When talking home renovations, few things are more satisfying than seeing an old farmhouse retain its initial character. And this Greenport Village farmhouse, built in 1900, is that and so much more.
“While this home dates to the early 1900’s the owners have managed to retain all the old-world charm in its many architectural details while seamlessly adding our modern-day comforts such as central air, smart technology throughout, high-end kitchen appliances, the list goes on. The result is a home that is simple to use but is also very sophisticated,” said listing agent Nora Conant of Douglas Elliman Real Estate.
The renovation of this 1,700-square-foot home, which has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room, dining room, eat-in-kitchen, and a study, was taken on by the owners, one of whom is an internationally renowned interior designer, so the spaces are all exceptionally well thought out and executed.
The home’s first floor has a modern and open-concept layout: The dining room, living room, office, and full bath all flow into one another, with the eat-in-kitchen and media room side-by-side at one end. Upstairs, three bedrooms and a second full bathroom maintain a more traditional layout lending itself to privacy.
The backyard offers an oasis of grass, privet, flowering perennials, and a spacious patio, while the front of the home is inviting with a picturesque front porch perfect for a rocking chair.
There is also a separate large outbuilding that is currently being used as a garage but could easily be repurposed as a studio or guest house.
Conant’s favorite feature of this home is the “extraordinary quality of light that floods in all day long, but most especially in the afternoon: being across the street from the waters of Sterling Cove and being situated on a corner lot provides an abundance of clear skies and light that is quite breathtaking.”
