Stepping foot onto this Southold property immediately gives the feeling of a cottage and grounds from your favorite childhood storybook. With charm, light, and mature greenery you’re instantly transported to a calm like no other.
This three-bedroom, two-bathroom New England cedar shake cottage, steps from Horton Point Lighthouse, features a sunny interior with southern exposure.
“I love how bright this house is,” listing agent Sheri Winter Parker of Corcoran told us. “It has southern exposure so there is sun all day. Even on a grey day, you never have to turn the lights on!”
The home’s first floor features an open plan with a gorgeous, original Field Stone fireplace, and French doors leading to a wainscoted sunporch that can serve as a living or dining room, a kitchen, and a bathroom. From this level, there are multiple ways to access the home’s spacious sitting deck.
Upstairs is a bathroom, a primary bedroom with a second Field Stone fireplace, and two additional bedrooms.
The dreamy backyard doesn’t end with the deck which overlooks the home’s lush grounds. In addition, there is a private pool area complete with a 16 x 34 Gunite pool and an outdoor shower. The whole property is lined with privacy hedging.
“The outdoor space is pure magic with mature hydrangea trees and climbing wisteria. The location of the pool was carefully chosen to collect sun all day,” Winter Parker told us.
“When you are there, you don’t want to leave,” she said. “Between the incredible sunsets, beach rights, and charming, private yard – it’s just a slice of heaven!”
It is listed at $1,550,000.
