About the property

2 BR/1.5 Baths (+ outdoor shower) with panoramic water views; sleeps 4-5

An uncommonly stylish and incredibly private modern beach house, with spectacular panoramic views of Long Island Sound and the gentle curve of the coastline. Secluded and surrounded by protected sand dunes but NO houses west along the beach – as far as the eye can see – this century-old, handsomely renovated house features massive picture windows framing Long Island Sound, a two-level deck, and BBQ/fire pit. A private 50-yard path leads directly from the fire pit to a serene private stretch of beach. Enjoy stunning sunsets, walks along the beach and outdoor dining and relaxation -- or just gaze out the huge windows at the Sound. On cool evenings, enjoy the warmth of the wood-burning fireplace or make an outdoor fire and roast marshmallows.

The light and airy interior features contemporary and vintage mid-century furnishings, gourmet kitchen, large windows on all sides, sleek hardwood floors, fireplace, high cathedral ceilings and original art throughout.

Tucked away at the end of a private country lane, in a friendly beach community, the cottage is ideal for couples and small families. It's perfect for long walks on the beach; swimming in the Sound; outdoor dining, cocktails and sunning on the decks; easy biking; golf; and excursions just minutes away to the North Fork’s famed wineries, farm stands, and seafood restaurants.

Dog-friendly (one well-trained dog preferred), but not available for weddings, parties, proms or group shares.

About Neil

My wife and I fell in love with the North Fork on our first visit in 2006 and immediately began looking for a vacation home. We love the laid-back, bucolic, anti-Hamptons feel of the area, the friendliness of the people, and the burgeoning food-and-wine scene.

Neil purchased this house in 2007

Why Neil chose North Fork

This small waterfront house had something we never dreamed we could have: incredible privacy and unending water views, with an essentially private beach.

What makes this house unique

You are unlikely to find a house as private as this, with no houses to the west. The views of the beach and Sound are all yours. Hemmed in by the bluff and protected sand dunes, it is far removed from the summer hubbub of Goldsmiths Inlet and the public parking lot at the other end of Sound Avenue.
