unrelaxed pace of the Hamptons. I wanted to be engulfed in nature and to hike and have adventures by walking out the back door of our house. We love the peaceful, down to earth feel of the area which is full of farms and wineries. It reminds me of how the South Fork was 30 years ago.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
If you are interested in getting away from it all to a little slice of paradise (your own beach, amazing sunsets, complete privacy), this is the place for you!
