This craftsman-style traditional in Greenport evokes the village’s maritime heritage with its custom craftsmanship, cathedral ceilings and water views.
The three-bedroom, two-bath home, located on Sterling Avenue, is currently listed at $995,000.
“Craftsman is very practical and simplistic along the lines, a little bit like Shaker style,” said listing agent Julia Robins of Century 21 Albertson Realty, a former carpenter and builder.
Some of the home’s beautiful wood details include real oak floors, built-in bookcases, wood trim windows and solid wood pocket doors that recess into the walls.
“Even though it has those classic finishes, the entire downstairs — kitchen, dining room and living room — has an open concept layout,” Robins said.
Nine-foot ceilings on the first floor, combined with the open layout, create an amazing sense of space in the main part of the house. Upstairs, the master bedroom features a cathedral ceiling with a lantern, which is an architectural term for a sort of cupola built atop a structure.
“It allows a tremendous amount of light and drama inside the master bedroom,” said Robins who shares the listing with Jennifer Benton.
The master bedroom, which features a walk-out balcony, isn’t the only room in the house with an impressive view. The living room also boasts water vistas.
“Every possible window view has been maximized in this house,” Robins said.
Other amenities include a living room fireplace, a covered front porch with a retractable awning, a patio and sitting area in the backyard, handicapped access and deeded dock rights.
“All the decking is mahogany,” Robins said. “With its shingled siding, gables and front porch, this is the classic traditional look.”
