North Fork Dream Home: On the waterfront in Southold

Brought to you by:

Ever imagine waking up in the morning, steps away from a bayfront dock with sweeping views of Shelter Island? This week’s North Fork Dream Home is a perfect oasis for anyone who fantasizes about waterfront living in the hamlet of Southold.

“The waterside deck is to die for,” said listing agent Tom McCarthy of Thomas J. McCarthy real estate. “You can sip a cool drink and watch all of the boating and marine activity from Southold to Greenport and Shelter Island. You feel like the captain on a Cruise Ship!”

The back deck spans the length of this six-bedroom home and is just a flight of steps away from a private beach and dock. McCarthy said one thing that surprises everyone who sets foot in this N. Parish Drive home is that it’s more spacious than it looks.

“It can and does sleep dozens of people comfortably, yet it is a warm, welcoming, cozy place,” he said.

Located west of Goose Creek Beach it’s tucked away in a private location in a neighborhood known for its well-kept homes and beachfront views.

It’s the type of property, McCarthy says, where you don’t exactly need a car to slip away.

“The bayfront dock is super convenient for jumping on the boat for a 10-minute ride to Greenport village or Shelter Island for dinner,” he said. “This is a legacy property that will change your life.”

McCarthy said he was so struck by the possibilities with this particular listing, he created virtual images and walkthroughs for his clients.

“They demonstrate not only what the house is now, but what a reconfiguration and rebuild might look like,” he said. “I accomplished this by keeping the same footprint, reconfiguring the first floor and contemplating a timely second floor reno on 2/3 of the home. See if you can pick up what is old and what is new.”

The home is listed for $2,995,000.
