This 19th century home has the best of both worlds — easy access to the beach as well as a happening downtown.

Located on Peconic Bay, the property features 100 feet of bayfront land with a private bulkhead. Additionally, a private beach is just next door. Still, the Cove Circle house is also just a hop, skip and a jump from the restaurants and shops on Greenport’s bustling Front and Main streets.

“It’s really unique in the fact that it has that much bayfront in Greenport and you can still be relatively close to town,” listing agent Janet Markarian, of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty, said. “It’s kind of an interesting combination.”

It makes a quiet evening in just as appealing as a night on the town.

The five bedroom, three and a half bathroom house features a formal living room, dining room and an eat-in country kitchen with an original butler’s pantry.

It also boasts three working fireplaces, one of which is in Markarian’s favorite room in the house.

“I love the master bedroom the most,” she said. “There’s a wood-burning fireplace in it and you can see the bay.”

The 3,642-square-foot home also features high ceilings, which offer great lighting along with a large backyard. Porches on the front and bay side of the structure complete the home, which sits on .75 acres.

“It’s in really nice shape,” Markarian said of the home. “This current family owned it since the ‘70s and has taken really good care of it. It’s really a classic home.”

Built in 1950, it just hit the market last week.

The house is listed at $1,800,000. View the listing here.
