With water views and access to the beach, this Orient property is a North Fork jewel. The four-bedroom, two-bath house, which is built into a hill, sits on 1.21 acres on Birdseye Road.
“The views are by far the most expansive and panoramic on the entire North Fork,” said real estate agent Alexander Aquino of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty in Greenport. “As a realtor, I’ve been to many waterfront homes and this takes the prize.”
The home’s main floor features unobstructed views of the Long Island Sound that look toward the shores of Connecticut and across Orient Harbor Bay toward Shelter Island. Even the basement windows have views of the water.
“From the balcony on the second floor, the views only become more impressive,” Aquino said. “The sunsets are nothing short of inspiring. This house is for anyone who enjoys having a view of the water from literally every room in the house.”
Due to the home’s height, it’s not uncommon to observe osprey flying at eye level (from the first floor) in the summertime or below you, viewed from the second-floor balcony. In the winter, red-tailed hawks can be observed resting on surrounding tree branches.
If you love wood details, you’ll appreciate the craftsmanship in this house. The siding is red cedar, while the wrap-around porch and balcony are made of mahogany. The home’s interior flooring is birds-eye maple and the custom-built kitchen is made of cherry and maple wood.
The house also features Marvin windows and doors with double panes that use gas to soundproof and insulate the structure, blocking noise from wind gusts up to 60 miles per hour. Stone quartz imported from Canada was used to build the exterior foundation and chimney.
An oversized fireplace dominates the first-floor living area, while another fireplace is the centerpiece of the master bedroom.
While the property offers a perfect private setting, the region is still conveniently accessible. The home is located within walking distance to Latham Farms in the summer time, as well as Village Lane and the Orient Yacht Club. A four-minute drive will get you to Greenport, while the Hampton Jitney offers drop-offs and pick-ups about a quarter mile down Route 25. Meanwhile, the ferry from Orient Point to New London, Conn., is a five-mile drive away.
“And with a private deeded beach, you could walk for miles along Long Island Sound,” Aquino said.
