The 12 foot ceilings and open floor plan provide an airy setting. Unique and beautiful woodwork, leaded glass windows and an amazing curving staircase greet you upon entering.

The second floor offers a queen master bedroom with a recently restored tile bath, three additional bedrooms with full beds plus an additional full size murphy bed alongside a full size bed in the second bedroom, and a fourth with a queen-sized sleeper sofa bed. One additional tiled bath completes the layout.

The enormous porch offers a lovely setting for catching the bay breezes, reading a book or enjoying a bottle of local wine. Croquet or badminton? There's plenty of room for both. Grab a beach chair and catch the beautiful evening sunsets over the bay or take a 10-minute drive to grab a different view over the Long Island Sound.

Are you a shopper? The Tanger Outlet mall is just 15 minutes way with dozens of stores. Or head to Westhampton which is 20 minutes away for a different experience.

For kids or those young at heart, Downtown Riverhead offers the Atlantis Aquarium with tropical fish, penguins and sea lion shows. Right along the riverfront, there are canoe and kayak rentals to give you a water's edge view.

There is so much to explore on the North Fork. The sea-faring town of Greenport offers its own array of restaurants, shops and sailing adventures along with a 10 minute ferry ride to Shelter Island. A quick drive through it will take you to the South Ferry and offer easy access to Sag Harbor, East Hampton and Montauk.

Car: Recommended

Jamesport is in the heart of the North Fork Wine Country with 24 vineyards all within easy driving distance-- many of which offer music, tours and tastings. The Peconic Bay is just a two block walk with gentle surf perfect for families. The town beach and marina is a five minute drive, complete with a playground, showers , lit tennis and basketball courts. The area is perfect for biking to let you explore the inlets and beaches, spy on herons and egrets, or get some pleasurable exercise. With so many farms surrounding the area, there is a wonderful array of fresh produce, pick your own strawberries, blueberries, peaches and apples-- not to mention freshly roasted corn, pony rides and petting zoos.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1984

About the owner: My family settled in the North Fork in 1949 and we have lived or vacationed here ever since. Once a land of potato farms, we have watched it evolve into vineyards and horse farms which have maintained the rural beauty of this area. Wisteria Court will always hold a special place in our hearts as we had our wedding reception there. Since then we have enjoyed introducing our children and friends to this special place.

Why the Owner Chose South Jamesport, Jamesport, NY, USA:
I purchased this from my parents who had owned the property since 1970 in order to keep it in our family. It has been the setting for numerous gatherings and vacations-- Christmas-tree trimming parties to Fourth of July BBQs.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
This is truly a unique home, built by a candy manufacturer from Manhattan. Rumor has it that President John F. Kennedy stayed here in 1960. From when you see the green-tile roof and expansive wrap-around covered porch, to when you first climb the red-carpeted staircase, you will know that this is a home like no other.
