North Fork architecture is highly synonymous with classic farmhouse style. And while living in an early nineteenth-century original home can be very charming, along with that there is often something that needs fixing or updating. With this week’s featured Dream Home, that’s tucked away on a country lane in Aquebogue, we welcome the luxury of a new-build modern farmhouse.
“This three-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom home will have that warm, homey feeling that a traditional farmhouse gives you with all of the conveniences of new construction,” said listing agent Melissa Principi of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. “The home is designed with an open floor plan, lots of light, high ceilings, and a natural color scheme which are instantly welcoming and fresh.”
The home, which will be completed this summer, is perched on 3 acres of quiet country land and with more than enough room for horse paddocks, a pond, or a sports court. The property also includes approvals for a 36×48 foot accessory building or barn.
Within the home, the first floor consists of a large great room that flows into the kitchen, a powder room, and full laundry, an en-suite master bedroom, and a screened-in porch. The second floor features an en-suite junior master bedroom, a third bedroom, and a bathroom along with a large open room that can be claimed as a home office or home school area. There is a two-car garage with a full bathroom that opens up to the backyard patio with a large saltwater gunite pool.
“All finishes are high end and include a beautiful mix of natural stone and ceramic tile. The house is traditional with fresh modern touches and up to the minute conveniences. An open floor plan with extra high ceilings sweeps you in at the front door where you peek at an all-stainless-steel and airy white kitchen that also features a dove grey oversized island with seating. 6” wide plank Cedar hardwoods are underfoot throughout the home,” added Principi.
The surrounding neighborhood has a horse country feel as many high-end stables have popped up in the area. This is what caught the eye of the developer. Whether you are a horse person or just taking in the sites of the rolling pastures and their grazers is a sight to be seen.
“The beauty of purchasing this home at an early stage is that it’s not too late to add your own personal preferences. Work with our designer and architect to bring your vision to light. Be it your favorite paint colors, a special stone or specific lighting we’re happy to put your touch on things or if you prefer turn-key we will continue with our full-service design-build,” said Principi who is the daughter of the property’s builder and developer, sister of the property’s architect, and daughter of the interior designer – it’s a family affair with a lot of heart and what will be a gorgeous and desirable outcome.
It is listed at $1,900,000.
