Yes, a plane ticket to the Mediterranean region would be delightful right about now, but while that’s not a possibility, we’ve found a North Fork home that could easily have you fooled into thinking you’re on a European vacation.
Enter the estate’s red baked clay tile roof, a plethora of romantic balconies, a spacious walk-in wine cellar, and sweeping Long Island Sound views and you almost forget you’re on the North Fork.
“The staggering northwest views across Long Island Sound are perfect for lazy summer afternoons around the pool and dramatic crimson sunsets from the main level portico,” said listing agent John de Reeder of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. “Distinct from nearly every other Soundfront homesite, this property rises above the crest of the bluff, putting far more water in the water view.”
The Mediterranean-styled home was custom built to accommodate an extended family with adult children who have children of their own. It boasts five bedrooms each with its own full bathroom, more than enough space to make yourself comfortable inside its open floorplan, and nearly every imaginable amenity.
“Rooms are large and grand, but the open floorplan softens the sense of formality,” adds de Reeder. “A wide variety of interior spaces hosts groups of nearly any size and out-of-the-way nooks furnish spaces for reading and reflection or repose.”
On the stunning property, you’ll also find a heated Gunite pool and hot tub plus a full bathroom serving the pool terrace, a home gym, a covered portico perfect for entertaining and an expansive yard overlooking the Long Island Sound.
The estate, which is located in the Honeysuckle Hills community, a cluster subdivision of 18 properties nestled against the Long Island Sound bluff directly east of Bailies Beach in Mattituck, also includes access to a sandy private beach on Long Island Sound.
“This would be the ideal home for the large family that requires a long list of amenities, appreciates unrivaled dramatic sunsets, and insists upon nothing but the best,” de Reeder concluded.
It is listed at $2,950,000.
