Property description

House on the beach! Watch the sand, water and sunsets. All can be seen from the great room through its endless windows, or from the wooden deck just in front, or from the grassy lawn, or from the master bedroom’s wall of windows above it all. Then take a beach walk or swim in the Long Island Sound. With stunning panoramic views, it is the perfect mix of privacy and easy beachfront living.

This 65-year-old house, which we call the “Sandbox,” was renovated within the last few years, including new appliances and refinished original wood floor. The property is perfect for swimming, sunbathing, boating, walking, jogging and playing with the kids. Even on rainy days it’s lovely – play games or read a book while watching the water (we have board games, cable and a flatscreen TV). Or just lay back on our 9-foot sofa and watch seagulls through the skylight of the cathedral ceiling. The sunsets are spectacular and can be seen from the deck and dining table in the summer. So can the sunrises, but you'll sleep in.

The beach landscape is unusual for this region - bluffs overlooking calm, clear, vast water. Usually the Sound is so clear that you can see your feet. It is also warmer than the ocean. Very kid friendly. On windy days, the waves pick up and seem more like the ocean.

Sleeps comfortably up to 6 adults, 3 children on additional mattresses and 1 small child in crib, If you have a baby or toddler, we can make available the nursery off the master bedroom with its own Sound view. Parking area for at least 4 cars.

If you want to take a ride, tour the local vineyards – you'll be in the heart of Long Island wine country – or find fresh fruit and homemade apple pies at the numerous farm stands or explore the delicious restaurants. Pick berries, apples or pumpkins, depending on the season. You can find it all within 10 minutes of the house. The water park, the aquarium and Tanger Outlet Mall are only 15 minutes away. Stop by the Love Lane Cheese Shop. The Hamptons can be reached in half an hour.


TESTIMONIALS

"we loved your place 😉 Such a great spot 😎"
-Michela, June 2016

"The house is great. The kids stuff and rooms are working out so well. Thank you!"
-Natasha, April 2016

"It’s a great house. You really did a beautiful job with the kitchen and furnishings and all its amenities.... We loved the beach and the view - so private and beautiful. The sunrises and sunsets were spectacular. I was surprised to realize you can see both from the beach! Also, we were so thankful that we could bring Wylie [dog]. He had a blast. It was as if he had a previous life as a fisherman and this was his reunion with the sea. He spent the whole week hunting for dead crabs.... We were thrilled. A vacation we will never forget."
-Margit, May 2016

Owner info

About the owner: This is our dream beach house and we are happy to share it with you. When not at the house, we live in Brooklyn, NY with our son, dog and cat. I'm in humanitarian work and my husband is in the arts.

Why the Owner Chose Riverhead, NY, USA:
We love to swim and the Sound is perfect for us because it is usually clear and we feel most comfortable swimming in water into which we can see. Incredibly the beach is often uncrowded, even on a summer weekend! We also love that it is only 90 minutes from Manhattan and Brooklyn. We also love, love, love the area, with vineyards and farmstands everywhere and a myriad of activities for adults as well as kids. I had a house in the Hamptons but now much prefer the natural and low-key beauty of the Northfork.
