A sweet little house with a whole lot of style on almost an acre of beautiful property. The house is clean and simple, the yard is peaceful and private. There are 3 bedrooms: 2 upstairs (twin beds in one, queen bed in the other) and one downstairs (queen size bed). The kitchen has bamboo counter-tops, a large size refrigerator, a large size oven/stove-top and a washer/dryer in the pantry. 1 full bath with both a shower and bath-tub.
The area is perfect for beach lovers and kayakers--the bay is in walking distance and Smith Point Beaches and Fire Island just a bike ride away.
When at the house, vacationers can expect to feel like they are living within a magical, private garden. The yard is two lots and wonderful for kids, pets or making movies. Artists or writers looking for a quiet place to work, will be extremely content. There are preserved wetlands surrounding the neighborhood, so life's hectic pace can slow down.
Smith Point Beaches and Fire Island are an 8 minute bike ride away. Smith Point has both traditional beach life with snack bars, restaurants, live music and playgrounds, as well as protected seashore, with a stunning wildlife/bird preserve for those seeking more unadorned nature.
LIRR travels to Mastic Beach / Shirley, but it is best to have a car in order to grocery shop, or when you need a quick ride to the beach.
The local attractions are the wetlands, nearby bay for fishing or row boating, kayaking, Smith Point Beach, its bird reserve as well as the elegant Fire Island.
What is most unique about this property is its accessibility. The house is extremely close to the beaches, wetlands and within 2 hours of New York City. The drive from Williamsburg, Brooklyn is 1 hour and 15 minutes, 1 hour and 30 minutes from Manhatttan. The walk to the bay is 1 block. The drive to Fire Island's Smith Point Beach is about 8 minutes.
The place is a perfect get-a-way for travellers needing a respite from Manhattan, surfers looking for good waves, writers or artists looking for a summer studio, or families/couples looking for nature and beaches.
