Spending the off-season in a beach bungalow might sound crazy but hear us out. Picture being tucked away on a sandy peninsula and watching the late season boats enter Stirling Basin from your bed. Sounds dreamy, doesn’t it?
This 700 square-foot cozy beach cottage has a classic layout with an open-plan living room and kitchen, one bedroom, one bathroom, and a front and back porch. The property also has an outdoor shower, a shed for storage, and solar panels.
One of the most unique features of the property is “the duel aspect of a beachfront home with a sandy beach on one end and its own dock on the other that sits on a safe harbor inlet,” said listing agent Jill Dunbar of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. “It’s a bucolic setting with water everywhere.”
At the end of the road that the cottage is located on you’ll find an unspoiled nature preserve with a white sandy beach.
The property sits at the mouth of Stirling Basin and Greenport Harbor and offers views of Shelter Island. “And, the moon risings and sunsets are divine,” adds Dunbar.
Located in Greenport and built in 1950, the home is located in an old-school beach community where the neighbors have known each other for generations. Although the home feels miles and miles away, it’s just a short drive into the heart of Greenport Village.
