Known as “The Esplanade,” this Nantucket-style estate is like no other on the North Fork.
The 7,000-square foot residence located on the west side of Bayview Peninsula in Southold is surrounded by water and preserved land comprised of three Bayfront lots totaling nearly 5 acres of land and 400’ of sandy beach along the Peconic Bay.
Built with high-quality materials the home boasts a timeless and classic design and features five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a Clive Christian kitchen outfitted with a La Cornue gas stove, Sub Zero, and Miele appliances, as well as two offices, a mahogany library, four fireplaces, a sunroom, and more.
“My favorite room in the house is the sunroom,” said co-listing agent Carol Szynaka of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty. “A round room with bluestone floors, warmed by radiant heat and a wood-burning fireplace. Enclosed by either glass or screen trimmed in beautiful mahogany trim with high ceilings and decorated in seaside stripes & fabrics. I would be happy in this room all year long.”
The home has been brilliantly designed so that most rooms in the house face the water and are accessed through a wide hallway that runs along the landward side of the home.
Outside, in addition to sprawling land and bay views all around, you’re greeted by an outdoor kitchen, heated saltwater pool, and jacuzzi, all at the perfect elevation – out of the flood zone, but low enough to experience serene views and salt air.
“The most unique thing about this listing is that the property consists of three single and separate lots, an investment that can be enjoyed today and gives the owner flexibility to build a family compound, develop additional homes or sell all or part of the land in the future,” Szynaka added.
It is listed at $12,500,000.
