North Fork Dream Home: Eclectic Southold cottage

Brought to you by:

This magazine-worthy coastal cottage is a dream come true for entertainers who eschew all things cookie-cutter.

The fully modernized 1970s home masks its modest 1,200-square-foot floor plan with a bright, open-concept living space that includes a dinning room, kitchen, entertainment nook, woodburning fireplace, three bedrooms and two baths all located on the main floor.

Bright green and blue walls with white accents illustrate a fun, beachy vibe in a perfectly polished manner. The sophisticated tongue-in-cheek decor was enough to catch the eye of Coastal Living Magazine editors who featured the property in a past issue. “It was designed with family and entertainment in mind,” said listing agent Maureen Sullivan, of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty. “People really enjoy gathering here.”

As eye-catching as the interiors are, they are no match for the 180-degree views of the Peconic Bay that are visible from most rooms and, perhaps, best enjoyed on the home’s large deck. The cottage’s 120-feet of private beach is just steps away, providing convenient access for kayaking, swimming and paddle boarding.

“The water is where the value is,” said Sullivan. “It’s all about the pristine, spectacular view. It’s like the Caribbean — it’s so clear you can see your feet

The property is listed for $1.8 million.
