This beach cottage in Greenport is near a private beach — perfect for swimming, fishing or kayaking.

And a one-car garage, with doors in the front and back of the structure, make it easy for homeowners to haul in items from the beach, such as kayaks and paddleboards, and store them. Residents can also moor their boats off of the beach and use a dinghy to reach their vessel, said listing agent JoAnn Wind of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty.

“The best feature is the waterfront with 100 feet of sandy beach,” Wind said. “It is very nice and overlooks Shelter Island and Greenport.” (more…)
