Zen-like retreat in Peconic: North Fork Dream Home

Brought to you by:

The word namaste is transcribed on a rock in the front gardens of this Peconic dream home. The term is a greeting in Hindu custom that conjures feelings of peace and tranquility upon arriving at the 2.5-acre property. The simple saying also bestows a sense of what’s to come behind the doors of the estate.

“As soon as you arrive at the house and see the word ‘namaste,’ you know you’re in for a serene, Shangri-La experience,” said co-listing agent Jesse Stein of Coldwell Banker M&D Good Life. “The outside looks like a traditional colonial house, but when you walk inside, it’s so much more.”

The inside of the five-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom home is perfect for entertaining with a bright open floor plan, a modern kitchen and elegant finishes — there is even an extra wow factor that is certain to impress guests. An indoor reflecting pond — complete with a waterfall — is a focal point as you transition from the kitchen into the formal dining room.

“It is Zen-like,” Stein said. “It feels like you’re walking over water to get to your dining room that has 180 degree views of Richmond Creek.”

The waterfront estate is a boater’s delight with easy access to the Peconic Bay. A private dock can accommodate boats and other gear for water sports.

The well maintained grounds also boast an in-ground pool with a tiki bar and cabana. There is another separate one-bedroom guest cottage as well that has a kitchen.

“The house is suited for someone looking for a waterfront lifestyle who also likes to entertain,” he said. “There are so many wonderful places in this home to entertain.”

The property is being co-listed with Coldwell Banker M&D Good Life agent Gigi Martinez. It’s listed for $1,999,000.
