About John Plucinski

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.

John Plucinski purchased this chateau / country house in 1984

Why John Plucinski chose North Fork

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.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

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.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Had a family gathering for my son's wedding and the house worked out perfectly! Excellent location with easy access to beach, town, vineyards, farms, golf, boating, etc. The home is very spacious and has beautiful architectural details and accommodations. The owner, John, was extremely easy to work with and was attentive to every need in a timely fashion. Everyone in our group, from the elderly (80+) to the grandchildren that visited, loved it and did not want to leave. Hope to be back again.

Owner's Response: Yes, the house is surprisingly accommodating for 3 generation families with the 1st floor sleeper sofa next to the shower/bathroom, and the room with the murphy bed and regular bed for parents with young children. Glad your multi-generations enjoyed it.

Porch sitting fun!

  • 5 of 5

Booked this property for my sisters bachelorette and I was extremely happy with it! John was super helpful and personable and answered literally every question that I had! The house was beautiful and only one block away from a peaceful beach and neighborhood bar. There was plenty of room for all the guests and we enjoyed sitting on the porch and enjoying libations, I look forward to visiting wisteria court again soon!

Bachelorette weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a wonderful weekend at this home! We spent the weekend for my good friend's bachelorette celebration. There was a total of 8 girls and more than enough room in the house! Jamesport is a really cute town and the vineyards we went to for a tour on Saturday were close by. The house is located so close to the beach as well, which we enjoyed on Sunday. The owner is very easy to get in contact with if you have any questions at all! We really enjoyed our time and look forward to planning a trip back soon!

Bachelorette Weekend

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with a group of 13 girls for my sisters bachelorette party this past weekend (July 2015). The house was fantastic; great location, plenty of space and everything we needed. It's about a 5 min walk to a really nice private beach and is close to wineries. About 30 min drive from Orient Point ferry. There were plenty of towels, beach chairs, etc at the house. Kitchen is small but it wasn't an issue at all because it has all the appliances you could need and there are two large dining room tables. And the porch is awesome! I would love to come back next year :)

Also John was very responsive prior to and during our stay via email and text.

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.
