About the Property

Large 19th century house with gorgeous original detail - and a piano!

The Sea Captain's Home is a sprawling 4-bedroom-plus Italianate Victorian, with large rooms, tall ceilings and striking detail, on a natural 3/4 acre property. The historic house features floor-to-ceiling windows, incredible woodwork and plaster detail, carved fireplaces (decorative) - and a working, tuned, baby grand piano! Farms surround this big, private, peaceful retreat, with open fields behind us, and wild coastline minutes away. A 5-minute drive to the village of Greenport, this gracious home is perfectly located for you to enjoy all that the North Fork offers.

While we do allow some pets, please let us know in advance if you plan to bring one. All pets need to be approved in advance!

The double parlor provides a huge space to kick back and spend some quality time with family and friends. Read, play music, watch movies, or play the piano! The front parlor has a double sofabed, and a twin loveseat sofa bed. In the evening, the pocket doors close the room off completely, to give you a possible fifth bedroom. The rear parlor has a large comfortable sectional, 55" 4k smart TV with Netflix, cable, and Blu Ray DVD player. Play your music throughout the first floor on the Sonos wireless sound system. There is a formal a dining room, and second dining area in the chef's kitchen that seats 6, with windows on 3 sides, views and sunshine. There are pedestal sinks and deep antique claw foot tubs in the oversized bathrooms. The master bedroom has a King bed, the 2nd bedroom has two twins, 3rd bedroom a single bed. The fourth bedroom is a large, 24'x 12' dormer style studio with queen and full size beds, and it's own private staircase that leads directly to the kitchen. All bedrooms are air-conditioned.

The large backyard is filled with shade trees and stays quite cool in summer, perfect for reading in one of the six lounge chairs, or taking a snooze in the hammock. The large brick patio with 2 Weber charcoal grills has tables and chairs to accommodate 10 comfortably for outdoor dining. Relax in the huge yard that backs against acres of open country land for peace, privacy, and a great view.... especially at sunset. The double outdoor shower has a cedar floor and is nestled in a lush private garden.

We offer all of the comforts of home, but with a little something rustic left from days gone by. The property is extremely comfortable, and we are priced very competitively for the size and style home we offer. We are sure you will enjoy it!

Please note - WE DO NOT ALLOW ANY PARTIES OR GATHERINGS AT THE SEA CAPTAIN'S HOME. Any celebrations are to be enjoyed by our overnight guests only. A home of this age could not sustain the wear and tear that comes with the hosting of social events, so please do not plan any such events with our property in mind.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: New York natives who love Long Island and love the North Fork. We are both creative types, and so we appreciate the craftsmanship that went into the creation of this unique home. We love it with all our hearts.

Why the Owner Chose East Marion, NY, USA:
Truly built by a wealthy sea captain in 1860, it was owned by the same fishing family until the late 1970's. We are the fourth owners of this classic home, which has since been updated with modern amenities - yet with the rustic charm of the 1800s left intact. The North Fork is like no other place in the world, and we have been to many! The fishing and farming cultures have engendered a work ethic and an appreciation of nature in the people of the area that we really love.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You really feel the history of the North Fork in this house, in addition to enjoying the abundant nature
