Car: Not Necessary

Located on a quiet street in Ocean Bay Park, near Seaview. Beach tends to be less crowded and more family oriented than other more crowded areas of OBP. House has a great deck and garden for relaxing with friends. Friends meet at the two bars in OBP, Schooners and Flynns which are also decent restaurants. Seaview market is the closest grocery. Ocean Beach also has several good restaurants, including McGuire's and the Mermaid among the top choices. Tennis is available at the OBP tennis courts this year. Bikes are available at the house to ride into the towns for grocery shopping or various events that may be taking place during the summer.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: Currently retired, we have been coming to Fire Island since the mid 1970s. We currently split our time between NYC and Fire Island when we are not traveling.

Why the Owner Chose Ocean Bay Park, Fire Island, NY, USA:
We bought this property after 20 years renting on Fire Island in Ocean Bay Park and Seaview. We finally settled on this quiet street in OBP and this unique house where we enjoy every year here. We have owned the house for over 20 years.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is unique with high beamed rafters, with some of the beams still having their original labels. We added ceiling fans and skylights to make the house very warm and inviting. The dining room table seats 8 and provides a nice setting for gatherings with friends over dinner.
