It’s rare that compounds like this come on to the North Fork real estate market.

This 26-acre property in Orient — with 520 feet on Long Island Sound — offers picture perfect sunsets, an elegant backdrop for entertaining and one of the region’s most expansive parcels.

“The property just glows,” said listing agent Sheri Winter Clarry of The Corcoran Group. “That’s the best way to put it.” (more…)

A 124-unit condo complex is preparing to break ground in Cutchogue with the first units expected to be move-in ready by this time next year.

Harvest Pointe, which will occupy 46 acres near the intersection of School House Lane and Griffing Street, opened a nearby sales office earlier this month. On display there are artist renderings of the proposed units, layout plans and countertop samples for the 55-and-over community, previously known as Heritage at Cutchogue.

“We’re building a first-class condominium project,” said Robert Morrow of Kenilworth Equities, which is building the units along with Jeffrey Rimland of Rimland Development. “It’s something that hasn’t been done on the North Fork in 20 years.” (more…)

This three bedroom, three and a half bathroom house on Southold Bay has a New England vibe that feels a little more Nantucket than North Fork.

With the entire back side of the house giving a beautiful view of the water through sliding glass doors, sun beams flood this entire 2,300-square-foot space.

We could get used to living like this.

The back patio of this Orient home, set next to a heated gunite pool, outdoor fireplace and sunken hot tub, offers the perfect setting for uncorking a bottle of Long Island cabernet franc and spending the night laughing with friends.

Located in the Green Acres neighborhood, this four-bedroom, 3.5-bath custom build offers a secluded setting great for having friends over but is equally suited for quiet nights in.

“It’s perfect for entertainment, but it’s really great for solitude,” said listing agent Sheri Winter Clarry of the Corcoran Group. “It’s such a serene setting.” (more…)

Everyone loves convenience, right? The concept of home-delivered meals with fresh ingredients you can cook yourself has taken a little while to catch on. But with companies like Blue Apron and Hello Fresh doing so well, it seems as though it finally has.

And guess what? You can create your own versions right here on the North Fork. As a bonus, you get to know the people growing and raising your food.

These local purveyors actually encourage you to come and visit their farms so you can see the who, what and where. Many also offer everything you need to make a full meal, recipes included.

There is super exciting stuff happening at the following farms. Sign me up! (more…)

Four North Fork properties fetched prices above $5 million in 2015, helping to push total real estate sales in Southold Town to an all-time high.

That growth, local real estate professional say, is bolstered in part by factors that have remained steady.

“It’s the same. Our market is driven by the second-home buyer and retirees,” said agent Nick Planamento of Town and Country Realty, who was involved in 2015’s second-most expensive transaction. “There is a record-low inventory and a strong demand.” (more…)
