This gorgeous expanded cape in Southold is a true waterside gem, with 142 feet of land bordering Goose Creek.
“This home is impeccable,” said listing agent Marie Beninati of Beninati Associates. “It has stunning expansive Goose Creek water views with a dock, lovely gardens and lots of privacy.”
The home was virtually rebuilt a few years ago, she added, with the addition of a free-standing cottage-style garage with its own picturesque water views.
“The landscaping maximizes privacy and focuses on the waterfront,” she said.
The 3,000 square-foot interior of the home has three bedrooms and 2.5 baths, with an abundance of natural light throughout, according to Beninati. The oversized gathering room opens to a mahogany deck and the unmatched waterfront. There’s also a generous dining room and eat-in kitchen with high-end appliances, large center island and granite countertops.
“The first floor master suite has water views and a large sitting room for writing, reading or enjoying a good movie,” she said. “The master suite also has French doors that allow access to a private garden that would easily accommodate a pond or pool.”
Upstairs are two more grand bedrooms, with a full bath as well as a walk-in closet. Another special addition that’s sure to appeal to fans of the North Fork is the wine cellar in the basement.
“The home has the finest finishings, that show a distinctive European character that shows itself in the attention to details, from the onyx fireplace in the gathering room to the private wine cellar,” Beninati said.
This home would be a dream for anyone looking for a second home as well as those searching for year-round living, she added.
“I have been showing homes for over 20 years, and find that usually, a home appeals to a particular lifestyle segment that a prospective buyer is looking for,” she said. “But this home seems to appeal to most everyone who comes to see it regardless of age or lifestyle. I think it’s partly due to the ambiance created by the high quality of the architecture and wide appeal of the design.”
It is listed for $1,399,900.
