Overview

About the property

Farmhouse, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This contemporary farmhouse is located on a wooded half acre just a ten minute walk from the center of Greenport in the heart of Long Wine Country with its more than 30 vineyards with tasting rooms and live entertainment on the weekends. It is also just 5 blocks from the nearest beach, the nearest restaurant, and the nearest bar. With 3 bicycles available for your use, the house is the perfect “home base” for adventuring the North Fork.

Designed with an open floor plan, the house has two bedrooms (one queen, one double) and full bath upstairs, and a master bedroom and full bath on the first floor (sleeps 6). An “eat in” kitchen and a spacious living area with a wood burning fireplace and beamed cathedral ceiling create an inviting space for gatherings small and large. Sunlight streams into the house through skylights and large windows while floor to ceiling glass doors open off of the living room to a large deck, the backyard and then onto an open woodland.

Trees, berry bushes, birdbaths and birdhouses make the backyard a favorite nesting ground for wildlife as well as a very private retreat. A fenced in front yard is an ideal play area for small children and pets.

The house has central A/C, ceiling fans in the bedrooms and living room, wireless internet connection, a stereo, a 32” TV and a Blu Ray DVD player. Bookcases are filled with books, puzzles and board games. The kitchen is fully equipped: refrigerator with icemaker, microwave, dishwasher, and garbage disposal. The washer and dryer are in the basement.

Greenport’s close proximity to vineyards, orchards, farm stands and a daily catch from the sea combine to make it a “foodies mecca”. Its seafood restaurants, harbor front cafes, and clam bars, not to mention the brewery, bistros, artisanal bakery, home made ice cream shop and Aldo’s fresh roasted coffee have earned the village a reputation as a popular dining destination. Art galleries, antique shops, specialty shops, brewery, a dockside vintage carousel and a movie theatre add to Greenport’s leisure time activities.

Priding itself as the “unHamptons” of the East End, the North Fork offers a great escape from the fast pace of city life. By foot, bike or car explore the backroads and inlets of the North Fork. Swim or fish in the pristine beaches of Long Island Sound and Peconic Bay or canoe, sail or kayak along its waterways (kayaks and canoes are available for rent a short 10 minute bike ride from the house). Hike the nature trails to find your own secluded beach, or bike to nearby vineyards. Stop by one of the many farm stands for just picked produce or the fish market for fresh fish or lobster.

Whether you are looking for a summer get away or a “home base” for a family wedding or celebration, the house offers great space for entertaining family and friends. In the summer it is an ideal launching pad to the areas many beaches and water activities or to take a bicycle tour of the vineyards; in the fall, the apple orchards and pumpkin patches are great “stress reducers”, and in the winter, sitting by an open fire with a good book, good food, and good friends transports you to another time and space.

Just 3 hours from New York City, the house is an easy 10 minute walk to the bus and train terminals that provide daily service to New York City and ferries to Shelter Island and the Hamptons. Greenport can also be reached by car on the Long Island Expressway (90 miles) or by ferry from Connecticut. Long Island’s MacArthur airport is some 50 miles from Greenport.

Why Helena Gronberg chose North Fork

Greenport is only a 3-hour drive from NYC, you do not even need a car as the Jitney stops just a 10min walk from the house. The beautiful north shore beaches are a short walk away and the vineyards, antique - and yard sales of the area make for wonderful outings.

What makes this farmhouse unique

You will enjoy peace and quiet, beautiful nature and the comfort of a fully equipped house.

Convenient Greenport home

  • 5 of 5

Great location to explore Greenport with kids and dogs! Could not be an easier place to get around the town by foot and explore all that Greenport has to offer. Comfortable home with all the necessary amenities including a quick walk to a playgroup and the carousel. We'd love to return!

Greenport Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and two friends stayed in this adorable house after visiting from Australia for a traditional Long Island wedding. The house was immaculately clean and the beds were great for sleeping. The owner left us detailed and helpful instructions and tips and was accommodating all through the process. There is nothing like getting a personal note when you first arrive to feel welcome. Close to restaurants and the ferry. Incredibly affordable as well. Thanks.

Memorial Day weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We came out with 2 other couples and we had a perfect memorial day weekend staying in Greenport at this lovely Farm House. Great location, we are from the City so we enjoyed walking into town. Everything in the house was setup well for our arrival, very clean and organized. Beds were all very comfortable, we slept great. The owners were extremely helpful and responsive to any queries we had. It was also very affordable for this area. I would definitely stay here again!

Lovely house

  • 5 of 5

This house is lovely and clean and has everything you need. There were even bicycles available for our use. We enjoyed beautiful mornings and evenings on the deck watching the birds, and my three year old loved running around the big backyard. The kitchen is well equipped and the owner offered us herbs from the garden, though we were a bit early in the year. This is a very comfortable and pleasant house that we would not hesitate to rent again. Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Glad the house, deck and yard worked out well for you all--and I agree, the birds are such fun to watch. I've just replenished the herb garden--parsley, basil and lemon thyme--hope you will enjoy during your next visit.

Cousins Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This house was wonderful! The house is clean, and had everything my family needed for the weekend. Close distance to town, supermarket, restaurants, etc.! The backyard is big, perfect for BBQs and hanging out. The owner was extremely helpful, and had all the information ready for me. Even left me fresh tomatoes from her garden :)

Definitely recommend this place, and will stay again next time I am in Greenport!
