Location

Beach house is located in Davis Park, which is the easternmost community on Fire Island. There is is a local restaurant/bar 'The Casino', a local general store, liquor store and snack bar, and there is a post office with a book exchange. You can swim, surf, go windsurfing, surf fish in the ocean, go crabbing or clamming in the bay, go birdwatching or beachcombing, hike east to the Watch Hill National Seashore recreation area or just take it easy. Davis Park is quiet, rustic and the perfect getaway. For those unfamiliar with this part of Fire Island - there are no paved roads, no cars, but everything in town is a short walk away.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1977

About the owner: #6 Fifth Walk was built in 1977. It's a classic modern beach house and we value it for it's quiet and seclusion. It's always been a getaway where our family can enjoy the company of friends and recharge ourselves for the work week.

Why the Owner Chose Davis Park, Fire Island, NY, USA:
Currently, three generations of our family, from Grandparents to grandchildren, enjoy our house. Davis Park is where our family has spent every summer since the early 1960's; it's a family-oriented beach community, but its also a unique one, with a diverse make up with families, long-time group renters and singles from all across the region.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
If you love to commune with nature, enjoy a day swimming and sunning at the beach, spent lazy summer evenings on a large breezy deck that overlooks pristine uninhabited Nat'l Park land then you'll also fall in love with this place, as we did.
