Beachfront Classic Artist’s Residence
See the sunrise over Peconic Bay from this historic residence, once home to two prominent artists. Ideal for families, located with a sunny 200’ private beach on the calm waters of the bay – great for sunning, swimming and boating. The 4 acre site is landscaped with outdoor garden dining tables, bay overlook with benches, porches and plenty of grass for family play. Side brick terrace has a warm water outdoor shower, 2 changing rooms, charcoal grill.
A blend of contemporary and antique furniture, oriental rugs and paintings in a spacious interior, make it an elegant yet cozy & comfortable vacation retreat, perfect for family gatherings. Summer days can start on the screened-in dining porch with breakfast overlooking the bay and end with dinner for 8 to 10 by moonlight. The eat-in kitchen is large enough and fully equipped to cook at great meal together, with pantry and plenty of counter space, recently renovated with new appliances and laundry. The 16’ x 33’ living / dining room overlooks the bay. All with wifi, of course.
Called High House because of its unusual height, there are 5 bedrooms on two upper floors that sleep 10, furnished with antique and contemporary furnishings, all with water views: 2nd floor queen master bedroom, queen guest bedroom and new bathroom with tub & shower; 3rd floor twin pink bedroom, double yellow bedroom, small double green bedroom, and new tile shower bathroom with skylight.
The locale offers many choices for a great vacation. There are award-winning vineyards and plentiful farm stands very nearby as well as fishing, boating, bicycling, and shops, restaurants and galleries in the towns of Greenport and Riverhead. Shelter Island and the Hamptons are easily accessible by ferry from Greenport. 2 hr drive from NY City, or via Hampton Jitney at end of street.
