About this listing
Enjoy this extremely private, secluded cottage estate, situated on its own 5 acre peninsula with 1700 feet of bay front exposure with spectacular sunsets and our own sandy, child friendly, swimmable beach with private dock for guests' boat (max.30' draft) or have fun with our canoe, kayak or Laser II sailboat. Or just chill on our waterfront hammock or beach or have a sunset dinner or bonfire virtually on the water. And you are always invited to take the chill off the evening in front of the very inviting fireplace or warm up the ivories of the Baldwin B.... if you are so musically inclined!
Constructed in the 1920's as part of one of the South Fork's largest estates, this three bedroom home is furnished with antiques and has a paneled and beamed great room and front porch with sunset exposure and an expansive view of the wildlife refuge across the bay. Every room has a water view. It is surrounded by perennial and rose gardens with an herb garden for serious gourmands.
This room has a view of the harbor beyond the front lawn and outdoor dining area. It is furnished with a full size double (not queen) bed, small dresser and another dresser/bookshelf piece. It has a TV, a low bookshelf unit with children's and adult games and a small steamer trunk to place an open suitcase. There is no hanging closet and IT IS NOT air conditioned. It shares a bathroom (shower) with the larger guestroom.
As a long time lover of nature and the great outdoors, with a healthy interest in the arts, and a great appreciation for the beauty of nature, there is no better place to live than in this warm house on this little peninsula, thrust out into the 'sea' with immediate access to all the advantages and recreation offered by the Hamptons and easy access to all of the culture and diversity of New York City. I have never lived, visited or vacationed anywhere that offered a more cathartic life experience!
Southampton village and ocean beaches are within a 10 minute drive or an easy bike ride. Within minutes of five championship golf courses (Shinnecock, National, Sebonack, Atlantic and Maidstone) and easily accessible to all East End fishing grounds - a fly fishing 'paradise'! A relaxing stroll through Southampton, Sag Harbor, Watermill. Bridgehampton and Easthampton villages is only minutes away unless you'd prefer the outlets in Riverhead. Of course the best compliment so often received from guests has been "...why would we want to leave such a beautiful spot!"
Guests will have full access to and use of the public areas of the house and grounds and some outdoor amenities such as private beach, dining area, seating and hammock, sun umbrellas, fire pit, etc. By special advance request, guests may also have use of outdoor 'toys' such as the canoe, kayak and Laser II sailboat.
