Orient is the North Fork’s most secluded hamlet. Its location east of a narrow stretch of causeway flanked by water gives the community the feeling that it’s an island. If it’s languid afternoons and quiet solace you seek, you’ll find it in historic Orient.

This beautifully preserved 19th century home is located in the heart of Orient on Orchard Street. The four-bedroom, two-bathroom estate is set back on a half-acre of property close to the hamlet’s local café, post office, yacht club and the campus of the Oysterponds Historical Society. Spend the days strolling the bucolic tree-lined streets or on gazing upon the scenery from the home’s two porches. The property is also in walking or biking distance to the local farm stands and beaches.

“A half-acre is a very large lot for the village,” said listing agent Janet Markarian of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty. “You have the advantage of being in the heart of the village and having quite a large parcel of land with room for a pool and/or tennis court.”

The inside retains much of its original historic details while offering modern luxuries like an updated kitchen and bathrooms as well as a screened-in porch and dining patio that overlooks the pastoral backyard. The property also includes a detached garage and large attic for storage.

This home is listed at $1,169,000.
