Arriving at this Greenport Victorian, lovingly known as “Favorite Place,” is like stepping back in time in the most elegant of ways.
This home, which was constructed in the mid-nineteenth century by David Gelston Floyd, has been shaped by two of the most prominent North Fork families – the Youngs and the Floyds.
Not only does the 1.3-acre property boast loads of charm and history it also contains many beautiful and ornate features that make it a one-of-a-kind listing.
“To find a classic Victorian-era home that offers today’s sought-after features with room to spare is unlike any other classic home for compare,” said listing agent Jerry Cibulski of CENTURY 21 Albertson Realty. “The home and property evoke a feeling of charm and sophistication from the founding families of the North Fork which highlights classic architecture and craftsmanship.”
In the home, you’ll find four spacious bedrooms, each with its own wood-burning fireplaces and original tile hearths, as well as additional wood-burning fireplaces in the living rooms, the den, and the dining room with a total of seven throughout the home. The country kitchen features a rear butler’s pantry, and the study and a private library add to the home’s grandeur.
There are ornate details throughout like the grand staircase that anchors the dining and living room spaces, post and beam hand-hewn timbers and original woodwork that has been lovingly maintained by each owner. Other intriguing architectural elements include porches, balconies, and a porte-cochere adding to the property’s elegance.
The home’s exterior and property grounds are equally beautiful and detailed with a long gable end roof extending the full length of the home over the second story.
“Admiring the grounds under the front covered porch makes you feel like you’re taking morning breakfast on a southern estate. It is the wide wrap-around porch looking through the white birch branches swaying in the breeze that captures your attention,” added Cibulski.
Also, there is an adjacent prairie-like 1.48 acreage that is included in the offering as well.
It is listed at $1,850,000.
