Wondering what your budget can get you on the red-hot East End real estate market? We’re here to help, home buyers. In our biweekly column, we spotlight homes for sale in hamlets across the North Fork at various price points.

This week, we’re checking out beach cottages along Peconic Bay and its creeks. We know, we know, it’s nearing winter and a beach cottage feels rather far-off but nothing sounds better to us than cozying up with a book and watching the snow fall over the water from the confines of a cute cottage. Are you with us?

This cottage, which overlooks Jockey Creek in Southold, features two bedrooms and one full bathroom, an eat-in kitchen, and of course, a wood-burning stove. It is listed for $1,250,000 by Douglas Elliman Real Estate.

With a sandy beach on one side and your private dock on the other
