If you’ve ever dreamed of opening your own bed and breakfast on the East End, here’s your chance.
This gorgeous, 3,200-square-foot established bed and breakfast, known as Ruby’s Cove and located on Bay Avenue in the heart of Greenport Village, is for sale.
“It’s a great place for a B&B,” said real estate agent JoAnn Wind of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty. “Right across the street is Stirling Square, which now has American Beech, a restaurant and inn. There are two other restaurants in there, plus you can walk to everything in town.”
The house, which could also be sold as a private home, sits on .22 of an acre and includes an owner’s suite with a large bedroom, private bath and sitting room. There are also three additional bedrooms and bathrooms.
Built in the late 1800s, much of the house’s original architectural details have been preserved.
“Everything is still there,” Wind said. “The French doors, the wood floors, the wraparound porch and the beautiful wooden balcony to the second floor.”
A turret is one of the house’s more unusual attractions. On the first floor, the turret contains the living room, while on the second floor it encases a bedroom.
The property also features a barn that was previously used as a garage and is now a space for entertaining guests.
“Sometimes in the summer the barn doors will be opened up and it is used as a dining area,” Wind said.
The third floor consists of a large attic that could be converted into an office or artist’s studio.
If the house continues to be operated as a B&B, the seller is offering up her guest list, which includes email contacts. The buyer would also get to keep the original telephone number and retain the name Ruby’s Cove.
“It is perfect for a B&B in Greenport,” Wind said. “It’s in a prime location for weekend guests because they don’t need a car. They can take the train or the Hampton Jitney into the village, walk to the B&B and walk to everything all weekend.”
