This summer cottage in Riverhead sits atop a bluff along Long Island Sound and offers water views from all rooms.

Homeowners can access the beach with private steps on their property leading down to the sand. There one can kayak or canoe in the water, with a place nearby to store boats, said listing agent Maryann Iacono of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty.

A backyard deck facing the water and ample room for lounge chairs is perfect for outdoor living, Iacono said. The 1.18 acre property also has room for a pool.

“It’s got beautiful mature perennials throughout,” she said. “They really took their time and and effort into laying out all of the perennials on the property. It’s absolutely stunning. And there’s pea gravel as you enter.”

The 1,320-square-foot home features an open floor plan with two bedrooms on the first floor and a loft bedroom on the second.

Additionally, a newly constructed guest house located about 300 to 400 feet away from the main cottage on Sound Shore Road has another two bedrooms.

“It’s North Fork living at its finest,” Iacono said.

The home is listed at $1,850,000.
